Thanks Mats, that gave me enough to fix my problems.
It makes things a little inconvenient, however, when a voice comes in
just for a little bit in the middle of a piece.

E.g., I'd like to be able to do this:

sop=\notes\relative  c' \context Voice = tune {

        c'4 c c c |
        \context Staff = top <
                 \context Voice = tune { \voiceOne d d d d }
                 \context Voice = mezzo { \voiceTwo b b b b }
        c c c c

words = \lyrics {
      bah bah bah bah boo boo boo boo bah bah bah bah 

mezzoWords=\lyrics {
      ah ah ah ah

\score {
       \context Staff = top \sop
          \context LyricsVoice = "tune-1" \words
          \context LyricsVoice = "mezzo-1" \mezzoWords

The names of the LyricsVoice should tell Lilypond which Voice to
attach them to.  If ther's only a single voice, there's no point
naming the LyricsVoice.
