Hi Joram!
That is the kind of automisation that I use and like. But it also shows
the difficulties that Werner mentioned: Text hyphenation patterns are
not always what is needed for lyrics.

Is there a set of official rules how hyphenation is done for lyrics? I
just found some forums where the advice is rather ambiguous.

Well, for the german language you would use the official hyphenation rules that 
apply to
hyphenation at the end of a line as a base. Obviously one of the rules cannot 
be used for
lyrics: it's also necessary to hyphenate single vowels at the start or end of 
words like aber,
über, etc.

Have a look at http://projekte.dante.de/Trennmuster ... Werner knows that URL
