I like Rap Genius - their intuitive UI and wikipedia style crowd-sourcing provide more user value than most lyric sites.

Google will punish spammy tactics even if the site in question is providing real value for users and has a strong online community (RG has >500k FB fans).
Key point: talk to a professional search engine marketer before scaling your next "growth hack."
