The easiest solution is probably to replace

StaffAText = \lyrics {
        \simultaneous {
                        This is verse one  _ }
                        And Verse Two is me }


StaffAText = \lyrics {
        \simultaneous {
                \new Lyrics {
                        This is verse one  _ }
                \new Lyrics {
                        And Verse Two is me }

Optionally, you could then also replace the
\context Lyrics="StaffAText" \StaffAText
with just

As a next step, I would recommend to replace the \addlyrics with
\lyricsto, but then you have to name the Voice, not the Staff.
I'm not sure how Noteedit handles multiple voices in a Staff, but
in your example it can be done by

\score {
        \simultaneous {
                \set Score.skipBars = ##t
\set Score.melismaBusyProperties = #'(melismaBusy slurMelismaBusy tieMelismaBusy)
                \context Voice="StaffA" \StaffA
                \lyricsto "StaffA" \StaffAText

I'm trying to learn enough lilypond to figure this one out myself, but
it's taking longer than I had hoped, so I'm begging for help.

In Noteedit 2.7.3 (from the ccrma rhfc2 i386 rpm) I can export as
lilypond without problem until I add a second verse lyric to a staff.
Then lilypond gets errors.  It produces midi, ps, and pdf, but the
print versions don't have the lyric for the second verse.

I've attached 2 simple lilypond files exported from noteedit.  With
one verse, lilypond is fine, but as soon as the second verse lyric is
added lilypond starts spitting out things like: warning: Junking event: `LyricEvent':
                          d Verse Two is me }

I'm running lilypond 2.2.6 also from the planet ccrma apt repository
rpm on FC2 on a dual Xeon Dell precision 650.

I've looked at some of the multi-verse .ly's on and they
do lyrics so differently from this that I would have a hard time
patching the current exporter to match that.

What I'm hoping is that someone with more experience with lilypond can
point out a small tweak that I can apply to noteedit to get it
working.  If not, I'll keep learning lilypond and try to make noteedit
export lyrics more like the lilypond tutorial and the samples I've
