I have used fragments like you but more or less always ended up with lilypondfile instead, the fragment grows and it it easier to test it as a seperate file.

As is explained below, you should probably skip the
"fragment" option. However, an alternative to using
lilypondfile is to make a separate "style file" that you
can include in all your examples using
\include ""

Such a style file could for example contain
   \override LyricText #'font-series = #'bold

if you want all lyrics text to be bold font. See "Style Sheets"
in the manual for more general information on these kind of
style sheets.
