## Re: piano staves and lyrics

```Hi Gerald,

```
\addlyrics can't handle polyphony. See NR v.2.13. You should use \lyricsto. You just forgot to add \new Lyrics:
```

```
If you'd like to have the lyrics in between the two staves you have to add:
```
\layout { \context { \PianoStaff \accepts Lyrics } }

Hope this helps,
patrick

I've included a minimal example below; why doesn't it work and how do I correct it?

Many thanks yet again,
