You could write something like:

  \score {
    \new Staff <<
      \new Voice { \thenotes }
      \addlyrics { \thetext }
    \layout { }
    \header { piece = \heading }

in a file the-above.ily, and then put in your main file:

  heading = \markup { "whatever" }
  thenotes = { … }
  thetext = \lyricmode { … }
  \include "the-above.ily"

  heading = \markup { "whatever else" }
  thenotes = { … }
  thetext = \lyricmode { … }
  \include "the-above.ily"

and so on.

In your first posting of another thread,
you attached a file. It was posted as "text/x-lilypond, quoted, iso-8859-1"
but it started with a BOM:

  Character name        ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE
  Hex code point        FEFF
  Decimal code point    65279
  Hex UTF-8 bytes       EF BB BF
  Octal UTF-8 bytes     357 273 277
  UTF-8 bytes as Latin-1 characters bytes               ï » ¿

Perhaps that has crept into your source files.
