Lyrics above/below staff?

Hi! I'm a new Lilypond user. I'm using version 1.4.7.jnc2 under Win98 with 
cygwin packages (i.e. python, etc.)

I'm trying to typeset a SATB choral peice with an integrated piano part. I have 
general layout working with the four choral parts on two staffs and the piano 

For the most part, the one line of lyrics is uniform over all four parts. But 
in at least 
one section of the music there are four different simultaneous lyrics. I'd like 
to put 
the soprano part above the top staff, the alto below the top staff, the tenor 
the lower staff and the bass below the lower staff.  Placing the lyrics below 
the staff 
is not a problem; I'm using \addlyrics.  Its getting the other lyrics above the 
staff that 
is a problem for me.  Any ideas?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
