It depends on how long the section that's the same is.  If it's long,
I find the simplest way is to just split the tune where you need
different numbers of words, and then put it together in the score


wordsA = \lyrics{these words are the same for all parts.}

wordsB = \lyrics {and these are for the soprano.}

wordsC = \lyrics { and these are just for the alto.}

notesAsop = \notes {soprano notes that go with wordsA}

notesAalt = \notes {alto notes that go with wordsA}

notesB = \notes {notes that go with wordsB}

notesC = \notes{ notes that go with wordsC}

\score = {<\addlyrics{\notesAsop \wordsA}
        <\addlyrics{\notesB \wordsB}
        \addlyrics{\notesC =wordsC}

If you have lots of short little sections where the words differ or
are the same, Jan's suggestion is probably better.
