I'm trying to set two verses. Verse 1 has an extra note, and it's no

Using \skip won't work because a lyric hyphen doesn't like having a skip
the end.

not sure i understand the problem fully - i tried the following under \version "2.13.6" and for me there *is* a hyphen between la and la in the
2nd verse:

lyricsTwo = \lyricmode { la -- \skip 4 la }

Yes, this works for me too.

But if you still have a problem the simplest
alternative is to hard-code the hyphen:

lyricsTwo = \lyricmode { la "-" la }
