Generate staff-less chord and lyrics sheet

I have a working .ly-file that displays a staff with notes, lyrics and
chordnames, all correctly counted/aligned.

I wonder if there is any command to generate a sheet with only chords
and lyrics, no staves.

The output should look something like this:

C               F     C
Mary had a little lamb
     F               G          C
Its fleece was white as snow

with the chord names printed nicely above the corresponding syllable
(the .ly-file could calculate the alignment from combining the given
lyrics- and notes-information), but hyphens removed, and linebreaks
at, say every given number of measures.

What would be the term to search for, in case there already is some
ready-to-learn solution?

I could simply write my sheet in some office programme, but it will be
easier to transpose things forth and back and to regenerate sheets
from new and modified files, so I'd really look forward to a solution.
