I have some songs in English that do not have published lyrics due to those are not popular. So I'm looking for an online service or a standalone app that can extract (recognize) lyrics (as text) from a song (say, mp3).

    I don't think that speech synthesis is at that advanced level yet, especially when there are other sounds (like music) involved. Try uploading the file to YouTube and take a look at the closed captions to get an idea – Tymric Oct 2 '14 at 21:25
  • Keep in mind that it is impossible to get 100% accuracy in this as in singing things like rhythm and amount of syllables are often more important than "correct" words. So, words will be cut of or at a grammatically incorrect place or intentionally misspoken to add multiple meanings etc. understanding art is something computers perform horribly at. – Angelo Fuchs Oct 8 '14 at 10:21
