How to put lyrics into an Essay?

I'm writing my research paper on music as a form of protest and I need examples of the specific artists I want to use, their lyrics. But I have no idea how I put them into the essay. The lyrics. It's confusing me and I don't think I type them like I would a normal quotation?

You can use Harvard quotation style e.g. "lyrics" (Artist, year), and at the end of the paper you mention artist's name, the year when the song was realized, song's name, the person who wrote the lyrics, and you can also post the link with the lyrics and the day you have accessed the link. :)

Great question! Catalina's idea is a good one, and in fact I encourage you to write the paper and stop thinking about it for now. Just get your paper written. It is easy to write if you stay in that creative state of mind that makes the ideas flow from your mind.

When you finish, you can format it like this:
"Just one world that we all must share / not enough just to stand and stare" (author name).
A slash mark is used to separate the lines.
