I'm bad at searching for lyrics

I try searching for hte name of the song plus hte word lyrics. No good. I search for band name plus lyrics, no good. Search for lyrics site then searching for the sings sems equally useless. I never said I was good at no internet, eh? Can anyone help? Tips, site suggestions?

Oh, the 2 specific congs I want are Peaches "I'm the Kinda" and Broken Social Scene "Anthem for a 17 year old girl"

Yeah, I did try that thanks though. On the broken social scene site you can actually listen to all the songs, which is cool.

lyrics and "name of song"

or

lyrics and "a few of the lyrics from the song"

it will look for pages that contain the word lyrics, and whatever is in the quotes - in that order.

sometimes the song lyrics will be on a page or text without the word lyrics, so I'll just put a few of the lyrics in quotes. That will find it sometimes as well...

hope this was of some help, even for future reference...

Thanks to HotSauce I tried the search by a segment of lyrics thing and got the same website badkitty did so yay! So for anyone to lazy to click on the link it's actually

"Used to be one of the rotten ones and I liked you for that
Now you’re all gone, got you’re makeup on and you’re not coming back.
Bleachin your teeth, smilin flash, talkin trash under your breath
Park that car, drop that phone, sleep on the floor, dream about me"

with all the requisite repeats. It was smilin flash/talking trash I wasn't sure I was hearing right.

As for Peaches, it's much much harder. The only thing I can find at all is

I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH
I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH
I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH

I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH
I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH
I'M THE KIND OF BITCH THAT YOU WANT TO GET WITH

SODOM AND GOMORRAH, TODAY AND TOMORROW
AND MY AURA SHINES LIKE MANURE
MY LABIA MAJORA MAKES ME A WHORE
(Unclear) YOU CAN'T IGNORE IT
(Unclear) HUMAN REMAINS
WORLD PROVIDER (Unclear)
ROCKIN' THE FOX JUST GET IN MY BOX
GIVIN' A WHIRL TO MY URBAN COWGIRL
(Audience cheers and applause)
KNOCKING YOU OUT LIKE ROCKY BALBOA

So it's mising the 'soft as angora' line which I love, among others, but perhaps it helps becuase what I was confused about was the aura line: I was sure she was saying her aura was a menorah and what the fuck would that mean, except you can stick candles in it?

i usually just go to google and type in the word lyrics and then the name of the song and the name of the artist or band if i know it ... i've yet to look for the lyrics to a song and not find 'em - either that way or by trying other combinations in the search field, but i'm certain some songs are harder than others to find
