Python script to get lyrics from LyricWiki for mpd

I wrote a simple script that will allow users of mpd to fetch lyrics from LyricWiki.org. You can get it here, but first you must install python-zsi package via synaptic or any other package manager of your choice. If you're using Ubuntu then just type this code in terminal to install python-zsi:

sudo apt-get install python-zsi

Then extract the wily.tar.gz archive to any folder you want, navigate to that folder from terminal and type:

python wily.py

The script will fetch lyrics from LyricWiki, if there's any, for the current song that the mpd is playing. If there is no lyrics for the current song it will print Not Found message. I hope you like it. Greets!
