Songwriters should write their own lyrics but that doesn't mean you can't play around with generator tools. They might even inspire you to write your own lyrics. These tools will automatically generate lyrics for a complete song. Most of them generate lyrics based on text the user inputs in an online form. Many of the generated songs sound ridiculous as you might expect. Here are some of the best and most popular online song generator tools:
Deap Beat - Deep Beat is a a rap lyrics generating AI. You can have it build a complete song or work on a rap line by line. The AI is available to suggest lines or rhyming lines.

Writerbot - The Writebot lyrics generator will create a song for you. The input options include genre and emotion. Generate a boastful rap song or a happy/mellow country song.
Artificial intelligence has also been used to create complete songs. For example, researchers at SONY CSL Research Lab create a song entirely composed by AI called "Daddy's Car." It was composed in the style of The Beatles. The Verge is concerned about the song's "strange, foreboding lyrics." AI generated lyrics often seem weird or off. They certainly aren't perfect ... at least not yet.
