    I'm looking to start a lyrics site but I have no idea where to start, should I hire someone to do a custom system or is there something out there?

    Pretty much you're just going to have text lyrics on your site?

    Just hire a programmer if you don't know how to do basic code and add subpages whenever you want to add a new song.

    Or did I miss the question entirely?

    Just scrape the existing lyrics sites for their content. You could make your own CMS or you could use something like Wordpress, it doesn't really matter.

    Be aware that you can have considerable legal difficulties with lyrics sites. Also the competition is fierce and the traffic is generally crap quality.

    OP, check out the dl section for an existing lyrics database dump which contains close to 300k lyrics.

    HTH :D
