    In my time on youtube I have noticed that lyric videos get alot of views and subscribers. There are some channels that post one video that get ranked very high and gets over a million views. Also there are channels with one viral vids and no recent activity but have thousands of subscribers.

    So I was thinking I could create a channel completely devoted to lyric video of top songs. I applied for an itunes affiliate but no surprise they denied my request.

    So what are some other ways to monetize the channel? Adsense is without a question not an option. Perhaps I could post the videos to a wordpress blog and monetize that with adsense and see if itunes will accept that application. What about a CPA offer to perhaps a free itunes or google play gift card?

    Host a site of your own and place demographic appropriate offers/banners ....

    You're very limited with what you can actually do on Youtube itself, just use it for traffic

    By lyric videos I think you mean videos where an original artist's song is playing and you have the words appearing on the screen.
    If this is the case then you CANNOT monetize them.
    YouTube policies strictly stipulate that you can only profit from a video if:
    "1. You created the content or have permission to use it commercially.
    2. You are able to provide documentation proving you own commercial rights to all audio and video content.
    "
