How do I automatically or easily add lyrics to each of my songs on iTunes?

I really enjoy viewing song lyrics on my iPod Classic, but lately I haven't found a good solution for automatically adding said lyrics to each of my songs in my ever-growing collection. It would be terribly strenuous to enter them manually.
There was a widget I used a while back called PearLyrics, which stopped becoming available after the team responsible faced a legal threat. Are there any other options?

For Windows users, the free app LyricsFetcher is fast and fairly accurate, although it's not clear where the lyrics come from.
iLyrics also seems to be a good option. It pulls from LyricWiki, which may or may not be entirely accurate, but it's still a lot better than typing lyrics in by hand.
Another PC-only option is the LyricsSeeker Plugin, which pulls from the MetroLyrics database.
For Mac OS, Get Lyrical should do the trick. It also pulls from LyricWiki.
