organic "is this what you were looking for?" by google lyrics

It's a little sketchy (in a "is this a monopoly abusing its power" kind of way) that Google made song lyric lookup a built-in, don't-have-to-go-the-site-providing-the-information. One thing I noticed as a little irritating is that it always shows you like a lot of lyrics, 1/3 to 1/2 but makes you click to see it all. I guess this has two advantages: one is you can still see the actual web results beneath when the page loads, but more importantly, if someone expands the preview it is a confirmation that the result was a good hit for the search terms used. (I understand this is UI/UX/SEO 101 stuff, but still I hadn't framed it that way for myself before.)
