The song lyrics are in the title.

"Majestic," Journey Length::41 (Live); 1:16 (Studio)
"Majestic" is the very first song that appears on "Captured" before it segues into "Where Were You." The studio version of "Majestic" which appears on "Evolution" is slightly longer than the live version which appears on "Captured." The only "lyrics" that are heard in this song are "Ahh, ahh," which is sung three times. Unlike the live version, the studio version opens with a few guitar notes, which is why the live version is shorter.
"Changes," Olivia Newton-John Length:2:33
This was probably the shortest Olivia Newton-John song ever recorded. The song "Changes" by Yes, which by the way is a different song, is 6:20 minutes long.
"Stay Awhile," Journey Length:2:48
This song sounds somewhat like "Lights." As a result, on their live albums "Captured" and "Greatest Hits Live," "Lights" segues into "Stay Awhile." However, "Lights" and "Stay Awhile" appear on two different studio albums. "Lights" appears on "Infinity." The latter song appears on "Departure."
Jennifer Hate Hewitt
"Pinion," Nine Inch Nails Length:1:00
The shortest song off of the "Broken" EP, with nothing but one guitar riff repeated several times.
Hardrock Henry
"Falling Through The Ice," The Ocean Blue Length:1:25
A completely instrumental track from the band's 1991 album Cerulean. At a little under a minute and a half it's the shortest song and the only song without lyrics on the album. It's a few songs before the last one. It's a nice instrumental piece but I have no idea what the title is about, and I wonder why they named it that. Or why it's the only song on the album without words.
"Just A Song Before I Go," Crosby, Stills & Nash Length:2:14
Probably the shortest CS&N song ever recorded.
"The Grand Finale," Styx Length:1:57
The last song on the group's album, "The Grand Illusion". Most of this song is the ending chord on the organ that seems to go on forever.
Frosty The Cat
"Mr. Sandman," Emmylou Harris Length:2:00
Emmylou's version is 4 seconds shorter than the original song by The Chordettes.
Odie Garfield
"Race Car Ya-Yas," Cake Length:1:21
From their album "Fashion Nugget"

"Lukin," Pearl Jam Length:1:02
