I would not go with lyrics...I think I know the juv skater who skates to Lion King and is VERY good. So it can be done and doesn't seem to deter the skater from doing well, if the skater is a strong skater on her own merit. She skated to the same music last year at Liberty. If she's the one I'm thinking of, she has a sister who also skated to music with lyrics last year, and is also an amazing skater. Personally, I find it too show skater-ish and a little distracting. If you want to though, there is nothing saying you can't or that you can't do well competitively if you do.
