Old songs in MIDI

I am the first to admit that MIDI, while it has a lot of merits, tends to be the idiot uncle in the digital music age. You would never sit down in front of your entertainment system with a glass of Merlot and fire up an album of MIDI renditions!

However, while being a very svelte way to encode music it is a clinically faithful audible representation of the notes. So for those of us who don't sight-read but still like to sing it may be a good portal.

Here's a website that should be just such a boon. However, I don't seem to be getting the lyrics they "advertise" in my Windows Media Player. I sure would appreciate some advice. I'd like to learn some of these songs.
