Lyrics-writing tutorials

Recently I made a topic on a forum about the lyrics I've written, and after a while someone posted that I should take courses in lyricwriting.
Now, I don't have time for a whole course, but it would be great if you could recommend any great YouTube tutorials on writing proper lyrics

If you really want to do it, then you would take the time.

Sorry, that is how life is. Nothing of value comes without working at it.
A good start - find some kind of writer's group in your area.

Are you familiar wih the free online courses offered by www.coursera.org? Check out Pat Pattison's Songwriting course. Excellent value for the (no) money. The course is six weeks long, and I believe it's offered two to three times a year. Pat also has a number of online tutorials.
You can see them on his website.

I'd suggest picking up a couple of good books on writing lyrics. Authors I recommend in particular are Pat Pattison and Shelia Davis. For the basics, 'Songwriting for Dummies' (by Peterik, Austin, & Bickford) is also excellent.
