Yeah it's a great feature. The answer is if you have the default english settings lyricwiki a very large on-line media database.

There's a script that gets the lyrics from Lyricwiki you can turn it on or off at:

Settings -> Configure Amarok... -> Scripts (on the left edge)
then check or uncheck the Lyricwiki script
