This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
@Gnoupi - my question is totally different. it's not "Which is the best subtitle file editor (srt)?" –  metal gear solid Jul 13 '10 at 19:29
    
your question is "how to take text and match it to a video". It's the same as editing subtitles in my opinion. Nothing will do the job for you to put the lyrics on the good place. The answers given are all recommending you subtitle editors. This is why I closed it as duplicate, to avoid duplicating answers. –  Gnoupi Jul 13 '10 at 19:56

AegiSub is an excellent subtitle tool.
It has specialized Karaoke features.
It handles Unicode, and is well documented, and is free.

This Kanji Timer video wil give you some idea of its abilities.

Setting up timed subtitles is a time consuming job, no matter which program you use.
You are the only "tool" which can identify the correct timing.

Try Subtitle Edit:

Subtitle Edit is a free (open source) editor for video subtitles - a subtitle editor :)

With SE you can easily adjust a subtitle if it is out of sync with the video in several different ways. You can also use SE for making new subtitles from scratch (do use the time-line/waveform/spectrogram) or translating subtitles.
