I found Wordle.net to be a great tool for making these lyric questions. The idea is that you plug in any text you like and Wordle automatically re-arranges it into pretty text clouds where more-frequently used words appear larger. You can control colours and fonts.

Of course, you can use any text you like but I found it particularly useful, from a quiz point of view, to create lyric questions. You can make your own or use these which I made earlier:
