Posting lyrics of a song without the music

Q: Music is haraam. Can I listen to songs which has no music in it but the vocals only or can I post it on Instagram without the music, only the vocals which doesn't have any impropriety lyrics?

A: If it is sung in conformity with musical notes and tunes then too it will not be permissible. (Imdaad-ul-Fataawa, vol. 6, p. 197)

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
