Lyrics, on the other hand, are a different kettle of fish that AI still can’t get its arms around.

Christmas Songs Created By Artificial Intelligence – Worse Than Coal In Your Stocking? – Synthtopia

Our dataset consisted of about a hundred Christmas tunes and was collected in MIDI format. A MIDI-file is a text file containing the notes and length and loudness of each note. Because of this, the MIDI format is suitable for doing machine learning tasks. For converting we used Music21, an open source library to read and write playable MIDI files.
