Royals has already earned Lorde a set of Grammys, fame, and other awards, and now the lyrics will help other Kiwi songwriters.

A handwritten copy of the lyrics of the New Zealand singer's song is up for grabs in a charity auction.

The lyric sheet of the Grammy award-winning hit, penned and signed by Lorde and co-writer and producer Joel Little, is being auctioned on TradeMe, with proceeds going to the Play It Strange Trust.

The money will go towards the running of programmes for young New Zealand songwriters and recording artists.

The charity put in the request for the lyric sheet after Royals won the APRA Silver Scroll award last year, and Lorde obliged.
When Little returned from the Grammy celebrations in January, Play It Strange chief executive Mike Chunn and general manager Debbie Little, who happens to be Joel's cousin, picked it up from Little's Golden Age Studio in Auckland.

Lorde at 16 became the youngest artist in 26 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
