Lexicography for $50, Alex

So, by convention, a song's name is given in quotes, e.g. "Fish heads." And the punctuation following a quoted phrase goes inside the quotes.

So what the hell do I do with this: I want the name of a song, ("Highways") to be possessive, (i.e. '"Highways'" lyrics') so where do all those punctuation marks go?

Extra points: 'The lyrics of "Louie Louie" were not as good as "Highways'."' -- a song title ending in 's' as a possessive at the end of a sentence.

I think that's why there's no punctuation in Hebrew.
