Hi gawtarnik,

you will need to use some video editing software such as Windows Movie Maker:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/updates/moviemaker2.mspx

You need to create a new project and drag your mp3 onto the audio timeline.
Next you need to create some text (the lyrics) These can then be put onto the video timeline and you set the duration these are to be displayed.

Repeat the process until you have your finished project.

Save the project as a movie file i.e. in .wmv format.

You can then use the following free application to convert to .mp4:

Simply drag and drop the file into the program, select your output container and away it goes!

Hope this helps!

Just a comment: The video formats that Zen V Plus support are, DivX4/5, XviD5, MPEG-1/2/4SP, and WMV9.
Since you mentioned MP4, be aware that this player doesn't support the current version of MPEG-4, which is AVC (Advanced Video Coding), now commonly known as H.264 (this is what iPod uses).
The MPEG-4SP (simple profile) that the Zen V Plus supports is a very old version of the MPEG-4 build, in fact it's Part 2 --  (H.264 is Part 10).  So I would take Shuboarder's advice and save your project as a .wmv (Windows Media Video), which can achieve the highest quality of the supported video formats.

these answers seem much promising but I didn't had time to test or implement. One software is simply missing. I rewarded the experts with shared points.
Thanks
