Some efforts formalizing scholarly interpretations of lyrics (and other literary texts) you'll find as soon as 1976. Cf.

Meggle, Georg / Manfred Beetz 1976: Interpretationstheorie und Interpretationspraxis. Kronberg/Ts. (Wissenschaftstheorie und Grundlagenforschung 3)

If such efforts tend to fail analyzing extant interpretations that's not the analyzer's fault, but caused by the lack of interpreter's rationality, isn't it?

Apart from the example requested by Martin and Desmond I'm very interested in a debate detailing the cons against the use of an argument? & belief system to model scholarly literary communications.

Greetings, Herbert
