Can I use a repository with text files as a database?

So I’m working on a project that is supposed to discover song lyrics and I need a database. Normally I’d install something like Microsoft SQL Express but I don’t have sufficient permissions so I thought of using a GitHub repository. Is it possible?

Hi there :wave:
Welcome to the community!

I am not aware of any such method of using a GitHub repository in this way. Could you further explain your limitations for using other database management services?
