You can never prevent someone from stealing your songs. BUT - you can register the lyrics and music with the US Copyright Office - www.copyright.gov - and then sue for infringement in Federal Court.

Songs are protected by copyright. You can obtain information at: http://www.copyright.gov/ You may also want to discuss filing a copyright application with a Intellectual Property Attorney that can prepare and file the application for you.

Either have an attorney register them or you can try to register them (not recommended) at http://copyright.gov/eco/.
