That's a very clunky sentence. We'd be far more likely to say, "He knew all the words/lyrics of "A Hard Day's Night".

My question is: Would you use curly quotes around “A Hard Day’s Night” and a single straight quote ( ' ) or a single curly quote ( ’ ) to denote the possessive—that is, the apostrophe + s preceding the word lyrics
? 1 or 2 above in terms of typography? Thanks.
