If you don't want it in the lilypond-book file, you don't need to --

Hmm... I'm not certain that I understand exactly what the problem is.
There are three ways to set the size of these songs. Pick one:
1) Inside each song.ly file, include
2) Inside each song.ly file, include
and possibly other things. The advantage to this method is that you
can easily change the settings of everything at once.
3) Inside the everything.lytex file, do this
for all 38 entries. Not recommended. :)
