If they're correct, what's difference between these sentences?

  • Can you help me with that?
  • Can you help me on that?
  • Can you help me about that?

e.g.: I'm trying to find the lyrics of a song and I ask someone if they could help. Which one should I use?

    They are all correct, though the last seems a bit odd. It depends what the context is to determine which preposition to use. If you could write a few examples for what you are looking for it would help, otherwise this is a very broad question. – Peter Feb 14 '16 at 14:11
  • Now you've edited the post, I'd suggest something like can you help me finding it? – Alejandro Feb 14 '16 at 14:44

I'm looking for the lyrics of a song.

Can you help me with (finding) that?

Can you help me find that?
Can you help me look for that?
Could you give me some help on that subject?

You are having trouble with something and would like help in dealing with it
