I just installed MMA and I cannot see the embedded lyrics.

If I a manually add new lyrics they display, however tracks with lyrics which I entered using MM on Windows do not show on Android.

Other Android players such as Pulsar work. They display these lyrics
SlowFox.

Did you sync the files from MMW to MMA? This will likely be required to see the Lyrics in MMA.

No. I did not sync.

How do I sync?
I just copied the tracks into my phone's SD drive.

Pulsar is accessing the same tracks with standard lyrics format, created by MMW, and it can see the lyrics.

Why can't MMA?

MMA relies on the Android Media Scanner for now, which is limited in what it can pick up from the files metadata. In the future it will have its own scanner at which point this shouldn't be an issue.
