If I record the speaking part first, I can then somehow play it back and record the piano track while listening to the voice track to get the timing right.  What I'm doing doesn't really have a beat or rhythm like a song -- it's a dramatic reading, but some of the words have a note or chord to sound along with them so getting it coordinated will be the challenge.

Ah. You can also use Audacity to speed up or slow down a track by small 
amounts, without changing the pitch. This might allow you to make small
adjustments in the speed of the voice recording to help make it fit in
with the music the way you want.

    letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers
