After you’ve typed lyrics into the Lyrics window, choose Click Assignment from the Lyrics menu, then click to the left of the first syllable you would like to enter. Click a note to enter the syllable. The next syllable is highlighted in the Lyrics window, indicating the syllable next to be click-assigned (SHIFT+click to assign the syllable to voice 2).
If you OPTION+click a note, Finale will zip through your entire set of lyrics, intelligently distributing them to the notes in the score skipping rests and tied notes, as well as notes in different layers and voice two, for as many notes as there are syllables. (Click Assignment will stop at default whole rests.)
To select this command, you can also click the button in the Lyrics window.
