You better use Audacity, which is free
You have thhe possibility to stop playing, note the exact place, then select the part you want to delete and then use Edition, REmove audio and labels, Cut and join (my version is french then it's not exactly the terms)
While Chris' method is the most elegant, note that you can accomplish the same thing strictly in PSP:
1. In the "Timeline" view of PSP, place--drag--the original piece wherever you want it to start.
2. Make several copies of that original, placing them, end-to-end, after the original.
3. Play and move the ending point of the original segment to the first point you want to break that selection.
4. In the 1st copy of the piece, move the starting point--from the beginning of the piece to the place where you want to start the next "word".
5. Next, grab the (now shortened) 1st copy, and slide it to abut the end of the (shortened) original segment.
6. Move the ending point of the first copy to the desired place, slide the starting point of the next (second) copy to the appropriate place, and slide that segment to abut the 1st copy.
I know it sounds confusing, but actually you're just taking a song, making several copies of it, cutting those copies to produce just the short sound segments you need, and then placing them end-to-end to create your finished piece.
The shortcoming of this method with respect to what Audacity can do, is that they do not remain together if you have to slide one or more segments earlier/later in your show. This would require you to adjust ("realign") all of them. Audacity, as Chris points out, would allow you to actually make a single, edited selection. But, at least the all-PSP method is a quick, easily usable tool. Oh yes, and all the segments are fully recoverable (i.e., the entire song is still available for every segment) if you later change your mind.
