after they have bloomed, should I cut off the greenery that held the flowers and leave bulbs in the ground to sprout again next spring. I live in the South so no snow or ice occurs in the winter

Let the green turn gold before cutting them off because the energy from the leave will store in the roots bulbs. Some people dig and store them some don't, so its up to you..
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

If you're in zone 6 or higher, daffodils can be left in the ground, they will be fine. I'm not sure why you listed lily bulbs. These are summer bloomers, typically. What kind of lilies are you talking about? All spring flowering bulbs that are planted in the ground in the fall can be left in the ground in zones 6 and higher. These include daffodils, hyacinth, muscari and tulips.

Amended remark; glads usually have to be dug up, iris are left in the ground.
