Anyone know another song that treats verses and verse repetitions this way? Structure:
Verse 1 (all verses end with refrain line*)
Verse 1 repeat
Verse 2 repeat (plus vamp on refrain line to end song)
And that's it! Now, of course, it's normal for there to be a number of verses and then the first verse repeats toward the end. Wouldn't it have been strange if there had been a third verse with new words after the bridge in this song, though? It would certainly change the character of the song. Repeating the first verse right away indicates that those words are the ones that matter.
The instrumental break after this begins on the dominant chord, just like the bridge had already done, but this is just build, four bars instead of ten, and then...
Well, repeat the second verse, too! Those words matter, too!
* There is no chorus in this song, just a refrain line that appears at the end of each verse.
