Bored? Try a little variety. That was the principle behind chapter twenty-two, where we looked at the verse / verse / chorus / verse / verse / chorus form.
Here, I want to look at another common form — one that also risks boredom: verse / chorus / verse / chorus / verse / chorus. Here's a sample that we'll title “Love Her or Leave Her to Me”:
You're living with a woman you ain't true to Playin' round but keep her hanging on If you don't want her, let me have her You won't believe how fast I'll grab her You'll hardly even notice that she's gone
Love her or leave her to me Keep her or let her go free Don't go two-timing her 'Less you're resigning her Love her or leave her to me
You're out ...
