    Your favorite Songs which are all verses until the end/fade, when the chorus is played continuously to the end

    Examples, 3 Dog Night's, "Celebrate" and Rod Stewart's "Every Picture Tells A Story"

    More like: "Don't bore us with the chorus", in this case.

    The chorus is "please to meet you.." and it comes up a few times throughout the song.

    I Would have said the chorus is:

    'Cause I'd rather stay here
    With all the madmen
    Than perish with the sad men roaming free
    And I'd rather play here
    With all the madmen
    For I'm quite content they're all as sane as me


    Which is in the song twice. The Zane Zane Zane bit is more of an outro

    none - by definition a chorus occurs at intervals throughout the song.

    everything described here are codas
