Fig.1. Song Structure

-A song is comprised of Elements which are arranged to give the song variation.

-The Verse and the Chorus are two elements which are the essential foundation of popular music.
The Verse is almost always played before the Chorus.

-The verse and chorus are usually repeated throughout a song.

-The bridge, intro, and coda (also called an “outro”) are usually only used once.

-Some pop songs may have a solo section, particularly in rock or blues influenced pop. During the solo section one or more instruments play a melodic line which may be the melody used by the singer, or, in blues or jazz influenced pop, the solo may be improvised based on the chord progression or Key.

-Again, the Elements of a song’s structure are:
Introduction, Verse, Pre-chorus, Bridge, Middle Eight, Collision, Instrumental Solo & Ad Lib.
