Another form that you can use is the AABA form.
Similar to the AAA form, it contains repeated A sections. However, this time there is a B section right before the last A section that acts as a “bridge” section. As you would imagine, the B section is different from the rest.
Typically, the form is 32-bars in length with each section having 8-bars in dedication to it… but that is not a strict rule. The entire length can vary greatly to the shape/flow of your lyrics. The B section, in fact, can be longer or shorter in length compared to the other A sections, or even split into two. Also, the last A section can be stretched couple of extra bars.
Titles and/or hooks should be saved to the beginning or end of the A sections, but it is typically saved for the end of the last A section.
The AABA form can even be expanded using the same principles into an AABABA form.
Take a listen to many songs that utilize this form and see how they creatively craft it to the lyrics.
