* TheRockyHorrorPictureShow opens with ''Science Fiction - Double Feature'' with lyrics about classic SF movies, and ends (in some prints) with the reprise version (with very similar lyrics) that summarizes the events in the film/play.

* In "Wait For It" in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', the first, second, and fourth choruses are all almost the same with minor alterations (the third chorus, with Burr singing about Hamilton, is completely different):

* In "Wait For It" in ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', the first, second, and fourth choruses are all almost the same with minor alterations (the third chorus, with Burr singing about Hamilton, is completely different):
** The first chorus has 'Love doesn't discriminate', but the second changes to 'Death doesn't discriminate', which the fourth chorus sticks to.
** Similarly, the first chorus has 'We laugh and we cry and we break and we make our mistakes', while that changes to 'We rise and we fall and we break and we make our mistakes' in the second and fourth.
** The first chorus has 'If there's a reason I'm by her side / when so many have tried', the second has 'If there's a reason I'm still alive / when everyone who loves me has died', and the fourth changes it again this time with 'If there's a reason I'm still alive / when so many have died'.

* Stromkern do this a lot. The choruses of "Feed the Machine" and "Stand Up" are altered each time they are sung. They also performed a cover of NickCave's "The Mercy Seat", elsewhere noted for invoking this trope.

** Similarly, the third chorus of "I Still Like Bologna" changes "the sound of a whippoorwhill down a country road" to "…a Chevelle headin' down a gravel road".

Added DiffLines:

* In the folk song "Diamantina Drover", the drover describes how hard the road is getting, but says he "won't be back 'til the droving's done". In the final chorus, he's been going for so long that he now thinks he "won't be back ''when'' the droving's done".

Added DiffLines:

* Gloriana's "Trouble" has a chorus that begins "If you're running around, you better run from me / Pack up your bags and get gone, get gone". The third time around, "pack up your bags" becomes "pack up your [[PrecisionFStrike shit]]" which was obviously {{Bowdlerise}}d back to "bags" on the radio edit.

* Music/MaximumTheHormone's ''[[DeathNote What's up, People?!]]'' has several sections of "HEY HEY! Ningen sanka ai nige ningen fuan ka?", which is what the lyric sheet in the single says. Except the last time they say it, where it's written like what English speakers would certainly hear.

Added DiffLines:

* During live versions of "Michael" from Music/FranzFerdinand's [[Music/FranzFerdinand2004 debut album]], Alex Kapranos often replaces "''Come and dance with me''" with "''Come all over me''" live. He also replaces "''Stubble on my sticky lips''" with "''Stubble on my sticky hips''". Slightly more sexy.

* In "Grandpa’s Advice" by Adie Grey and Dave MacKenzie, the first two iterations of the chorus express Grandpa's opinion that, when driving, it's best to assume all the other drivers on the road are "half asleep or stoned". The last iteration, in which the narrator is passing on Grandpa's advice to her own children, switches this to "drunk or on the phone": a timely update.
