* Tony Iommi and Phil Anselmo wrote a song called "Inversion Of The Saviors" for the latter's album ''Iommi'', but ultimately a different Iommi/Anselmo collaboration ended up on the album instead. Anselmo reused a small portion of the lyrics in the {{Music/Down}} song "Steeple".

* ''Theatre/AnnieGetYourGun'' had a CutSong titled "Something Bad's Gonna Happen," which had in the second part of its chorus: "I can hear people singing though there's no one there / I smell orange blossoms through the trees are bare." The same lines, minus a few syllables, became the germ of "You're Just In Love" from ''Call Me Madam''.

** "Little Drum Machine Boy" and "Hot Wax" both feature the lyric "I get down, I get down, I get down all the way" delivered in roughly the same cadence as "Jingle Bells". It made more sense for him to reference a Christmas standard in the former, since it was released as part of Christmas benefit album ''Just Say Noel''.

He would also later reuse a lyric about "making gentlemen cry" for "Hollywood Freaks".

* Music/WASP's album ''The Headless Children'' contains a B-side entitled "For Whom the Bell Tolls." Some of the lyrics and the melody would later form the basis of "The Gypsy Meets the Boy" from ''The Crimson Idol''.

* Music/{{Rancid}} does this. "As One" from their 1994 SelfTitledAlbum and "Things to Come" from 1998's ''Life Wont Wait'' both open with the almost identical lines "War between races / War between lies / War between something that (lays out / was) deep inside."

* Music/FunLovinCriminals recorded their first demo track in 1995, "King Of New York". Only the chorus was reused in their 1996 hit of the same name, with the music and verses being entirely different. However, the verse line 'I'm the firehose, and everybody knows' was reused in "Mini Bar Blues" in 1998.
* Music/NewRadicals "Mother We Just Can't Get Enough" features some additional lyrics in the booklet - "I know I deceived you, I once told you lies, if you don't believe me, just look in my eyes". These formed part of "A Love Like That" a song frontman Gregg Alexander released as a download a few years later.
** The Gregg Alexander demo track "You're Beautiful (Like No One Before)" leaked in the 2000s, and was rewritten into "Intimidated By You" for the "Begin Again" soundtrack.

* Music/{{Pixies}} recycle 'A white moon's hot, the other side's not' from "Brick Is Red" for 'when one side's hot, the other side of the moon is not' in "All Over The World", two albums later. And the chorus from early versions of "Subbacultcha" (We're having fu-un!) was recycled for "Distance Equals Rate Times Time"[[note]]which is a line from Space (I Believe In) - "now it occurred to me as he drove away, D equals R times T[[/note]] (from looking into the su-un!).
