* Roger Miller's "Husbands and Wives" is almost an example, as it consists of the same verse twice, but the first time around, he adds "A woman and a man, a man and a woman / Some can, some can't, [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment and some can]]." BrooksAndDunn's cover plays it straight, since it adds that line both times.

** "Shout to the Lord" is practically a novel compared to some of the songs of the [[http://www.taize.fr/en Taizé Community]]. Check out "Jesus Remember Me" on [[http://www.taize.fr/en_article681.html this page]], for example. As meditation music, they're supposed to be repetitive and somewhat hypnotic to focus the worshipper on prayer.
