Formal structure of "She's Leaving Home"
Intro (ind) 0:00-0:05
Verse 1 0:05-0:50*
Verse 2 1:17-2:04
Verse 3a 2:31-2:54*
Coda (chorus) 3:21-3:39
Comments: The verses can be divided into two parts, labeled a and b above. The initial two verses use both halves, but the third and final verse only uses the first half.
It seems to be a trademark of McCartney's 1966-67 songs that they fit quite nicely into three iterations of a combination verse & chorus (or verse & middle 8). In this case, it's three iterations of a verse & chorus, with the final repeat halving the verse, but extended the chorus an extra measure.
