Formal structure of  "Help!":
Intro (chorus/ind) 0:00-0:11*
Verse 1 0:11-0:31
Verse 2 0:51-1:11
Verse 3 1:32-1:52
Coda (chorus/ind) 2:10-2:20*
Comments: Very clear structure - no ambiguity.
Introduction is partly based on chorus and partly independent: It shares the same chord progression (reduced in duration by 50%), but the words are independent (not found anywhere else in the song).
Coda functions as an extension of the chorus, but with unrelated musical components.
