Formal structure of "Eleanor Rigby":
Verse 1 0:14-0:31
Verse 2 0:46-1:03
Verse 3 1:31-1:48
Coda (bridge) 2:00-2:05*
Comments: Opens with chorus (instead of introduction), just like  "She Loves You",  "It Won't Be Long",  "Can't Buy Me Love",  "Any Time at All",  "When I Get Home",  "Another Girl",  "You're Going to Lose That Girl", and  "Nowhere Man".
The first bridge does not lead to the chorus, but instead to verse 2. The other Beatles tunes to date that also pull this trick are  "Ask Me Why" (in which the first bridge leads to the second verse, and the second bridge leads to the middle 8 before the third bridge finally resolves to the chorus),  "There's a Place" (in which there is no chorus for the bridge to lead to),  "She Loves You" (in which the first bridge leads to the second verse, but each subsequent bridges leads to the chorus), and  "Got To Get You Into My Life" (in which the first bridge leads to the second verse, but each subsequent bridges leads to the chorus).
The coda consists of the same five melodic notes that conclude the bridge (g, e-flat, b-flat, a, g), but in slightly different rhythm
