To break this to where even the beginner music composer will understand, a verse is a composed set of music and words that functions as introductory material to a song, lyrically setting up the story.

The chorus is the segment where your melody and lyrics are repeated. This is usually the part of the song that everyone seems to know the words to and often the part they sing along to.
