I'm making a lyric video and I wanted to know if there's a way to repeat the chorus lyrics and animations without having to do the animation all over again after the next verse?

Thanks in advance

Precompose that section and use multiple instances of the precomposition nested in your main timeline.

So I just duplicate the precomp layer and move it to the marker and it'll move all the components in it as well? Including animation keys?

Sure, but there's always the chance that the tempo of the music changed, meaning that you'd have to re-animate.

Pesky musicians and their tempo changes.....
