    Cool Repeating...

    Hi,

    When someone is repeatedly saying the same thing and we know in advance what he is going to say, we say in French: ""On connait la chanson" (= we know the song).

    Do you have a similar term in English?

    Yup and they're quite similar, B.

    We've heard that same old song time and again.

    Same words different tune.

    Other variations on the same theme.
