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.
