Yes. But there are any number of verses that are separated by dialogue before the refrain. Plus, it's not the only time a verse has been written after the fact. (One that comes to mind is the verse that Sondheim had supposedly written to go with "Some People," but Merman wouldn't learn it. One that he DID add is the verse to "Good Thing Going" as sung by Gussie in the revised Merrily.)

In any case, the section works as a verse usually would, as a sung intro to set up the refrain.
