You are confusing LilyPond, since you try to instantiate the Lyrics contexts within the Staff context. I know that it feels nonintuitive to some people that the lyrics is not part of the staff, but that's how it's done in LilyPond. Just replace your score
block with something like:

\score {
   \context Staff = cStaff {
       \clef G
       \time 4/4
       \context Voice = cVStaffAARef \StaffARef
       \context Voice = cStaffAACpl \StaffACpl
   \context Lyrics = cLStaffARef \lyricsto cVStaffAARef \StaffATextRef
   \context Lyrics = cStaffAA \lyricsto cStaffAACpl \StaffATextA
   \context Lyrics = cStaffAB \lyricsto cStaffAACpl \StaffATextB
   \context Lyrics = cStaffAC \lyricsto cStaffAACpl \StaffATextC

Note also that you have a very old version of LilyPond. I recommend you to
upgrade to version 2.8 or the next stable version 2.10 that should be released
very soon.

You can find attached a typical example of a song with a 'refrain' and same verses. But I don't understand why Lilypond shows me the following error message during the processing:

GNU LilyPond 2.6.3

Interprétation en cours de la musique...[8]
erreur de programmation: moving backwards in time

and why it adds two empty bars between the 'refrain' and the verses as you can see in the pdf file.

Could you explain me what I do wrong or... if it is, maybe, a bug ?

Thanks in advance
P. Meigniez

P.S.: To have a 'correct' printout, I had to add artificially a note in the 'refrain'. By example, by replacing the last rest by a c.
