Intriguing Rhymes

Recommended Posts

What are some of the most clever rhymes you've heard in songs? The ones where you would never have thought to rhyme those two words yourself...

"Well, I'd say something to her

but I get so jealous

When I think of her loving

somebody else." ~ Rick Springfield

"General, General, I gotta ask it ~

with my new uniform, do I get a casket?" ~ Roger Clyne

"Curtain opens, spotlights the gentleman

Signing his love letter best wishes Simpleton

Dialog swam from his pen like pollywogs

He knew better that perfume was gravity

Pulling him closer to what could be tragedy

Love is blind, deaf and dumb, but never mind...

Intermission gave way to a miracle

The birth of an accident grew to a spectacle

That didn't wait, her mother was three weeks late

So Father Mason clutching his crucifix

Baptized the baby in whiskey and licorice

What a lovely way, drowning sins in tooth decay..."

Jellyfish - "New Mistake"

"Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me

And do I take you by the hand

And lead you through the land

And help me understand the best I can

And no one calls us to move on

And no one forces down our eyes

And no one speaks and no one tries

And no one flies around the sun"

...from 'Echoes' ~lyrics by Roger Waters

(more of a strange limerick than an example of clever ryhme)
