    Another rhymes-with-self. (Although, I admit, options are limited; queasy? sleazy?)

    Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues
    And you know it don't come easy
    You don't have to shout or leap about
    You can even play them easy

    Several sort of lame-ish rhymes in this one.

    "I smoked my first cigarette at ten
    And for girls, I had a bad yen"

    Reminds me of "Take the Skinheads Bowling" -- after a failed rhyme, they deliberately gave up:
    "Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes
    Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same
    There's not a line that goes here that rhymes with anything"

    Can't believe this one hasn't gotten mentioned yet. I had a hard time not just pasting the entire song because the whole thing is forced rhymes, but I narrowed it down to my three favorites:

    1. When you take a sip
    You buzz like a hornet
    Billy Shakespeare wrote
    A whole bunch of sonnets

    2. There was a good man
    Named Paul Revere
    I feel much better baby
    When you're near

    3. You're the best girl
    That I ever did see
    The great Larry Bird, jersey thirty-three

    Lyrics are so bad it's hard not to respect it.

    Also everything being 'like, yeah' with nothing compared or rhymed.

    This seems to be frequent in a lot of songs now...couldn't come up with a rhyme so just added 'yeah' or 'eh' to the line.

    Dinosaur and Diana Shore :)

    You can find me in a rubbery boat
    Down in Mexico you can send me a note
    Care of a old buffalo singing the dinosaur
    I've played Buffalo, I recall Dinah Shore
    I'm just a buffalo singing the dinosaur blues

    Not one rhyme in this song. He's an MC that makes millions off not rhyming.


    Anything you want girl
    I'll bet you never seen it like this (uh oh, y'all know what this is)
    Just stay up on that floor girl (for all the girls taking)
    And I'll grant all your wishes (amateur strip classes for exercise)
    You know, you know, you know (this one's for you)
    You know, you know, you know
    You hot
    You know, you know, you know
    You hot
    You know, you know, you know
    Especially when you bounce, bounce (we all just taking like a Magic City, Club Rolex)
    I really like it when you bounce, bounce
    I like it when you bounce, bounce (Sue's Rendezvous)
    I like it when you bounce, bounce
    Oh, oh
    Ooh you so nasty
    Amateur pole dancing
    Come and get this cash from me
    They call me rain man
    She tried to rain dance
    Money so long it will drown you girl
    Buried under so much stacks
    They had to pull back about fifty thou
    Before they found ya girl
    I brought book bags of that bankroll
    I'm a D boy, baby they know
    I'm an original D boy
    They go bankrupt if they try to keep up
    No roof on my car but I got mirrors on the ceiling
    I'll spread bread on the bed
    Ever had sex on a million
    Tell me
    Anything you want girl
    I'll bet you never seen it like this
    Just stay up on that floor girl
    And I'll grant all your wishes
    You know, you know, you know
    You hot
    You know, you know, you know
    You hot
    You know, you know, you know
    Especially when you bounce, bounce
    I really like it when you bounce, bounce
    I see money when you bounce, bounce
    I like it when you bounce, bounce
    Oh, oh

    Here's a forced rhyme that has bugged me for years. The Bible has nothing to do with the storyline (from what I can tell), suggesting its only purpose is to provide a convenient rhyme, but it doesn't even do that:

    Rocky Raccoon checked into his room
    Only to find Gideon's Bible
    Rocky had come, equipped with a gun
    To shoot off the legs of his rival

    A non-rhyme annoyance: Rocky burst in, and grinning a grin.

    I owned Limp Bizkit albums. And wore a baseball cap Fred Durst style for quite a few years. I'm not proud of it.

    'Rage' over a bad relationship is about as real as a three dollar bill.

    Bolded is also lyrics from a song on that album.

    Think of Shatner reading these off and it's likely better.

    I did it all for the nookie
    Come on
    The nookie
    Come on
    So you can take that cookie
    And Stick it up your, yeah!
    Stick it up your, yeah!
    Stick it up your, yeah!

    Heard this one the other day. It has several questionable rhymes. But this one is really cringe-worthy.

    "My Girlfriend's run off with my car,
    And gone back to her ma and pa."

    He kind of puts an "r" sound on the end of "ma" and "pa".

    The amount of different rhymes for panderin' he has in this song is pretty impressive.

    The f bomb occurs in this song multiples times. Just a heads up.
