Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
Another forced rhyme, but actually one of my all time favorites:

"Roses are red, and violets are purple,
sugar is sweet and so is maple syrple;
I'm the seventh out of seven sons,
My pappy was a pistol,
I'm a 'son of a gun'

I said dang me, dang me;
they oughta take a rope and hang me,
High from the highest tree--
Woman would you weep for me.

A rip pip pip a baa do baa bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbttttt

Roger Miller, a classic of American singers, "Dang Me"
