Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
Yeah, snuffy, they could've at least tried to work in a word like "gasket" instead. ;)

Of course, the vocabularily-stumped* would-be rhymer can always fall back on the clever device used by many a troubadour and by Paul Simon in "Mrs. Robinson":

And here's to you, Mrs. Robinson.
Jesus loves you more than you should know
Oh oh oh

What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson?
Joltin Joe has left and gone away
Hey hey hey.

I actually love this song, including that sort of 'cheap rhyme', but it probably only works in a song that's a bit tongue-in-cheek.


*OK, I made that word up. Sue me.
