Thread Name: worst rhyme ever
Subject: RE: worst rhyme ever
If it's a frivolous or funny song, the more far-fetched and strained the rhyme the better.   A bad rhyme is a rhyme that wastes the chance to do something.

If it's a serious song the rhyme ideally shouldn't even be noticed. A bad rhyme is a rhyme that sticks out as clever the first time you hear it.

As to whether the rhymes themselves are full rhymes, or part rhymes or assonances or whatever, that kind of thing doesn't really matter a monkey's.
