** Although at least those lines also include the internal rhymes "bad"/"sad" and "heart"/"start". (And later, "skin"/"begin" in the same place.)

* Zeehas; 12 Wait's "Destination" rhymes "feel" with itself four times in a row - this might be to deliberate effect, because it's also a straightforward and [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment overly redundant]] passage in the middle of a song otherwise full of WordSaladLyrics:
--> I'm upset that none of you know how I feel
--> It really bothers me that nobody knows how I feel
-->Know how I feel?
-->No one ever really knows just how I feel.

Who hangs with ''[[Creator/BenjaminFranklin B. Franks]]''\\
Giving ladies ''beef franks!''

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Theatre/{{Hamilton}}'', this is first used in "Satisfied" in order to actually communicate the DoubleEntendre Hamilton's making, though it's not too painful with the addition of an extra internal rhyme as well:
-->'''Hamilton:''' You strike me as a woman who has never been satisfied.
-->'''Angelica:''' I'm sure I don't know what you mean, you forget yourself.
-->'''Hamilton:''' You're like me, I have never been satisfied.
-->'''Angelica:''' Is that right?
-->'''Hamilton:''' I'm never satisfied.
** However, outside of this instance, the trope is actually used for thematic dramatic effect: Hamilton, who can talk a mile a minute and rap faster and with greater complexity than almost anyone else in the show, is reduced to self-rhymes when he's too full of emotion for his son, first in [[ParentalLoveSong "Dear Theodosia"]]:
-->Oh, Phillip, when you smile I am undone
-->My son
-->Look at my son!
-->Pride is not the word I'm looking for
-->There is so much more inside me now!
** ...and then, much more heart-breakingly in [[GriefSong "It's Quiet Uptown"]]:
-->Phillip, you would like it uptown
-->It's quiet uptown
** Which might even be extended to "Tomorrow There'll be More Of Us", as this is the only not fully sung scene in the entire musical, as though with the shocking revelation of [[spoiler:Laurens' death]] he briefly lost the ability to sing altogether.

(except in HipHop, where rhyming something with itself is considered the mark of a talentless rapper), it can still cause a listener to pause and wonder what just happened. It's worth mentioning that English is a fairly difficult language to rhyme in, compared with, say, French or Spanish. Nonetheless, you'll generally get a pass if the penultimate syllable is what you're rhyming - say, "smelt it" with "dealt it".
