* Christian melodic hardcore band Set Free's "Believers" does this quite a bit, rhyming "everyone" with "one", later rhyming "nation" with itself and the final verse having every line end with "for". To be fair, these aren't necessarily supposed to be rhymes, rather than just reusing the word in slightly reworded lines for effect[[note]]this is a very common tactic in hardcore lyrics.[[/note]]...except for the first example, where the words and meanings are quite different.

* "How to Save a Life" by Music/TheFray does this anywhere from two to ''four different times'' depending on what counts: two straight examples, one instance of the whole line being repeated when the same line in the previous verse was two distinct lines, and one coupling of "things" with "everything". For perspective, not counting repeats as distinct the lyrics have 12 chances to rhyme; four of them are RhymingWithItself and two are the [[PainfulRhyme alleged rhymes]] "friend/bitterness" and "night/life".

(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 syllables rhyme while the last ones repeat - say, "smelt it" with "dealt it", and a less successful pass if you repeat only the "A" of an ABAB rhyming scheme (For example, "Take a look at my '''girlfriend''' / She's the only one ''I got'' / Not much of a '''girlfriend''' / I never seem to get ''a lot''").
