Is there a term for when a song or poem keeps rhyming the same word over and over? Not Rhyming with Itself, but keeping the same rhyme scheme. Anyway, this trope, which Needs a Better Description badly, is when that happens, and to keep the song/poem going, just keeps adding words that rhyme, regardless of how they fit in with the rest of the lyrics.

For example, from The Addams Family The Musical, "Waiting":
''Waiting
Fixating
Debating
Lose weighting
Ice skating
Lacating''
Anyway, help me flesh out this trope, or at least figure out how to describe it.
