->'''Binky:''' People think I can't write a poem,
->But they are so wrong, I CAN write a poem.
->I wrote this one, I wrote this poem,
->And I gave it the title "Binky's Poem".
->So SHUT UP! The end!
->'''Muffy:''' That's not a poem. He rhymed "poem" with "poem" four times!
-->-- ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', "I'm a Poet"

ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. This is when a songwriter or poet rhymes a word with itself. Perhaps the writer couldn't think of a better word (writing is hard work, after all) or perhaps the writer was just feeling lazy that day. Whatever the reason, they took the easy way out and simply repeated a word when they needed a rhyme. Sometimes, this is used to be clever, by showing the different meaning one word can have in different contexts. And in some cases, [[RuleOfFunny it's just done for the sake of comedy]].

While a repeated rhyme isn't generally as cringe-worthy as its sister trope, the PainfulRhyme
(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'''''").

Note that this trope doesn't really apply to a repetitive chorus, in which the same line is repeated over and over again.



* The jingle for Education Connection (basically an online directory of colleges) does this right from the beginning:
--> Feels like my life's passing me by
--> With the cash I'm making, I'll never get by
* Not ''exactly'' rhyming with itself, but the Chicken Of the Sea jingle rhymes homonyms:
--> Ask any mermaid you happen to see
--> What's the best tuna? Chicken Of the Sea!
* The Chuck E. Cheese's jingle "Follow Me To Fun" contains these lines:
--> Pick your partner, pick your game.
--> Every token plays one game.

* Creator/BrianPosehn in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chiVMrWMHko Metal By Numbers]]:
-->We're coming to the end of the first verse
-->Then comes the breakdown, a pretty chorus and then the second verse
-->I know I just rhymed "verse" with "verse"
-->That's because [[HeavyMeta I'm so metal]], [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch bitch]], where's your fucking purse?

* Some authors end up in this position when writing for a character that in canon RhymesOnADime. Sometimes they'll just have the character involved wince appropriately.
* ''[[FanFic/EakinsHardReset Hard Reset]]'' has Twilight failing at a metaphor. Her excuse?
-->When I try to turn a phrase it usually ends up in an impossible, non-euclidean shape. I’ve always been that way. In fact a former tutor of mine, during a moment of frustration after I tried to rhyme the word “pony” with itself four times in a single stanza, once told me he was revoking my poetic license.
* The player-created lyrics to the Ode to Booze in ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' end by rhyming "weak" with "week". In his recording, [=KoL=]'s creator Jick quipped that the rhyme was, indeed, "[[{{Pun}} pretty weak]]".

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', when the gargoyles are encouraging Quasimodo:
--> She will discover, guy
--> You're one heck of a guy
* In the theme song to the animated film ''WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius'', Music/BowlingForSoup rhyme "time" with "time" (in the chorus lyrics "We've got to save the Earth and get to school on time/So many things to do and not much time!") three separate times.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSwanPrincess'':
** The opening song rhymes "seasick" and "be sick".
** The sequel has the song "That's What You Do for a Friend" which rhymes "friend" with "friend" ''over and over''.
* The cast of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' had a version of "Twelve Days of Christmas" that goes "My true love gave to me / a fire-breathing dragon just for me!"
-->'''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick''': Shh, did you hear that? That was the sound of your IQ dropping.
* Used multiple times in the ''Disney/{{Moana}}'' score:
** "Where You Are" rhymes "leaves" (the noun that grows on trees) with "leaves" (the verb).
** "Where You Are" also rhymes "inside" with "inside" two separate times (the first time referring to "the water sweet inside" and "meat inside" coconuts).
** "How Far I'll Go" starts by rhyming "water/daughter/water".
** The second verse twice uses 3 lines in a row ending with the word "island".
** "Shiny" rhymes "anything that glitters" with "thing that glitters" (and also "beginners").

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* In ''Film/WagTheDog'', Johnny Dean is trying to come up with a theme song for the war, and says that it's hard to rhyme things with "Albania". Stanley says that it's not his fault and that's just the name of the country, and Johnny sings "Albania, Albania", which satisfies Stanley.
* Soundgarden's Live to Rise that plays during the end credits of ''Film/TheAvengers2012'' rhymes "again" and "again," and "face" and "face."
* ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'' has an opening song that constantly rhymes "you" with "you." This is by Music/ChrisCornell, the same person who wrote the end credits music for ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''.
* "Imagination" is rhymed with itself in the opening lines of [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory "Pure Imagination"]].
* "Big House" from ''Film/MuppetsMostWanted'' rhymes "the perfect getaway" with "you'll never get away".
* [[Film/{{Arthur}} "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)"]] rhymes "time" with itself in two consecutive lines: "Living his life one day at a time/He's showing himself a really good time". It's easy to miss this because there's no real pause between the lines and for that matter the next one, which isn't meant to rhyme.

* The actual last piece of original material in the seventy-three-book ''Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures'' is a song with a certain amount of this. Way to be, Fitz. All the rhyming lines rhyme with each other, and two lines end with the word "true", two with "do", two with "you", one with "too" and one with "to". Also, there's an "oh so true" in there.
* From Eeyore's poem in ''[[Literature/WinnieThePooh The House at Pooh Corner]]'':
-->''(I haven't got a rhyme for that "is" in the second line yet.''
--> ''Bother.)''
-->''(Now I haven't got a rhyme for "bother". Bother.)''
-->Those two "bother"s will have to rhyme with each other.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* Conan O'Brien's "Thursday", a parody of Rebecca Black's "Friday", featured a rapper with the following lyrics:
-->Why is there a rapper here?
-->Why exactly am I here?
-->Did I just rhyme "here" with "here"?
-->I am getting out of here!
* In ''Series/TheGoldenGirls'' episode "Big Daddy's Little Lady," Rose and Dorothy are trying to come up with Miami's new theme song in order to win a contest. The intro to one of their attempts claims that ''M-I-A-M-I spells 'Miami Beach'!'' When Blanche points out that it...really doesn't:
-->'''Rose:''' "I told you not to add 'beach'!"
-->'''Dorothy:''' "Oh, fine! Fine. You find something to rhyme with 'Miami,' hotshot."
-->'''Rose:''' "Mammy! Whammy, clammy, Alabam-y, hootenanny, salami!"
-->'''Dorothy:''' "'Hootenanny' is marginal, and I ''refuse'' to accept 'salami'."
* Joanie lampshades it in ''Series/HappyDays'' while she and Chachi are trying to write a song together. She's sarcastic when she doesn't like his lyrics.
-->'''Joanie:''' "Really good. I like the way you rhymed ''shout'' with ''shout''."
-->'''Chachi:''' "Well, what do you want? ''Get out''?"
* Jez's poem "Fuck You Bush" on ''PeepShow'':
-->Fuck you, Bush
-->It's time to get out of Iraq, Bush
-->What were you even doing there in the first place, Bush?
-->You didn't even get properly elected, Bush
-->Are you happy now, Bush?
-->Fuck you, Bush

* Childish Gambino does the "different meaning, same word" version of this in one song, and then quickly explains it.
--> I like pink, it always looks good on me.
--> And I like pink, it always looks good on me.
--> That second part, I was talking about vagina, homie.
* Except for "door"/"more" in the chorus and "do"/"you" in one of the verses, ''every'' rhyme in "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) by The Proclaimers is either "miles", "you", or "gonna be" rhymed with itself.
* Music/{{Journey}} does this a lot. "Don't Stop Believin'" rhymes "anywhere" with "anywhere" and "night" with "night." "Lights" rhymes "city" with "city," but, in its defense, it doesn't have any ''real'' rhymes in it, so maybe they just weren't trying.
* Music/{{Eminem}} is guilty of this at times:
** "Still Don't Give A Fuck":
-->Got your girl on my arm and I'm armed with a firearm
-->So big my entire arm's like a giant firearm.
** Also:
--->Now this looks like a job [[Music/{{Eminem}} for me]]\\
So everybody, just follow me\\
'Cause we need a little, controversy\\
'Cause it feels so empty, without me.
*** Given that rappers tend to rhyme multiple syllables at a time, this example's debatable. There's a semi-rhyme between the "o" in "job", and the first "o" in "follow", so he's effectively rhyming "'''jo'''b for '''me'''" with "'''fo'''llow '''me'''".
** There's "The Way I Am" too, but it might be actually intentional:
--->'Cause I am whatever they say I am\\
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?\\
In the paper, the news, everyday I am\\
I don't know, it's just the way I am
* {{Music/Madonna}}'s "Vogue":
-->Don't just stand there
-->Let's get '''to it'''
-->Strike a pose
-->There's nothing '''to it'''
* Music/TheBeatles rhymed "better" with "better" in the otherwise excellent "Hey Jude":
-->Hey, Jude, don't make it bad/Take a sad song and make it better/Remember to let her into your heart/and you can start to make it better.
** And then:
-->Better, better, [[OverlyLongGag better, better]], [[CrossesTheLineTwice better, better]], [[BigYes YEEAAAAAHHH!!!!]]
** In "I've Just Seen A Face", they rhyme "met" with "met".
** As noted by internet celebrity Music/JonathanCoulton, Music/PaulMcCartney is the only person on earth who could make the rhyme "love you forever/and forever" sound sweet and endearing instead of ridiculous.
* Music/TheDoors rhymed "fire" with "fire" on "Light My Fire."
* Music/BlackSabbath rhymed "masses" with "masses" on the otherwise great ''"War Pigs," although they did use two different meanings for "masses"
* Music/CoheedAndCambria does this with "21:13", the hidden song on their second album, when they rhyme "all" with "all".
* Music/TheBlackEyedPeas rhyme a word with its plural in ''"Where Is The Love"'':
-->What's wrong with the world, Mama?
-->People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
** In "Meet Me Halfway", apl.de.ap rhymes "uptown" with "downtown".
** In will.i.am and Music/JustinBieber's "#[=ThatPower=]"
-->''will.i.am'': Used to have a piggy bank.
-->Now I got that bigger bank.
* "Pass the Mic" by the Music/BeastieBoys:
-->Well, everybody rappin' like it's a commercial
-->Actin' like life is a big commercial.
** Although it was originally supposed to be "actin' like life is a big ''rehearsal''"; Mike D accidentally said "commercial" twice and they left it in.
** The ''Ill Communication'' B-side "The Vibes" rhymes "Les [=McCan=]" with "Les [=McCan=]", which is so blatant one can only assume it's intentional.
-->I kick out the jams and tell you who I am
-->I'll make you shake your ass like Les [=McCan=]
-->And then you're out talking shit like Yosemite Sam
-->You've got the elephant feet like Les [=McCan=]
** "Get It Together" has [[Music/ATribeCalledQuest Q-Tip]] doing this during his guest appearance and immediately doing some LampshadeHanging:
-->I eat the fuckin' pineapple Now & Laters
-->Listen to me now, don't listen to me later
-->Fuck it, 'cause I know I didn't make it fuckin' rhyme for real
-->But, yo, technically, I'm hard as steel
* "Breakfast In America" by Music/{{Supertramp}} contains a line that rhymes "girlfriend" with "girlfriend."
* Music/AvrilLavigne used the "girlfriend/girlfriend" rhyme too. Guess what song that's in?
* In "Deadbolt" (an excellent song despite this), Music/{{Thrice}}, who are typically lyrical masters, rhyme "poison" with itself:
--> You call from the streets.
--> "Darling, you don't know, the water is poisoned."
--> And I say, "Come on and give me my poison!"
** That being said, it might not count completely as it's two different uses of "poison", with the first being a participle and the second being a noun.
** Thrice also does this with "you" in "A Song for Milly Michaelson":
--> Well, you know I hardly speak.
--> When I do, it's just for you.
--> I haven't said a word in weeks,
--> 'Cause they've been keeping me from you.
* "No Scrubs" by TLC prominently rhymes the word "me" with itself.
--> I don't want no scrub
--> A scrub is a guy who can't get no love from *me*
--> Hangin' on the passenger side of his best friend's ride
--> Trying to holler at *me*
* "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by DeepBlueSomething rhymes "The world has come between us" and "Our life has come between us" possibly to avoid having to talk about [[http://blogs.herald.com/dave_barrys_blog/2006/01/breaking_update.html something that rhymes with "between us" and starts with P]].
* Played with, but cleverly averted, in Randy Travis' "Better Class of Losers,", which rhymes "sweet" and "suite," a very rare example of using homophones as rhymes.
** Another homophone rhyme: "Me and You" by Kenny Chesney rhymes "too" and "to" in the chorus.
** And a rather clever one in The Notorious B.I.G.'s "What's Beef", which rhymes "I see you" with "ICU".
* Music/{{Train}}'s "Meet Virginia" does this ''four times'', with "beautiful," "president," and "unusual" in the verses, and "life" in the chorus. (Technically, they also rhyme "queen" with itself in one refrain, but because of the rhyme scheme it's not as noticeable.)
** Regarding the "Life" rhyme, its worth noting that the song rhymes "life" twice in 4 lines.
--->Well she wants to live her life
--->Then she thinks about her life
--->Pulls her hair back as she screams
--->"I don't really want to live this life"
* Music/LimpBizkit's "Rollin'" rhymes "here" with "here"
** They do it again on the first track of their ''Golden Cobra'' album, rhyming "this" with "this".
--->'''Pat's Metal Reviews:''' Everyone who ever tried to tell me Fred Durst is a good songwriter, I'd just like to point this out: he can't think of a rhyme for ''"this"''.
* Music/{{Coldplay}}'s "Everything's Not Lost" rhymes "lost" with "lost."
* "[[LongTitle It Was an Absolutely, Finger-Lickin', Grits and Chicken, Country Music Love Song]]" by Bomshel uses "song/along/song/song" as a rhyme in the chorus. This is a rare two-for-one, as it uses both a {{StockRhyme|s}} (song/along) and a Rhyming With Itself based on the same word.
* Jessica Harp's "Boy Like Me" rhymes "with me" with the title.
* "If You've Got the Money" by Lefty Frizzell, later covered by Music/WillieNelson, rhymes "time" with itself in the chorus ''and'' second verse.
* "Perfect Insanity" by Music/{{Disturbed}} once rhymes "mind" with itself.
* "Some Things Are Meant to Be" by Linda Davis does this with "for you" right off the bat.
* Music/TaylorSwift's "You Belong with Me" rhymes "like I do" with, "like I do", and later, "than that" and "like that".
* The second verse of "I Wonder" by Kellie Pickler rhymes "like mothers do" with itself.
* "The Seashores of Old Mexico," first recorded by Music/MerleHaggard and covered by Music/GeorgeStrait gets it out of the way in the first line, which rhymes "in mind" with itself.
* Another Music/GeorgeStrait with an example is "Troubadour", whose second verse rhymes "mirror" with "mirror".
* Music/FingerEleven's "One Thing" rhymes "thing" with "thing" twice, "time" with "time" once, and then goes on a Rhyming Rampage when it begins to rhyme "know" with "know" no less than nine times. This might make ''One Thing'' the ultimate example of this trope.
* Flirted with in "The Bride" by Trick Pony, which rhymes "pretty thing" and "anything."
* Music/{{Abba}}'s "The Winner Takes It All" rhymes "plain" with "complain," which may not ''technically'' be a Rhyming With Itself, but it has the same feel to it.
** And don't forget "S.O.S." where the two couplets in the chorus not only rhyme "on" with itself but also share almost all the same words.
--> When you're gone
--> How can I even try to go on?
--> When you're gone
--> Though I try how can I carry on?
* [[AntiLoveSong "My Heart Is Full Of Hatred And Loathing"]] from ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow'':
-->Like I said, I hate you jerks.\\
What a bunch of stupid jerks.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic naturally parodied this in "Trapped in the Drive-Thru", a parody of Music/RKelly's "Music/TrappedInTheCloset", in which he rhymes "Door" with itself several times, and later rhymes "drive-thru" with itself for ''eight lines in a row''.
* Used for humorous effect in an entire verse of Music/FlightOfTheConchords' "Hurt Feelings":
-->I call my friends, say "let's go into town"
-->But they're all too busy to go into town
-->So I go by myself, I go into town
-->Then I see all my friends... they're all in town
* Done by Manowar on their song "God or Man".
--> I arrive, a stranger in this land
--> And those who seek me, their blood will wash the land
* Music/{{Morrissey}}'s catchy-weird "The More You Ignore Me The Closer I Get":
-->''I will be in the bar''
-->''With my head on the bar''
* Music/KidRock's "All Summer Long":
-->''We were trying different things''
-->''We were smoking funny things''
* The verses of Music/MoxyFruvous's "Kids Song" are limericks. The first two have pretty brutal rhymes (toxic/dioxic/dog sick), and then the third one has:
-->''Hello, I'm Gabby and I just got here from Chile''\\
''I like Canada, except that it is chilly''\\
''I met Premier Bob Rae, and he ain't no Pinochet''\\
''My mother makes a spicy bowl of chili'' [[LampshadeHanging three rhymes]]!!\\
'''Other band members:''' Grr.
* Music/TheClash rhyme "sound" with "sound" in "Rock the Casbah".
** And from the same album, "Straight to Hell" rhymes "here" with itself, among non-rhymes and repeated lines.
* "Always" by Saliva has this line:
-->I feel like you don't want me around
-->I guess I'll pack all my things
-->I guess I'll see you around
* In DJ Format's "[[http://keithschofield.com/djformat-video/ 3 Feet Deep]]", guest rapper D-Sisive does this deliberately for an internal rhyme: "And I can win a mic fight by using the same line twice / Ripping me is like a mic fight"
* [[VideoGame/RobotUnicornAttack "Always"]] by Music/{{Erasure}} rhymes "open" with itself in the first verse.
-->Open your eyes, I see\\
Your eyes are open.\\
Wear no disguise for me.\\
Come into the open.
* Music/GreenDay's song "Longview" rhymes three times:
-->I got no motivation\\
Where is my motivation?\\
No time for motivation\\
Smoking my inspiration
* The Music/{{Nirvana}} song "You Know You're Right": "No thought was put into this/I always knew it would come to this". This was a replacement for the original take of the song, where the second line was "I'm walking in the piss".
* "How to Save a Life" by Music/TheFray does this anywhere from three to ''five different times'' depending on what counts: three 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".
* Music/TheWhiteStripes' "The Hardest Button to Button" has this masterful rhyme:
-->I've got a backyard\\
With nothin' in it\\
Except a stick, a dog,\\
And a box with somethin' in it.
* Part of the refrain of "Between The Lines" by Music/StoneTemplePilots: "You always were my favorite drug/ Even when we used to take drugs"
* As shown on TheSoCalledCoward page, the first verse of "The Coward of the County" rhymes "wrong" with itself.
* As pointed out in WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows' review, "Break Up" by Mario featuring Gucci Mane and Sean Garrett rhymes "model" with "model", much to his [[{{Angrish}} incoherent rage]].
** Todd's very first episode, Jay Sean's "Down", had to point out this rhyme:
-->Baby are you down, down, down, down, down? (down, down)\\
Even if the sky is falling '''down'''
* Rapper Music/JuelzSantana abuses the living hell out of this trope. Here's an example:
--> "Yeah, but I be right back at ya, twice back at ya, like Christ back at ya, yeah!
-->You be like damn, that’s one nice ass rapper,
-->I kind of like that rapper, I want to be like that rapper, (no!)
-->No, but if you bite that rapper,
-->I might bite back at you, with that rifle at ya"
* Music/{{Xzibit}} does this on "Multiply":
-->I got a sixth sense, that tells me you ain't worth six cents,
-->I'm sick with my sixth sense.
* Shows up in the first verse of "The Cat Came Back":
-->He tried and he tried to give the cat away;
-->He gave it to a man going far, far away.
* "Black and Gold" by Sam Sparro has this little gem. Granted, he is talking about two different "matters", but still:
-->'Cuz if you're not really here
-->Then the stars don't even matter
-->Now I'm filled to the top with fear
-->That it's all just a bunch of matter
** He's actually saying "natter" in the second B line, which basically means "small talk".
*** It sounds like "matter" in the song. And it makes sense in context that he's "filled to the top with fear that [the universe] is just a bunch of matter."
* In Music/{{Beyonce}}'s verse on Music/LadyGaga's "Telephone", she rhymes "faster," with "faster," and then with "''faster''."
* Music/DefLeppard's "Hysteria":
--> I want to know tonight
--> If you're alone tonight
* Music/SonataArctica rhymes "seeing" with itself in the full version of "Everything Fades to Gray".
* Music/TheMagneticFields pull off a sneaky one in "I Don't Believe You":
-->So you're brilliant, gorgeous &
-->Ampersand after ampersand
* Music/DavidBowie's "Kooks":
--> We bought a lot of things to keep you warm and dry
--> A funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
** Also, in "Heroes":
-->I, I wish you could swim
-->Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
* Rick Ross in a lot of his songs, but especially in "(Everyday I'm) Hustlin":
-->I'm in the distribution, I'm like Atlantic\\
I got them motherfuckers flyin' 'cross the Atlantic\\
I know Pablo, Noriega\\
The real Noriega, he owe me a hundred favors.
** As well as:
--->We never steal cars, but we deal hard\\
Whip it real hard whip it whip it real hard\\
I caught a charge,(yeah) I caught a charge\\
Whip it real hard, whip it whip it real hard.
** And one that can lead to hysterical laughter on first hearing:
--->Don't tote no twenty-twos, Magnum cost me twenty-two\\
Sat it on them twenty-twos, birds go for twenty-two\\
Lil' mama super thick, she say she twenty-two\\
She seen them twenty-twos, we in room two twenty-two.
*** Yes, he did just rhyme the same word 7 times. So then to end the song, he does this:
--->In the M-I-A-YO them niggaz rich off that Yayo\\
Steady slangin' Yayo, my Chevy bangin' Yayo.
* Music/TheKinks' "Lola":
--> Well, I'd left home just a week before
--> and I'd never, ever kissed a woman before
--> but Lola smiled and took me by the hand
--> said "Little boy, gonna make you a man."
--> Well, I'm not the world's most masculine man
--> but I know what I am, and I'm glad I'm a man
** Music/WeirdAlYankovic's parody, "Yoda":
--> Well, I'd left home just a week before
--> and I'd never, ever been a Jedi before
* "Jingle Bell Rock", at least the original by Bobby Helms, rhymes "Giddyup, jingle horse, pick up your feet" with "Mix and mingle in the jinglin' feet", even though the latter makes no sense. Many covers change it to the more logical "jinglin' beat".
* Robby Roadsteamer's "Heart Of A Rhino":
-->I've got the mind of [[GratuitousNinja a ninja]]
-->And the strength of a thousand... ninjas?
* Music/{{Drake}} rhymes "mafucka" with itself 5 times in the remix to Music/KanyeWest's "All of the Lights"
** He also lets The Weeknd rhyme "Poland" and "C4" with themselves in "Crew Love"
** Justified when he repeats a whole line in RickRoss's "Stay Schemin'", which he does for emphasis (Ross joins him). Said line "Bitch you wasn't with me shootin' in the gym" became one of the rap memes of the year.
* Music/DonWilliams' "Tulsa Time" rhymes "time" with itself several times.
* "Mr. Knowitall" by Primus does this and [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] it:
-->They call me Mr. Knowitall - I am so eloquent
-->[[MetaphorIsMyMiddleName Perfection is my middle name]] and whatever rhymes with eloquent
* Shakira, in the chorus of the Spanish version of "Whenever, wherever" manages to rhyme "vida" with itself three times in a row:
-->Contigo, mi vida / quiero vivir la vida\\
Lo que me queda de vida / lo quiero vivir contigo.
** The redundancy is especially grating because ''the second couplet essentially means the same as the first''.
* "Stuck in the Middle With You" by Stealers Wheel rhymes "make some sense of it all" with "makes no sense at all".
* The final verse of Music/BritneySpears' "Toxic" manages to rhyme now four times in a row and that's before it repeats itself.
-->Intoxicate me now / with your lovin' now / I think I'm ready now / I think I'm ready now
* "Alone Again (Naturally)" by GilbertOSullivan rhymes "myself" with "myself" in the first verse. (In the rest of the verses there are legitimate rhymes in that position - cried/died, to/do - so it was intentional.)
* Young Jeezy's "My President Is Black" has a bizarre example: it rhymes "New Orleans" with itself, but ''uses two different pronounciations''.
* Music/{{Queen}}'s "Who Wants to Live Forever" rhymes "us" with "us" no less than six times over the span of three verses.
* "One Is the Loneliest Number" by Three Dog Night:
-->''Two can be as bad as '''one''''',
-->''It's the loneliest number since the number '''one'''''.
* America's "Sandman" (not to be confused with with the Chordates song "''Mr.'' Sandman") rhymes "man" with "sandman" in its chorus.
* Swedish pop star Eric Saade's single "Popular" presents us with this little gem:
-->''Stop, don't say that it's impossible,''
-->'' 'Cause, I know, it's possible.''
* Music/MCLars' Deangelo Vickers:
--> ''My dog got cancer, so we put it to sleep''
--> ''But when I rock the mic, I don't put you to sleep''
* "The Joker" by the Music/SteveMillerBand uses "love" twice in its opening verse:
--> Some people call me the Space Cowboy (yeah)\\
Some call me the Gangster of Love\\
Some people call me Maurice\\
'Cause I speak of the pompatus of love.
* The chorus of "Love is Like Oxygen" by Sweet matches "high" with itself:
--> Love is like oxygen\\
You get too much you get too high\\
Not enough and you're gonna die\\
Love gets you high.
* The chorus of Val Doonican's "Walk Tall" begins and ends with the same line, but the meat in the sandwich also rhymes a word with itself:
-->"Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye."\\
That's what my momma told me when I was about knee-high.\\
She said, "Son, be a proud man and hold your head up high.\\
Walk tall, walk straight and look the world right in the eye."
* [[Music/LinkinPark Mike Shinoda]] rhymes "today" with itself three times in "Papercut":
--> Why does it feel like night today?\\
Something in here's not right today.\\
Why am I so uptight today?\\
Paranoia's all I've got left.
* [[Music/{{OFWGKTA}} Tyler, the Creator]] both uses and subverts it on the song "The Tape Intro":
-->"Whether you [[NWordPrivileges nigga]] or esé\\
The magazine is great because the article's an essay\\
Half you dumb niggas can't even write an essay\\
'Cause all of y'all [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment some stupid asses]]. S.A."
* Asher Roth's "I Love College" rhymes "wasted" with "wasted" several times.
* Music/{{Pitbull}}'s "Give Me Everything ([[{{Foreshadowing}} Tonight]])" might be the new champion, starting it off by rhyming (of all things) "[[Creator/EastmanKodak Kodak]]" with "[[StuckOnBandAidBrand Kodak]]" in... the ''exact'' same context:
-->"Me not working hard?\\
Yeah right, picture that with a '''Kodak'''\\
Better yet, go to Times Square\\
Take a picture of me with a '''Kodak'''
** It is then followed by the word "tonight" rhyming with itself no fewer than '''''43 times''''' over the course of the song.
** In "Back in Time", the theme to the third ''Film/MenInBlack'' film, Pitbull rhymes "They can try if they want to", with "They can try if they want to."
* Music/KanyeWest does this as a joke in "Slow Jamz", referring to Michael Jackson's varying pigmentation over his life.
-->"She got a light-skinned friend look like Music/MichaelJackson\\
Got a dark-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson."
** He does something similar in Keri Hilson's "Knock You Down."
--> This is bad, real bad, Music/MichaelJackson.
--> Now I'm mad, real mad, Joe Jackson!
* Music/JenniferLopez's song "On The Floor" rhymes "on the floor" with "on the floor" too many times to count.
* Music/ChrisBrown provides a rather extreme example in his single "Look At Me Now."
-->Better cuff your chick if you with her, I can get her and she accidentally slip and fall on my dick
-->Oops I said, "on my dick"
-->I ain't really mean to say "on my dick"
-->But since we talkin' about my dick
-->All of you haters say hi to it.
* Some versions of "Winter Wonderland" have this verse:
-->In the meadow, we can build a snowman
-->And pretend that he's a circus clown
-->We'll have lots of fun with Mr. Snowman
-->Until the other kiddies knock him down
* Music/{{Foreigner}}'s "Hot Blooded":
--> You don't have to read my mind
--> To know what I have in mind.
* Music/BonJovi's "Wanted Dead Or Alive":
-->I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
-->I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back.
* Music/RiseAgainst's "Prayer of the Refugee":
-->So open your eyes, child, let's be on our way
-->Broken windows and ashes are guiding the way
* Big Sean's "Dance" rhymes "what's up" with "shut up".
* Kreayshawn's "Breakfast (Syrup)":
-->'Bout that juice, cheese, bread--breakfast
-->Stackin' dough--breakfast
* Music/LouReed's "Caroline Says" rhymes "vial" with "vile."
** Another Lou Reed one is "Walk On The Wild Side" where he rhymes 'head' with 'head' - "But she never lost her head, even when she was giving head".
* The Spin Doctors' "Two Princes" takes it UpToEleven by putting "now" at the end of ''[[BrokenRecord every other line]]'' outside of the choruses, and also rhyme "you" with itself several times.
* Wocka Flocka Flame does this a lot in the song "Oh Let's Do It" by rhyming "up" "what the fuck you want" "Riverdale, Gerogia" and "acting crazy" all with themselves.
* The chorus of Music/ButtholeSurfers' "Shame Of Life" rhymes "life" with itself (to be fair it could be said that it rhymes "''shame'' of life" and "''game'' of life"). Apparently Music/KidRock was responsible for that part of the song though.
* Music/TheWho's "Behind Blue Eyes" rhymes man with itself in the first and last verses, but averts this throughout the rest of the song.
* The Gun Club's "For The Love Of [[Music/TheCramps Ivy]]" rhymes "hell" with itself four times in a row.
* Music/NickiMinaj rhymes "nothing" with itself in "Beez in the Trap." She also rhymes "man" with itself in "Stupid Hoe".
* Music/KatyPerry's "Part of Me":
-->This is the part of me
-->That you're never gonna ever take away from me
* Music/{{Beyonce}}'s famous "Irreplaceable".
-->I could have another you in a minute.
-->And in fact, he'll be here in a minute!
** "7/11" from the reissue of her self-titled release may be the new grand champion, rhyming ''several'' words with themselves:
*** The very first few bars of the song rhyme "smack it in the air" with itself six times, which is then repeated after the second verse.
*** After that, "put it in the air" rhymes with itself, then so does "like you don't care".
*** The first verse rhymes "foot up" and "hands up" with themselves many times.
*** After that, the bridge rhymes "alcohol" with itself seven times.
*** The outro repeats "Wave your hands side to side" four times.
* The ballad "Wreck of the Old 97" does this, rhyming "time" with "time".
-->They gave him his orders at Monroe, Virginia
-->Saying "Steve, you're way behind time,
-->This is not 38, but it's Old 97,
-->You must put her into Spencer on time."
* The final verse of the otherwise sublime ''[[Music/BlueOysterCult Don't Fear The Reaper]]'' does this...
-->Came the last night of sadness, and it was clear she couldn't go on;
--> And the door burst open and a wind appeared;
--> The candle blew and then disappeared;
--> The curtains flew and then He appeared...
--> (Sayin' "Don't be afraid")
** The Cult also gave us the final verse of "E.T.I.", in which only one line out of the four does not end in the word "motion".
* "Silent All These Years" by Music/ToriAmos:
--> So you've found a girl who thinks really deep thoughts
--> Tell me what's so amazing about really deep thoughts?
* "The Deal" by P, although it can be argued that they're at least using two different definitions of the same word:
-->And so the moral of this story is
-->Never cross an angel with an ass
-->Never treat the shiny one to ice cream cones
--> Never pinch a sweaty, mean cop's ass
* "Rainy Night in Georgia" (originally Tony Joe White, CoveredUp by Brook Benton):
-->Neon lights flashin', taxi cabs and buses
-->Passing through the night
-->The distant moaning of a train seems to play a sad refrain
-->To the night
* [[WebVideo/AutoTuneTheNews Schmoyoho]] makes fun of this in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUvhAPs38RA DJ Play My Song (NO, LEAVE ME ALONE)]]
-->You just rhymed "up" with "up"!
-->You're really phoning this in.
-->Does "mouse" rhyme with "mouse"? No, it's the same word!
* Gary Allan's "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)":
-->Go find a new rose, don't be afraid of the '''thorns'''
-->'Cause we all have '''thorns'''
* Even Ian Anderson of Music/JethroTull is not immune. From "Back to the Family":
-->Everything I do is wrong,\\
what the hell was I thinking?\\
Phone keeps ringing all day long\\
I got no time for thinking.
* Music/RobinThicke's "Blurred Lines": "You wanna hug me?\ [[LampshadeHanging What rhymes with]] 'hug me'?"
** WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows made sure to point out that the obvious intended rhyme was "Fuck me", but that was too much of a stretch to work. [[DateRape "Drug me"]], on the other hand fits.
* The Boswell Sisters' "I Can't Write the Words" rhymed "Spanish castle" with itself several times for humorous effect, lampshading it at the end of the verse:
-->I've got a rhyme for a Spanish castle\\
Grass'll grow around the castle
* Music/KellyClarkson's "Mr. Know It All" rhymes "Know it all" with "Know it all", and then "thing at all". Later, it rhymes "bring me down" with "bring me down", and then "back again" with "back again". ''Yeesh...''
* Subverted with Music/LadyGaga's "Alejandro", in that, as pointed out by WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows, almost had "in her pocket" rhyme with itself, but was instead replaced by "en su bolsillo", which is just Spanish for "in her pocket".
* Joey Bada$$ does this a lot in his Music/LilB diss, "Don't Quit Your Day Job". A good part of the song rhymes "nigga" with itself.
-->You [[PinkIsForSissies pink flame ass nigga]], lame ass nigga\\
[[AttentionWhore Publicity stuntin' for the fame ass nigga]]\\
Badass, I'm not lyin' but you've got to tame that nigga
* Two examples from country music:
** TracyLawrence rhymes "again" with itself in "Texas Tornado," and not just because of the repetition in the last line:
-->My little Texas tornado, you're blowing me away again
-->I swore it wouldn't happen again
-->But you looked at me and then
-->I'm like a tumbleweed in a wild west Texas wind
--> You're blowing me away again
** But that's more variety than Mel Street's "Virigina's Song," which contains no actual rhyme in the chorus, but only the word "again," repeated in *each* line.
-->What I wouldn't give to see Virginia again
-->To press her sweet lips so warm and full of love to mine again and again
-->Her sparkling eyes, her soft brown curls are invading my memories again
-->Lord, what I wouldn't give to see Virginia again
* This is all over the place in Afrikaans music, for one quirk of their grammar: Afrikaans always uses double negatives, and thus any negative sentence, ("I do not know," "he is not here," "I saw nothing," etc.), always ends in the word ''nie'', "not." [[note]]Like ''Ek het '''niks''' gesien '''nie''', ''I have nothing seen not'' = "I saw nothing."[[/note]] This makes rhyming two negative sentences rather simple, but it still gets old fast.
* A few examples from some of Music/ImagineDragons songs:
** "On Top of the World" rhymes "you" and "something" with themselves.
** "Ready, Aim, Fire"
--->How come I've never seen your face 'round here?\\
I know every single face 'round here\\
A man on a mission, changing the vision\\
I was never welcome here
** "Monster"
--->I'm only a man with a candle to guide me\\
I'm taking a stand to escape what's inside me\\
A monster, a monster\\
I've turned into a monster\\
A monster, a monster\\
And it keeps getting stronger
* From the Plain White T's' "Hey There Delilah"
--->I'd walk to you if I had no other way
--->Our friends would all make fun of us
--->and we'll just laugh along because we know
--->That none of them have felt this way
** There's also
---> We'll have it good
---> We'll have the life we knew we would
---> My word is good
** and
--->I’d write it all,
--->Even more in love with me you’d fall,
--->We’d have it all.
* Music/{{Paramore}} does this in "Misery Business":
--->Second chances, they don't ever matter
--->People never change
--->Once a whore, you're nothing more, I'm sorry
--->That'll never change
* "My Sharona" by The Knacks only ever rhymes "Sharona" with itself. This is possibly because, as [[Radio/PhiladelphiasClassicRock Andre Gardner]] points out, if they averted this trope the songwriters would have to have come up with ridiculous slant rhymes, like "[[Music/WeirdAlYankovic bologna]]" or something.
* Music/MileyCyrus does this twice in "We Can't Stop". The first time she rhymes 'now' with 'now', and the second time she does this:
--->And everyone in '''line in the bathroom'''
--->Trying to get a '''line in the bathroom'''
* Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert's "Something Bad" rhymes a word with the past tense version of itself. Not technically rhyming with itself, but it is very close:
--->Stand on the bar, stomp your feet, start clapping
--->Got a real good feeling something bad about to '''happen'''
--->Drinks keep coming, throw my head back laughing
--->Wake up in the morning’ don’t know what '''happened'''
* Cannibal Ox's "Raspberry Fields":
-->The sample's the flesh and the beat's the skeleton
-->You got beef but there's worms in your Wellington
-->I'll put a hole in your skull and extract your skeleton
-->[[LampshadeHanging Oh my God, said a word twice]], Vast Aire, I'm twice as nice
** Those lines are repeated later in the song, but the second time Vast Aire changes the rhyme to "extract your ''gelatine''".
* An interesting French-language example from Music/CelineDion's 1987 song "La Religieuse" (''The Nun''): one verse rhymes with itself ''twice'', but in both cases does not rhyme a word with itself, but rather rhymes a short word with a longer word that includes it. It rhymes "mur" (wall) with "murmurent" (murmur, the "ent" is silent) and "vie" (life) with "envie" (desire).
-->De l'autre coté de ce mur (''From the other side of this wall'')
-->Il y a le soleil de la vie (''There is the sun of life'')
-->Il y a des lèvres qui murmurent (''There are lips that murmur'')
-->A des lèvres assoiffées d'envie (''To lips thirsty with desire'')
* "Glow in the Dark" by Carishma:
-->I made a wish and now I know where you are, boy\\
I think I found it, you're my lucky star, boy\\
It's not the kind of feeling that you fight, boy\\
Cause I can see you in the dark at night, boy
* "Creator/ShiaLaBeouf" by Rob Cantor:
-->You’re sneaking up behind him.
-->Strangling superstar Shia [=LaBeouf=].
-->Fighting for your life with Shia [=LaBeouf=],
-->Wrestling a knife from Shia [=LaBeouf=],
-->Stab it in his kidney.
-->Safe at last from Shia [=LaBeouf=].
* "No Mediocre" by T.I.:
--> All I fuck is bad bitches
--> I don't want no mediocre
--> Don't want no mediocre
--> I don't want no mediocre, no
--> Bad bitches only
--> Ain't no mediocre
-->Don't want no mediocre
--> I won't hit no mediocre
--> You a bad bitch
--> Stunting on the mediocre
--> All over the mediocre
--> You stunting on the mediocre
--> Seven bitches with me
--> And ain't none of them mediocre
-->From they head to they toes
-->They so far from mediocre
** Also, in the same song:
-->No more, you won't get no dick if there's a bush down there
-->Girl I should see nothing but pussy when I look down there
* In Marcy Playground's "Sex and Candy", the words "myself" and "myself" are rhymed with each other several times.
* From "Suds & Soda" from ''Music/WorstCaseScenario'' by {{Music/dEUS}}:
--> ''It's suds and soda, a brain decoder''
--> ''and can I wait for my decoder''
* {{Music/Missy Elliott}}'s portion of {{Music/Katy Perry}}'s "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) (Remix)" does this in two consecutive couplets:
-->I party till I'm out my mind
-->I kiss on him, but he don't mind
-->Then I wake up in the morn
-->Got a guy in my bed like, hello good morn
* {{Music/Live}} has a WordSaladLyrics song called "Rattlesnake" that contains the following homophone rhyme:
-->In another place, in another time, I'd be drivin' trucks, my dear
-->I'd be skinnin' hunted deer
* "Moonchild" by Music/IronMaiden has the last verse rhyming "night" with itself. [[Music/BruceDickinson Bruce's]] epic story-teller enunciation on both lines makes it hard to notice.
* 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
* Both Music/BrantleyGilbert's "Bottoms Up" and Music/LukeBryan's "Kick the Dust Up" repeatedly rhyme "up" with "up".
* "My World" by Music/TroutFishingInAmerica:
-->When I walk my feet are sinking in the sidewalk\\
Just like I'm walking on a trampoline\\
And when I jump into the air, everybody ducks their heads\\
Then I bounce, just like on a trampoline
* Phil Phillips' "Sea of Love" opens with:
-->Come with me, my love
-->To the sea, the Sea of Love
* From Music/BiffyClyro's "Saturday Superhouse":
-->There's a dozen corpses on the left side, I swear one's smiling at me\\
Compliments on your confessions baby, wow you really showed me
** And then in "Flammable":
--->All of the things I said shouldn't fail you now\\
Unless you're looking for a miracle\\
Out of the light, we lost you in the crowd\\
You'll never find us a miracle
* From Music/DschinghisKhan's English version of "Loreley":
-->Every man desired her, but her heart was not her own, there was just one lover for her.
-->But he'd gone away to war, never ever to return, so this life held nothing for her.
* From "At the Gallows End" by Music/{{Candlemass}}:
-->A sinner, a fool or a devil\\
Or just a victim of life\\
It's no fun to burn in hell's fire\\
But I sure have enjoyed my life
* 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.
* Happens two different times in Music/{{Avantasia}}'s song "The Scarecrow"
** First in the chorus:
-->Rise to fame - time will come\\
Make your claim - time has come\\
For the crow to fly away
** And later in the song:
-->Their evil eyes are looking down on you\\
And those who don't are losing sight of you
* A very clever homophone in Lloyd Cole's "2CV". (But what else do you expect from him?)
-->All we ever shared was a taste in clothes\\
oh we were never close\\

* In most of Edward Lear's early limericks, the first and last lines are the same, with this as the inevitable consequence. [[http://wonderingminstrels.blogspot.com/2000/03/there-was-old-man-with-beard-edward.html One]] rhymes "beard" with "beard".
* Dante Alighieri did this intentionally in Literature/TheDivineComedy. To prevent any sense of blasphemy, he only rhymed the word "[[UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}} Christ]]" with "Christ."[[note]]And mind you, it's much easier to find words that rhyme with "Christ" (well, "''Cristo''") in Italian than it is in English.[[/note]] Notable in that he had to do it three times do to the rhyming system of the Comedy (ABA CAC).
* Creator/EdgarAllanPoe sometimes did this to deliberate effect, e.g., in ''The Raven'':
-->"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven,\\
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly ''shore''--\\
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian ''shore''!"
* Creator/JorgeLuisBorges did it occasionally, most notably in [[http://www.cafenocturno.com/poesia/arte_poetica.htm "Arte Poetica"]], where every rhyme is of this kind, with system ABBA.
* In Creator/RobertBrowning's "Give a Rouse", a short poem meant to be a marching song sung by Cavalier soldiers in the English Civil War, ''every'' rhyme is this. The first verse has three straight lines ending in "now".

* In ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'' song "Notes/Prima Donna", theater-manager Firmin rhymes "wrote" with "wrote," but quickly corrects himself.
-->'''Raoul:''' ''Isn't this the letter you wrote?''
-->'''Firmin:''' ''And what is it that we're meant to have wrote? (Spoken)'' Ah... written.
* Oscar Hammerstein II rhymes "forever" with "forever" in his song "Edelweiss" from ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''.
* Music/RedHousePainters' Mark Kozelek usually avoids this. On the song "Have You Forgotten", though, he accidentally lets one slip: "That's when friends were nice, To think of them just makes you feel nice."
* ''Theatre/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'' has the lyric "Sweeney pondered and Sweeney planned, like a perfect machine 'e planned" appearing in the [[CrowningMusicofAwesome title song]]. (In this case, note that it's actually the last three syllables of each line that rhyme, with only the very last syllable being the same word.)
* The musical version of ''Theatre/BillyElliot'' has "Grandma's Song" which rhymes finger with finger constantly.
* The musical adaptation of ''Film/FindingNeverland'' has these lines from "When Your Feet Don't Touch the Ground"
--> Now all my tears are all cried out,
--> Make-believe, but count me out.
* One of the plays of [[Creator/JaraCimrman Jára Cimrman]] Theatre in Prague contains a poem that is ALL this, containing "rhymes" like "Our old clock beats four o'clock". Jára Cimrman apparently believed that a rhyme must repeat the whole word in order to be considered perfect. The actors mention (with a straight face, as always) that it's still not a perfect solution, since the perfection of the rhyme is at the cost of "certain diminishment of the meaning".
* 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.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Though written, Pokiehl in ''VideoGame/LegendOfMana'' tries writing a poem about Watts, but is clearly struggling to come up with anything to say about him. The first three lines all end with the word "helm", and the last doesn't even try to rhyme.
* Occurs twice in the song "Full Tank (All Masters' RAP)" from ''VideoGame/ParappaTheRapper'':
-->'''Chop Chop Master Onion''':
--> I need to go just as bad as you
--> What I had this morning I don't even wanna say to you
--> ...
-->'''Cheap Cheap The Cooking Chicken''':
--> Crack, break, fix the door, you know.
--> I gotta go, so yes open up, ya know!
* In ''VideoGame/TheWorldEndsWithYou'', the song "Transformation" rhymes over with over. Twice.
** And the refrain of "Three Minutes Clapping"
--->Time, I won't ever give in\\
No matter how hard you pull me in
* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' mobile game has normally excellent rhymer Zecora do this when you reach the Everfree Forest for the first time. Spike {{lampshade|Hanging}}s it.
* ''VideoGame/StreetFighterIII: The Third Strike'' has this on the [[https://youtu.be/Dgb3XlTyA0Q?t=47s character selection screen]]:
--> Choose and pick the best one\\
Five, four, three, two, one

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner:
** On ''Music/StrongBadSingsAndOtherTypeHits'', Strong Bad comments on this during Marzipan's song "[[http://hrwiki.org/wiki/Sensitive_To_Bees Sensitive to Bees]]," where she rhymes "cute" with "cute" twice in a row, after rhyming it with [[PainfulRhyme "fruit"]].
--->'''Strong Bad:''' "Cute", ''"cute"'' and "cute." [[SarcasmMode You're the poet laureate of-]]
** Crackotage generally RhymesOnADime, but in [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/cheatcommandos4.html Commandos in the Classroom]]:
--->'''Crackotage:''' Movie night is my favorite night. I think it is my favorite night. Hee hee hoo hoo!
--->'''Silent Rip:''' Are you even trying anymore?
---> And in an EasterEgg...
--->'''Crackotage:''' [[LampshadeHanging I think my rhymes are truly broke!]] Broke, broke, broke, broke, broke, broke, broke!
* The Website/JibJab Christmas song "Santa Claus" has one:
-->'''Santa:''' I'm running out of dough,\\
The bills ain't getting paid.\\
''[camera cuts to Santa in bed with Ma Claus]'' I can't remember when,\\
The last time I got... ''[{{Beat}}, camera cuts back to Santa grabbing dollar bills]'' paid!
* Animeme Rap Battles: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YF86IrnfDis Most Interesting Man vs. Old Spice Guy]]
-->'''Terry Crews:''' What rhymes with "Explosion"?\\
[[LampshadeHanging Another explosion]]\\
Now excuse me, I gotta go work on my tits at Gold's gym.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The theme to the joke [[WebVideo/ImAMarvelAndImADC "Rorschach and Wolverine"]] rhymes "psychopath" with itself:
--> Rorschach and Wolverine, they make a great team. He's a psychopath, he's also a psychopath. I don't think the premise really works.
* In ''WebVideo/HorribleTurn,'' a song rhymes "we can throw shrimp on the barbie" with "I can be Ken, she can be Barbie".
* Harry's song in the ''WebVideo/PotterPuppetPals'' episode "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y18LUMkVt2Y The Vortex]]", plus "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xy-4ykwGFDk Happy Hogwarts Birthday!!!]]"
* Creator/ConanOBrien's "Music/{{Friday}}" parody, "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAFau7OGS1U Thursday]]", has this for a rapping [[AWildRapperAppears interlude]]:
-->Why is there a rapper here?
-->Why exactly am I here?
-->[[LampshadeHanging Did I just rhyme "here" with "here"?]]
-->I am getting out of here!
-->'''Conan:''' That was a rapper, which makes this a real song!
--> Fun fun fun, fun fun fun fun fun....
* ''WebVideo/ToddInTheShadows'' complains about this, especially when it's done multiple times in the same song. Though he reacts worse when people "rhyme" words that obviously don't rhyme, no matter how much you distort them.
** "WebVideo/RapCritic" also has gripes when rappers rhyme words with themselves, such as {{RickRoss}}'s constantly rhyming lines that end in two, or atlantic with atlantic.
* ''WebVideo/FriendshipIsWitchcraft'' gives us this gem:
-->'''Zecora:''' Hey there kiddo, don't be sad. This night didn't turn out so s-sad... Just listen to what I've... [[PainfulRhyme sai-aid..]] ''And then you won't feel so sad!''
* Happens in several of the ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory''. Not all cases of it are cringe-inducing, though (at least as far as the verse itself) - take, for example, one part of [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]]'s verse in his 3rd battle against UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler where one phrase is used with three different meanings (with some help from the beat which ramped up the bass as he went along):
-->You wrote a little book, got 'em fired up
-->Had a Beer Hall Putsch, got 'em fired up
-->When your bunker started getting fired up
-->You put a gun in your mouth and fired up!
** Creator/{{Voltaire}} also has some fun with this in "Philosophers East vs West":
--> Let me ''be frank:''\\
Don't start beef with ''the Frank''\\
Who hangs with ''[[Creator/BenjaminFranklin B. Franks]]''\\
Giving ladies ''beef franks!''
** UsefulNotes/VladimirLenin also pulled this against UsefulNotes/JosefStalin
-->Josef, you were supposed to be my ''right hand man''.
-->But your loyalty shriveled up like your ''[[RedRightHand right hand]], man''
** Both UsefulNotes/WayneGretzky and Tony Hawk pull this on eachother. Wayne's is clever. Tony's is......not.
-->''Wayne Gretzky'' Hey, let me tell you what putting a puck in the ''net's worth''
-->''Wayne Gretzky'' Double what you've banked in bucks, check my ''net worth''
-->''Tony Hawk'' Great one, Wayne
-->''Tony Hawk'' Let me say something Wayne
-->''Tony Hawk'' I got 99 problems but you ain't one, Wayne
* ''WebVideo/DontHugMeImScared'':
** Tony the Clock from is pretty subpar at rhyming.
-->Let's go on a journey/a journey through time/a time that's changing all the time/it's time to go to TIME!
*** Earlier, he sings "Time is a ruler to measure the day. It doesn't go backwards, only one way. Watch it go round like a merry-go-round, going so fast like a merry-go-round."
** In the third:
-->'''Red Guy''': Now that we have eaten the chicken, I don't know what to do.\\
'''Duck Guy''': Maybe, we should look for our friend. Isn't that what friends do?
** And in the sixth, when Lamp [[DreamWeaver forces Yellow Guy to have nightmares]]:
-->'''Lamp''': You can have a dream about losing your friends! Or you can have a dream about burning your friends!
** Exaggerated in the first video, when Sketchbook rhymes "I use my hair to express myself!" with "I use my hair to express myself!"
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfCYZ3pks48 "Sex Offender Shuffle"]]:
-->''I'm not the necrophiliac Arthur Chase''\\
''That's a different Arthur Chase''
* On a website of health-related poems for children, there's a case of this.
--> The itchy, itchy nose needs a tissue now. Go to the box and get a tissue now. Wipe off your nose and throw the tissue away. Then we go to the sink and wash the germs away.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Team Homer," the bowling team has taken to chanting motivational chants at each other during games:
--> '''All but Homer:''' Come on, Homer! Come on, Homer! / Pretend this is baseball and hit us a homer!
--> ''(Homer gets a strike; they cheer)''
--> '''Homer:''' By the way, guys: rhyming "Homer" with "homer"? ''(kisses fingers)''
** Another ''Simpsons'' example, from a man in love with Marge:
---> Lady, when you go away\\
It makes me wanna die\\
And not dye like your hair is dyed\\
But die like Lady Di\\
And not die like her name is Di\\
But die like when she died\\
But, lady, just like Lady Di\\
You're my princess tonight\\
But don't die.
** There's also the first lines in a poem Homer came up with:
--> There once was a rapping tomato\\
That's right, I said "rapping tomato"\\
He would rap all day\\
From April to May...\\
And also, guess what, [[TomatoSurprise it was me]].
* The intro theme to ''She-Ra: the Secret of the Sword.'' WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick was not impressed.
** Somewhere out there someone needs me\\
I don't know how or where but believe me\\
I'll search the universe to find her\\
for better or for worse beside her
* A poem Binky wrote in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' fit this trope so much that it was made as the page quote.
* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/CloneHigh'':
-->'''Gandhi:''' Man, you wanted a kiss, but instead you got bupkis. *Gasp* 'Kiss'...bupkis.' I just totally rhymed! I rhymed! Wait, 'rhymed,' 'rhymed'! I did it again!
** And indeed, later in the episode, he records a hit song with these lyrics:
--->[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar G-Spot]] rocks the G-Spot!\\
G-Spot rocks the G-Spot!\\
What's my name? (G-Spot!)\\
What do I rhyme? (the G-Spot!)
* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/StrokerAndHoop'', Hoop tells a rapper that "technically, 'club' does not rhyme with 'club'."
* In ''Disney/DerFuehrersFace'', there is one song verse that rhymes with itself, rhyming "shells" with "shells":
-->When der Fuehrer yells,\\
"We've got to have more shells!",\\
We Heil! Heil!\\
For him we make more shells!
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}:'' "The Good-Bye Song"
-->We're so sad we've no more time together\\
Just to drop an anvil on your '''head'''\\
And stuff your pockets full of dynamite\\
Then tie you to a rhino's '''head!'''
** And then in "Wakko's America":
-->Sacramento, California; Oklahoma and its '''city'''\\
Charleston, West Virginia and Nevada, Carson '''City!'''
* The "Good Clean Fun" song on ''[[WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter PB&J Otter]]'' has "Some routine that is clean / And our clothes not wrinkled / We can stay all pressed and pure / And we won't get wrinkled."
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}''
** The song "Come On In, The Water's Fine" rhymes "happen" with itself:
-->Something big's been waiting to happen\\
Ever since you and I met\\
But if we wanna make it happen\\
We gotta let our feet get wet
** "People Who Care" is glaringly obvious in how it rhymes "dreams" with itself.
-->Caring people are people with dreams\\
Who go to extremes\\
To fight for those dreams
* In the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode "Mayhem of the Music Meister" Black Canary rhymes Man with itself:
-->A brave man like no man,\\
Be my man...\\
** And:
-->A brave man like no man,\\
His own man...\\
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheYearWithoutASantaClaus'', Heat Miser's song rhymes "degrees" with "degrees". [[AnIcePerson Snow Miser]]'s song, which is the same tune to almost-the-same lyrics, rhymed it with "freeze", but that obviously wasn't going to work with [[PlayingWithFire Heat Miser]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/FostersHomeForImaginaryFriends'' episode "Bloo Done it", Bloo [[GreenEyedMonster gets jealous]] over the attention famous imaginary friend Uncle Pockets gets and attempts to imitate his [[RhymesOnADime rhyming ability]].
-->'''Bloo:''' "Pssh! Anyone can do that! La-la-la, look at me, dancing around. My name is Bloo. I'm the best...around.\\
'''Mac:''' "[[LampshadeHanging You just rhymed 'around' with 'around'.]]"\\
'''Bloo:''' ''(mocking him)'' "You just wehn ah-meh neh meh-neh."
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheMarvelousMisadventuresOfFlapjack'' episode "Willy!", this is lampshaded, and then gloriously [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated.]]
-->'''Eight-Armed Willy:''' You tried stealing my ink, but here is the thing,\\
If you just would have asked, you just would have seen\\
That I'd give you the ink, if you've just led me sing\\
Because the thing is, I just love to sing!\\
''(The band playing the music stops playing, disappointed.)''\\
'''Writer:''' It's okay, songs don't have to rhyme.\\
'''Eight-Armed Willy:''' Ha ha! Hit it, fellas!\\
Adventure, adventure, adventure, adventure\\
Adventure, adventure, adventure, adventure\\
'''Willy, Flapjack and Writers:''' Adventure, adventure, adventure, adventure\\
Adventure, adventure, adventure, adventure\\
''(A chorus takes the song from there, other voices repeating "Adventure" in a different rhythm.)''
* The potty song on ''WesternAnimation/DanielTigersNeighborhood'' has "''If you have to go to the potty / Stop and go right away / Flush, wash and be on your way.''"
