Added DiffLines:

** "Give It Away" is amply stocked with these, which range from eye-rolling to ear-bleeding. For example, "mama"/"papa", "water"/"daughter", "talk it"/"cough it", "love me"/"scrub me", and "wither/deliver" Plenty of [[LyricalShoehorn Lyrical Shoehorns]] too.


Added DiffLines:

* None of these justifications can quite explain the rhyme between "Jesus" and "diseases" in "There's Not a Friend Like the Lowly Jesus".


--> I hopped off the plane at L.A.X with a dream and my cardigan

to:

--> I hopped off the plane at L.A.X X. with a dream and my cardigan


Added DiffLines:

** "Fame, excess" rhymes painfully with L.A.X., whereas the {{Mondegreen}} "fame and sex" rhymes properly, suggesting that "fame and sex" was the original phrase. Naturally, {{Creator/Disney}} would never allow that.

Other gems include things being so amazing they can "shock your eyelids", this mentioned randomly after "Pure magic is the birth of my kids" midway through the first verse (there is no coherent flow from one thought to the next in this song which contributes to its chaotic attempts at rhyming). That's saying nothing of the infamous "magnets" segment that is ''full'' of its own problems.

* Zladko "ZLAD!" Vladcik in "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGBHfXPqbgI I Am the Anti-Pope]]" does unholy things to the English language to get "unanimous" and "instantaneous" to rhyme. Honorable mentions also go to "Jesus Christ" being matched with "cheeses sliced", and "crucifixed" with "six-six-sixth". This is all part of the song's ''very'' deliberate StylisticSuck.

* Music/InsaneClownPosse's [[MemeticMutation legendary]] "Miracles". To begin with, here's a couplet where an obvious filler word was used to force a rhyme where none would otherwise be present:
--> Look at the mountains, trees, the seven seas
--> And everything chilling underwater, '''please'''
This immortal couplet opens the first verse:
--> If magic is all we've ever known
--> Then it's easy to miss what really goes '''on'''

* Music/Heaven17's "(We Don't Need That) Fascist Groove Thang" has an egregious example. And it's not a rhyme with "thang" either! I don't think "hand" is meant to rhyme with "throat", but "population" is clearly supposed to rhyme with "ocean"! It doesn't.
--> Sisters, brothers lend a hand
--> Increase our population
--> Grab that groove thang by the throat
--> And throw it in the ocean
