Best lyrical rhymes ever

There have been a few posts about musical superlatives, including best starting lyrics to a song (along with part 2) and best moments in songs. There was even a best ‘proud to be British while walking in New York‘ song post. This evening I was inspired to open up the competition for best rhyming lyrics ever, listening to Perry Como’s Magic Moments. Below are a couple of starters for ten.

Perry Como, Magic Moments
– The way that we cheered whenever our team was scoring a touchdown
– The time that the floor fell out on my car when I put the clutch down

Burt Bacharach, I’ll Never Fall in Love Again
– What do you get when you kiss a girl, you get enough germs to catch pneumonia
– After you do, she’ll never phone you

I’m sure some more will come up in iPod listening, but as I say, it’s a start. Please feel free to add through the comments feature.

    “No Time At All” from the musical Pippin by Stephen Schwartz

    You could squander away or sequester
    A drop of a precious year
    For when your best days are yester
    The rest’re twice as dear

    ~~

    “Oh, No!” from Veggie Tales

    We could use him as a footstool
    Or a table to play Scrabble on
    And tie him up and beat him up
    And throw him out of Babylon
