Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"I'll Make Your Bed"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I'm not the kind of girl that married dear dad
I don't make apple pies and cookies from scratch
Later in the song...
I promised forever on the day that we met
That I'll love you truly and I'll make your bed.
Why They're Misrhymed:
I don't know why Dolly thinks that 'Dad' rhymes with 'scratch," because they just simply DON'T. 'Met' and 'bed' is perhaps understandable, but still pushing it.
Submitted by: Raphael
"9 To 5"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
You're in the same boat with a lotta your friends
Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in
Why They're Misrhymed:

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Me and Little Andy "
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
If you don't love, us no one will
Why They're Inappropriate:
She's talking about a little girl being neglected by her dad. Earlier in the song she says "my mummy ran away again" and later she says "my daddy's drunk again in town" insinuating that he's an alcoholic and possibly abusive towards her and her mum when she's there.
Submitted by: Louise Mills
"Love Is Like A Butterfly"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Before writing this generally delightful song, Dolly Parton would have done well to observe whether she ever actually saw daffodils and butterflies together or not. Chances are she seldom if ever would have seen such an association. To begin with daffodils are late winter to early spring blooming flowers. Than means, at any give location, they bloom at a time of year earlier than when butterflies start appearing there in substantial numbers. Furthermore, even if butterflies were to find daffodils in bloom, they are hardly among the flowers they'd seek out for nectar (which is why butterflies visit flowers). You can find numerous references to what plants are good for growing in 'butterfliy gardens' to attract butterflies. You won't see daffodils listed among them. That is not only because of daffodils' blooming times. It is because flowers best suited for butterfly nectaring, at whatever season they might find them, are flowers that occur in clusters of numerous small flowers (that includes Composite family 'flowers' such as dandelions, goldenrod, etc., which are clusters, not single flowers). Daffodils would be further unsuitable because of their corona, the cup-like structure on top of the petals, a structure few flowers have. Such a corona's rim would be a particularly unsuitable place for a butterfly to try to perch and seek nectar.
