Rick Springfield's, "What Kind Of Fool Am I"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Did it come too easy to the two of us
Did we go too wrong to ever make it right
Were we too busy checking out the left hand
That we didn't see the right
Why They're Misrhymed:
"What kind of fool" would try to rhyme a word with itself? (Even if the word is used with a different meaning each time.)

Allan Sherman's, "Sarah Jackman"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
How's your cousin Bentley?
Feeling better ment'ly.
Why They're Misrhymed:
That's a stretch, Allan, changing "mentally " to "ment'ly" to make it rhyme and scan.

Duran Duran 's, "Hold Back the Rain"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
So what if the words ain't rhyming
Did you think that it's just a game
I probably didn't even say that right
And I really don't give a damn
Why They're Misrhymed:
Actually, the verses don't have any rhymes anywhere, but the above example shows that Simon Le Bon KNOWS that his lyrics ain't rhyming (let alone making sense at all) , but damnit - he don't give a DAMN. Just listen to the song and dance to it if you'd like to because it's so GOOD!

Julie Andrews', "Show Me"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Haven't your arms hungered for mine?
Please don't expline,

Barbara Streisand's, "Rat-Tat-Tat-Tat"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I'm through and through red, white and bluish,
I talk this way Because I'm British.
Why They're Misrhymed:
In this song from the Broadway musical Funny Girl, the singer is playing Private Irving Schvartz (Schvartz being a common last name among Jews) and singing in a string Yiddish accent; it's obvious that the word British doesn't belong there - and the word which does belong there rhymes with the previous line.

Searching my car, looking for the product
Thinking every ni**a is selling narcotics
Why They're Misrhymed:
"Product" and "narcotics" don't normally rhyme, and it kinda' grinds my gears ever since I first listened to this song.
