Roger Miller's, "Dang Me"
The Lyrics:
Roses are red, violets are purple,
Sugar is sweet and so is maple syrple.
He alters "maple syrup" to "maple syrple" to force a rhyme.

Roger Miller's, "England Swings"
The Lyrics:
England swings like a pendulum do
The word "England" is mispronounced throughout the song as "Engerland," probably to fit the meter of the song.
