The Best Rhymes

Rhyming is pretty important in some songs. It's something for which they earn gongs -

Please decide on rhymes great or absurd,
That are the best that you have ever heard.
Perhaps the two words rhyming aren't quite what you'd expect
Maybe they don't appear to to gel, or sit or rightly connect.
Maybe the rhyme actually made the verse sound better than it probably should've done.
If so - let us know, it might actually be fun.

E.G.
One of my favourite rhymes is from Nine Inch Nails,
Which is strange because this often fails
Half the time I get the impression they're recycling the lyrics
Or rhyming words like 'cat' and 'hat', like childish little pillocks.
Nonetheless, I like them. -- Yet this rhyme caught me off guard.
It struck me deep inside, it hit me very hard.
It's one I use in this thread to begin.
It's of course, this song, it's called 'Sin.'

--

"I'm just an effigy to be disgraced.
To be defaced.
Your need for me has been replaced.
And if I can't have everything well then just give me a taste."

YouTube - Nine Inch Nails - Sin

I apologise for my badly rhyming poem,
If you have tomatoes. Please do throw 'em :D

Tom Lehrer's "The Elements":

There's antimony, arsenic, aluminum, selenium,
And hydrogen and oxygen and nitrogen and rhenium,
And nickel, neodymium, neptunium, germanium,
And iron, americium, ruthenium, uranium,
Europium, zirconium, lutetium, vanadium,
And lanthanum and osmium and astatine and radium,
And gold and protactinium and indium and gallium,
And iodine and thorium and thulium and thallium.

There's yttrium, ytterbium, actinium, rubidium,
And boron, gadolinium, niobium, iridium,
And strontium and silicon and silver and samarium,
And bismuth, bromine, lithium, beryllium, and barium.

Isn't that interesting?
I knew you would.
I hope you're all taking notes, because there's going to be a short quiz next period.

There's holmium and helium and hafnium and erbium,
And phosphorus and francium and fluorine and terbium,
And manganese and mercury, molybdenum, magnesium,
Dysprosium and scandium and cerium and cesium.
And lead, praseodymium, and platinum, plutonium,
Palladium, promethium, potassium, polonium,
And tantalum, technetium, titanium, tellurium,
And cadmium and calcium and chromium and curium.

There's sulfur, californium, and fermium, berkelium,
And also mendelevium, einsteinium, nobelium,
And argon, krypton, neon, radon, xenon, zinc, and rhodium,
And chlorine, carbon, cobalt, copper, tungsten, tin, and sodium.

These are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard,
And there may be many others, but they haven't been discovered.


Seriously, listen to this and tell me if you think you could sing it: YouTube - The Elements Song - Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theater do Tom Lehrer

Fabulous Tucker. Once again you excel. I laughed at that and was impressed. I'll rep when I can.
