Help me find songs that use THE SAME WORD to make a "rhyme".

Songwriters do it from time to time... either they're just too lazy to find a rhyme, or the word they need to rhyme has no rhyme (see: orange) or they lost their rhyming dictionary and are too cheap to spring for a new one. Or, on the brighter side, maybe rhyming the word with itself just, well, worked, somehow. Or maybe it was the only way out, once the songwriter had painted himself into that corner. No matter the reason, I'm interested in this phenomenon, and I hope that if such an example of same-word rhyming in a song comes to mind, you'll kindly post it here. With links, if possible!
To all you folks who'll grace me with an answer,
I'd like to say here: "thank you", in advance
I'll say it once again, so you'll remember,
flapjax at midnite thanks you, in advance.
