Orange you gonna find a rhyme for that?
July 20, 2008 10:31 PM   Subscribe

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.

50 Cent's "Heat" does this (and it is one of his better lyrics):

When they window roll down and that A.K. come out
You can squeeze ya lil' handgun until you run out
And you can run for your backup
But them machine gun shells gon' tear yo' back up
And if God's on yo' side, shit I'm alright wit that
'Cos we gon' reload them clips and come right back

There's a Beastie Boys song where they "rhyme" commotion with commotion I believe. But I cannot remember exactly which one... at any rate, the Beasties do it at least once.

Sorry, the word was "commercial":

Everybody's Rapping Like It's A Commercial
Actin' Like Life Is A Big Commercial


-- 'Pass The Mic', The Beastie Boys

Allegedly it was an error and the original rhyme would have been 'rehearsal' in the second line but for whatever reason, the song was recorded with the same word twice.

In "The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll", by Bob Dylan:

Hattie Carroll was a maid of the kitchen.
She was fifty-one years old and gave birth to ten children
Who carried the dishes and took out the garbage
And never sat once at the head of the table
And didn't even talk to the people at the table
Who just cleaned up all the food from the table
And emptied the ashtrays on a whole other level,

Great! This is great!

GuyZero, I just marked yours as a "best answer" for 2 reasons. For one thing, the "commercial" rhyme was exactly what I was thinking of when I made this post: I always found that hilarious! Perfect for the Beastie's "dumb" facade/image. The 2nd reason was the backstory, which I'd never heard.

But really, all answers in a thread like this are "best", as long as they're accurate!

This is actually called an "identity rhyme" or just an "identity". It came up in last year's limerick thread.

I found Morrissey's best same-word rhymes. I have tip-of-my-tongue memories of these somewhere in the oeuvres of Bob Dylan, Trent Reznor, and even a pretty famous Tin Pan Alley song, but I can't dredge any of them up at the moment.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Related: kind of a variant phenomenon, when the rhymed word is punning on the first one, so it's clever, not careless. This example came up on my shuffle just a minute ago, but I think this kind of thing is fairly common in hip hop:

Not really a song, but the sestina is a form of poetry that relies on re-using the same words to end lines.

Kipling: Sestina of the Tramp-Royal:

Speakin' in general, I 'ave tried 'em all,
The 'appy roads that take you o'er the world.
Speakin' in general, I 'ave found them good
For such as cannot use one bed too long,
But must get 'ence, the same as I 'ave done,
An' go observin' matters till they die.

What do it matter where or 'ow we die,
So long as we've our 'ealth to watch it all --
The different ways that different things are done,
An' men an' women lovin' in this world --
Takin' our chances as they come along,
An' when they ain't, pretendin' they are good?

In cash or credit -- no, it aren't no good;
You 'ave to 'ave the 'abit or you'd die,
Unless you lived your life but one day long,
Nor didn't prophesy nor fret at all,
But drew your tucker some'ow from the world,
An' never bothered what you might ha' done.

But, Gawd, what things are they I 'aven't done?
I've turned my 'and to most, an' turned it good,
In various situations round the world --
For 'im that doth not work must surely die;
But that's no reason man should labour all
'Is life on one same shift; life's none so long.

Therefore, from job to job I've moved along.
Pay couldn't 'old me when my time was done,
For something in my 'ead upset me all,
Till I 'ad dropped whatever 'twas for good,
An', out at sea, be'eld the dock-lights die,
An' met my mate -- the wind that tramps the world!

It's like a book, I think, this bloomin' world,
Which you can read and care for just so long,
But presently you feel that you will die
Unless you get the page you're readin' done,
An' turn another -- likely not so good;
But what you're after is to turn 'em all.

Gawd bless this world! Whatever she 'ath done --
Excep' when awful long -- I've found it good.
So write, before I die, "'E liked it all!"

My favorite example: in Deep Purple's "Highway Star" they rhyme everything with everything...four times.

...
Oooh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power, big fat tyres,
and everything
...
Oooh she's a killing machine
She's got everything
Like a moving mouth, body control,
and everything
...
Oooh I'm in heaven again
I've got everything
Like a moving ground, an open road,
and everything
...
Oooh it's a killing machine
It's got everything
Like a driving power, big fat tyres,
and everything

Avril Lavigne pissed me off mightily for this by rhyming "dead" with "dead" -

"Let's talk this over, it's not like we're dead
Was it something I did? Was it something I said?
Don't leave me hanging, in a city so dead..."

Seriously some of the laziest songwriting it's been my misfortune to hear...and, ironically enough, the song's called My Happy Ending. You know what endings aren't happy? The endings of your lyric lines! Because you can't find a third word that rhymes with dead!

I don't know if this fits your template, but the most mindboggling one I've heard is in "The End is the Beginning is the End" by the Smashing Pumpkins, now stuck in my head thanks to that blasted Watchmen trailer:

Same-word rhyme in the same line. I guess this isn't entirely unexpected, considering the song also contains the tragically unfortunate phrase "the guns of love disastrous."

Even one of the greatest songs of all time is guilty of this:

Hey Jude

Hey Jude, don't make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Although, the rhyming patterns there are strange, rhyming "heart" with "start." So you could argue that they weren't really trying to rhyme better with better.

I always think of this when I hear a song with the same word making up both parts of a rhyme:
You do what you gotta do. We got in my truck and smoked a joint as we drove across town to the cancer center. On the radio Fred Durst was shouting,
Now I know you be lovin' this shit right here!
L. I. M. P. Bizkit is right here!
"Now that's some lyrical genius," I said, passing the joint to her. "Not many artists realize that words rhyme with themselves. Y'know? Any time you're stuck for a rhyme, you can just use the same word twice: it always works. Bon Jovi does that shit too."

"Bon Jovi played on behalf of Al Gore last night in Miami," she told me.

At that moment I hated Al Gore.

There is a Mexican pop ballad from the 70s that famously does this. The anecdote behind it is that the lyrics were written by a famous poet (Renato Leduc) who had some sort of challenge with some friends, under which one would give a word to the others and they had to come up with a poem in less than a minute.

That day he lost because the word they gave him was Tiempo, "time" in Spanish, which has no word in Spanish that rhymes with it (in consonance).

He was so put off by the way they made him look like a fool (his words), that he wrote a poem where he rhymed Tiempo to Tiempo in every line:

Sabia virtud de conocer el tiempo;
a tiempo amar y desatarse a tiempo;
como dice el refrán: dar tiempo al tiempo...
que de amor y dolor alivia el tiempo.

Aquel amor a quien amé a destiempo
martirizóme tanto y tanto tiempo
que no sentí jamás correr el tiempo,
tan acremente como en ese tiempo.

Amar queriendo como en otro tiempo
-ignoraba yo aún que el tiempo es oro-
cuánto tiempo perdí -ay- cuánto tiempo.

Y hoy que de amores ya no tengo tiempo,
amor de aquellos tiempos, cómo añoro
la dicha inicua de perder el tiempo...

it was later made into a very cheesy song and it became quite famous.

One of my favorites is the Lonely Island's "Ka-Blamo". Granted, they're a comedy group and they're trying to be funny, but it still fits your pattern

from the third verse, when they're describing terrible things that could happen to you:

When you're mining for coal and you forget what coal is
And you're sure to be fired because that's your job
When the mole's in your ass and you don't know where the mole is
You're screwed, man, there's a mole in your ass. JOB!

From this online prosody guide, I found that the term for it is an "identity rhyme"

Identity rhyme is simply the phonetic identity of two words. They can have the same spelling as well, but it is not required: for example, 'bat' as an animal and 'bat' as a club is an acceptable couple, as is 'all' and 'awl' or 'talk' and 'torque' and so forth; in poetry this sort of rhyme is often obtained by combination of two words, as in 'thinking' and 'th'inking', and Petrarca fairly often irks his readers with the 'l'aura' (th'air) 'Laura' (his mistress) match.

This device is often called 'rime riche' by Anglo-Saxon prosodists which, though, make quite a mess of its definition.

Of course, identity rhyme can be the most banal of devices, when the words concluding the two rhyming lines have the same sound, spelling and meaning; otherwise, it is an extremely refined, rare and difficult technique. Couples of words with the exact same sound but different meanings are called 'ambiguous rhymes'.

As identity rhyme conveys an idea of stillness bordering on obsession, its main use is in sextains, and examples of it are to be sought there; occasionally, though, examples of it are found in simple couplets: in Racine's 'Phèdre', Aricia, in love with Hyppolitus, who is in turn coveted by his own stepmother, blurts out:

Tu vois depuis quel temps il évite nos pas,
Et cherche tous les lieux où nous ne sommes pas.
(vv. 621-622)

Likewise the chorus in Eliot's 'Murder in the Cathedral' often refers to the immobility of destiny by this couplet:

That the wheel may turn and still
be forever still

Entire poems written in identity rhymes exist in archaic Italian poetry; the most notorious (and perhaps most successful) example is Guittone d'Arezzo's 'Tuttor, s'eo veglio o dormo', an amazing work composed of 36 ambiguous couplets, which are far more diffcult to contrive in Italian than they are in French or English. The poem starts:

Tuttor, s'eo veglio o dormo, [I sleep]
di lei pensar non campo, [I live]
ch' Amor en cor m'atacca. [attacks]
E tal voler ho d'òr mo, [gold, now]
com' di sappar in campo [field]
o di creder a tacca. [with a tag]
E bon sapemi, como [how]
eo n'acquistasse Como; [Como, a city]
ma' che diritto n'ò, [I have]
perch'eo non dico no [no]
di lei servir mai dì, [any day]
dica chi vol: 'Maidì!' [so help me god!]

(the square brackets contain the translation of the rhyming endings).


Anyway, that's what I dug up; hope this helps. (Every example of lyrics that I could think of, when I googled it, I found that I had misremembered the words. This has led to many happy discoveries in life. Thanks, faulty memory!)

I automatically thought of that Eminem song, "The Way I Am," which used to anger me greatly when it was on the radio.

Chorus:
And I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news everyday I am
Radio won't even play my jam
Cause I am, whatever you say I am
If I wasn't, then why would I say I am?
In the paper, the news everyday I am
I don't know it's just the way I am

It just seems so ridiculous because SO MANY words rhyme with "am."

Rock and Roll, by the Velvet Underground:

Jenny said when she was just five years old
There was nothin' happenin' at all
Every time she puts on a radio
There was nothin' goin' down at all,
Not at all
Then one fine mornin' she puts on a New York station
You know, she don't believe what she heard at all
She started shakin' to that fine fine music
You know her life was saved by rock 'n' roll
Despite all the amputations you know you could just go out
And dance to the rock 'n' roll station

The technique contrasts nicely with the unusual rhyme of "amputations" and "station" at the end of the verse.

Of the car that lost its 'ar'
Well, the car had lost its 'ar' in a pothole
On a street that lost its 'eet'
When the garbage collector with a missing 'ector' swept it up
With a broom that lost its 'oom'

My sister thinks it's lazy, I thought it was creative. Either way, it's a really catchy song.

DJ Format featuring Abdominal & D-Sisive (previously here and here). The track is called '3 Feet Deep'. The video is definitely worth a watch. Apologies for my late entry to the show.

The offending line:
And I could win a mic fight
By using the same line twice,
Ripping me is like a mic fight

Mona Lisa:

Mona Lisa, Mona Lisa, men have named you
You're so like the lady with the mystic smile,
Is it only cause you're lonely
They have blamed you?
For that Mona Lisa strangeness in your smile?
