Riddle me this

I was told a riddle a few years ago and it's been driving me nuts ever since. Unfortunately, the riddle has become even harder since I don't remember a very important part of it. Since I don't remember it well, it's a two-parter: "_____" rhymes with only three words in the English language. Name them. First, what is the blank word; second, what are the rhyming words. I got two of them right off the bat, but the third one never came to me. Help?

All i can think of is what word ends in 'gry' besides angry and hungry.

If so the answer is there is no third word: the trick is in the very particular wording of the riddle.

Faulty memory of mine. That's no riddle! No wonder I never got the answer. Thank you both very much

"Orange" for the first word maybe?
