The worst rhyming couplets in songs

Pop songs have played host to some of the finest expressions of the human condition ever created. Some have likened Dylan to Wordsworth and even Shaun Ryder was once compared to W.B. Yeats. However, occasionally even Bob can phone it in and many others have surely thought 'one more line to go in the verse...oh this'll do - it sort of rhymes'.

We have selected 50 of the very worst rhyming couplets ever written. Prepare yourself for some true abuse of the English language.
