"Eye Rhymes"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube.
If you see a word like "cover"
There's no worry
'Cause it surely rhymes with "rover"
Oh so sorry
(Oh no it don't)

Many languages have these confusions
They're called eye rhymes
They look just alike, like each other
But they don't rhyme

Words like wallet, mallet, ballet look so sim'lar
Oh it's so zany
There's so many
Oh, I've gone rhyme deaf
I'm turning a new leaf
With all these eye rhymes

Don't you know I'm so tough
That I don't cough
And they say that I am the bomb
My dough (my dough)
Causes troubles
That might put me into my tomb

Rhymes are just like birdies
Here in my hand, not in the bush
I've got to keep on making lots of sly eye rhymes
'Cause these eye rhymes are such a rush
(That's right)

Those eye rhymes like gone and done and tone
Eye rhymes twist your mind yeah

This crazy English language
With a word like "certain"
Makes your head spin that it doesn't rhyme
With the word "pertain"

And shouldn't "bury"
Rhyme with "jury"
It's just these eye eye eye eye rhymes yeah
Put down the food bowl
Or you'll hear the dog growl
Make sure you know your eye rhymes
Like yo' mama

Hour
For a tour
In the nighttime, can get real cool
But four (yes four)
Is much longer
So you better put on some wool

Rhymes are just like birdies
Flying high and still on the move
I've got to keep on making lots of sly eye rhymes
'Cause these eye rhymes are what I love

Like hood and blood and mood and flood and brood
Eye rhymes'll twist your mind

Now make an eye rhyme

P-p-pet the donkey, not the monkey
W-w-won the wager, got some lager
L-l-love the laughter from my daughter
Maybe later
Have some water

My Bose
Audio dose
While I'm sitting here on the couch
I lose (I lose)
All my troubles
'Cause I get so, so out of touch

Rhymes are just like birdies
Some are lovely, and some are foul
I've got to keep on making lots of sly eye rhymes
Whoa, 'cause they sure are full of soul

Whoa!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha
Eye rhymes...for youth
Ooh, I'm makin' these sly eye rhymes, down south

Mother
Can't be bothered
When the toner starts to running low
Father's
In a lather
'Cause he can't print nothin' now

I'm always making these rhymes
Letting the people watch
I keep on makin' these eye rhymes
Hey look, another match

Kids acting so naive
Kids givin' you a waive
Need to measure all their heights
Need to measure all their weights

Kids always wanna hear
Stories about a bear
Once upon a time they heard
Stories of a dragon's beard

Kids wanna pet a wolf
Kids wanna play some golf
Pack them all up in the Ford
Let's all sing "bird is the word"

Kids really like to tease
Kids never wanna cease
Give...them...eye rhymes!

Wow! This round really has a lot to do with the English language. Half the entries are about it (half meaning 2 because apparently Jamiroquai isn't cool enough to get other people involved) but I loved this parody it was very clever and at first I stumbled over it because I wanted to rhyme those fake rhymes but it didn't work!

Eye can give you top scores on this...Agree with Matthias...unique concept,.,.,very well done..

(Artistry) Eye rhymes! Love the idea, so frikin' clever it's insane. Like Matty, I had a lot of trouble reading this at first, but it became a sort of game. I like that aspect. I'll say this though, it would be nearly impossible to record this. It would be very hard as a vocalist to sing these lyrics and harsh to the ears of the listeners because they are expecting rhymes and it would really throw them off. But as far as this parody just being read, it's fantastic because we can see the words and how they LOOK like they should rhyme. A listener wouldn't get that visual.

Blaydeman hits it right on the head. One of those parodies that are too clever for their own good...right up my alley! Loved it. Funny though, I say "jury" and "bury" alike, must be a Midwest thing.

(Artistry) Yeah, the English language makes no damn sense. Fantastic parody here, good job making sure none of the "eye rhymes" could fall prey to accent troubles (although "tease" and "cease" are close enough to count as a real rhyme for me). 555!

What rhymes with rhyme besides rhyme? Dime? Here's three of them and slice each one in half, guess what you'll get? Exactly!
