Tom Lehrer's, "Oedipus Rex"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
And you may end up like Oedipus
I'd rather marry a duck-billed pledipus
Why They're Misrhymed:
Okay, this isn't really misrhymed. Tom Lehrer does a wonderful job coming up with very creative ways to rhyme. I merely wanted to say that I, and, I'm sure, other people, would be much happier if people who cannot say anything better than 'It doesn't rhyme' and variations on such would say nothing at all. As Tom Lehrer said, 'I feel that if a person can't communicate, the least he can do is to shut up'.

Tom Lehrer's, "Smut"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Stories of tortures
Used by debauchers
Why They're Misrhymed:
This is literally the only set of lines in any of Mr. Lehrer's songs which is supposed to rhyme but doesn't. Really, it is.
