Allan Sherman's, "Sir Greenbaum's Madrigal (after 'Greensleeves')"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I chanced upon him one morn when he'd recengtly resued a maiden fair
Oh, why art thou so forlorn, Sir Greenbaum, is thy heart heavy laden?
Why They're Misrhymed:
I can't believe that a talented satirist like Allan Sherman couldn't do better than this. I assume 'maiden' is supposed to rhyme with 'laden'; but then, why isn't it at the end of the line?

Allan Sherman's, "The Ballad Of Harry Lewis"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
I'm singing you the ballad of a great man of the cloth
His name is Harry Lewis and he worked for Irving Roth
He did while cutting velvet on a hot July the Foth
Why They're Misrhymed:
That's a real groaner! Allan really stretched it to produce a rhyme there. :p
