Rhyme Crime: The 20 Worst Rhymes In Pop Music History

#10. Jimmy Buffett, "Margaritaville"


 I blew out my flip flop,
Stepped on a pop top.


The song originally appeared on an album titled Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes, possibly the worst rhyming album title of all time. After the above line, Jimmy asks if a woman is to blame. For what? A song that sounds like it was written by a drunk seven year-old?


#9. Peter Gunz, "Deja Vu"


"Niggas in the Bronx,
Call me Lex cause I push a Lex,
And I rock a Rolex,
And I lounge on Lex',
And I love sex.


If Borat wrote a hip hop song, this is what it would sound like. Mr. Gunz, you were ahead of your time. Wait, you weren t kidding?



#8. Ram Jam, "Black Betty"


 Whoa, black betty,
Ram a lam, whoa, black betty,
Black Betty had a child,
Ram a lam, the damn thing gone wild,
She said,  I'm worryin' outta mind,
The damn thing gone blind.


From the Hall of Fame of Dumbass Lyrics, this song is also famous for having the worst guitar solo of all time.


#7. Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Snow"


 Hey oh... listen what I say oh
I got your hey oh, now listen what I say oh


These lines were almost definitely written while under the influence of the titular substance. If only they had been watching Scarface when they wrote this, they might have come up with another slang term for cocaine that rhymes with say oh.


#6. The Smiths, "Reel Around the Fountain"


 But take me to the haven of your bed,
was something that you never said,
two lumps, please,
you're the bee's knees.


This song is about gay sex. Or bees. Or tea. We re not sure, but we feel completely miserable now.
