    I was listening to the radio in the car this morning and an old Steve Miller number came on - Take the Money and Run - It's a fun little song and I like it, but it has this great verse of absolute dumb rhyming - check it out:

    Billy Mack is a detective down in texas
    You know he knows just exactly what the facts is
    He aint gonna let those two escape justice
    He makes his livin off of the peoples taxes

    Call me daft but that makes me LOL - I love stoopid rhymes - my all time favourite is from Sam Cooke's Wonderful World:

    Don't know much about algebra
    Don't know what a slide rule is for

    I mean it works, he makes it work and it's a great song - but if you look at the rhyme it is rather, well, stretched.

    Anyone else - silly lyrics not designed to make you laugh but they do or daft rhymes like these?
