Silly little rhymes

weed's picture

Here's a little lightness and levity admist some of the turmoil of the board recently.

When I was young, my sister and brother-in-law used to challenge ourselves to come up with silly rhymes in this format:

I love you, I love you
I love you so well
If I had a peanut
I'd give you the shell

-Or-

I love you, I love you
My love for you so real
If I had a banana
I'd give you the peel

Silly little things, but we used to have so much fun coming up with them

As a fun aside, what can you come up with? Is doesn't necessarily have to be food related, but the twist about loving so much to give something people don't like, that was the kicker.

One more to get you started:

I love you, I love you
My love for you runs deep
If I had a chance
I'd give you the creeps

Rhymes

For all musicians..

I love you, I love you
My love is so able,
If I had a mic,
I'd Scratch your two turntables

Or For Matt..

I Love you, I love you
My love was for that grin
If I had to make fat thin
I'd do it with Atkins

Or for Sam

I love you, I love you
My love is like Bass strings
If It weren't so deep, think..
I'd be able to play things.

Or.. for weed

I Love You, I love you
My Love's on the edge
If I had the power
I'd rewrite the pledge
(Couldn't resist, sorry)

Or..
For Timpane..

I Love you, I Love you
My love is so groovy
You have no life outside of
This site, Church and Movies.

Keeping It Light

I love you, I love you
So be joyful and merry
And come this October
Get out and vote Kerry

Oh man, I was supposed to keep this light. I screwed up. Let me try again.

I hate you, I hate you
I'm so full of enmity
Where the heck were those
Weapons of MD?

SORRY! I'll try again. Besides, that rhyming structure wasn't the best.

I love you, I love you
Although your actions speak treason
That's what you get from
A security adviser named Condoleeza

These are TERRIBLE. Who's monitoring this blog? They let this kind of crap on here? All right, all right, bear with me folks, another short sonnet about to rip off...

I love you, I love you
I really adore ya'
At least I'm not living
Out in California

Love

On a birthday:
I love you, I love you
I really adore ya'
That's why this little rhyme's
All I got for ya'.

I love you, I love you
To me, you mean so much
I ran over something outside
Hey, was this your crutch?

I love you, I love you
I love rhythm and rhyme.
But I've problems with meter
So let me start over and try this again one more time.

I love you, I love you
Like candy and flowers
Like warts, rotting hedgehogs
And funeral bowers.

I love you, I love you
So much I get the shakes
Like tornados, backed-up sewers,
Floods, fires, and earthquakes.

This one's for Osama Bin Laden:
I love you, I love you
With no other clothing
Than a brand-new tuxedo
In your coffin, decomposing.

This is kind of fun, gotta think of more!

I love you I love you, with a

I love you I love you, with all heart and soul,
if I had a donut I'd give you the hole

My parents had the original children's album this song appeared on and I can't find it.

I love you I love you with all that is mine,
if I had a melon I'd give you the rind.

is all I can remember.

give me give me

give me give me give me a man with a big heart make him give me all them funky things give me give me a man with a big heart

Timothy Dan

Timothy Dan was a funny wee man
He kept all of his wealth in his pockets
Two buttons, A box, thew keys of two clocks
and the chain of his grandmother Margrets locket.

A big piece if string
is a most usefull thing
A watch without hands and a few rubber bands,
A broken down penknife with only one blade
and a little toy boat that his grandfather made.

You'd never believe
Hearing such a long list
That there's room in each pocket for one little fist
and you'd believe that the smallest of boys
could carry so much in his wee corderorys

very good 9 out of 10 for them !

Love You, Love You, I'd Give You...

My wife taught me these:
I love you, I love you,
With my heart and soul,
If I had a donut,
I'd give you the hole.

I love you, I love you,
I love you so well,
If I had a peanut,
I'd give you the shell.

I thought they were so cute I came up with a couple more:
I love you, I love you,
My love is so real,
If I had an orange,
I'd give you the peal.

I love you, I love you,
there'll never be troubles,
If I had champaign,
I'd give you the bubbles.

I love you, I love you,
I will perform great deeds,
If I had an apple,
I'd give you the seeds.

...these are so fun!

HAHAHAHA

Gadgets, model airplanes, and disgruntled lawyers
Registries, ukuleles, and panda pornographers
Debates about religion, politics, and how Paris sings
These are a few Barnsonian things!

Sam's toilet reviews and alternative sleep schedules
Josh Wheldon, eBay selling, and manufactured jewels
It all started with detangling from Mormon strings
These are a few Barnsoninan things!

Members from DC, Utah, and Minnesota
Talk of socialism, naturalism, and D.C. Al Coda
Actors, musicians, and geeks taking swings
These are a few Barnsonian things!

Ode to Ben

Ben is the guy
Did not get a mention
But unlike this writer
He'll at least get a pension

Ben went to law school
And sang op'ra as tenor
Played nice piano
And thats how I know Ben.. er..

He almost made me go
To UMBC
By taking the time out
To sell it to me

I went to St mary's
A bad choice, yes to start there
They didn't have ben
(Though I did see Tim Clarke there)

Ben was the wayward
That i knew the lesser
But I always admired
His songwriting, yes sir

And now that I know him,
I feel quite ashamed
I wrote up a poem
And left out Bens name

So just like the organ
In the House of Dreams bridge
I've turned up the volume
Much more than a smidge

I yell to the mountains,
the rivers and grass
HERE'S BEN IN A POEM
and I just kissed his ass.
