Don't blame him for a deliberate non-rhyme. All other verses in the song had rhymes in the equivalent lines, but it is a legitimate poetic device to discard an expected rhyme for purposes of emphasis, most likely at the end of a song.

LOL
but we have to evaluate the rhyme by other standards that just how closely the sounds line up

edit: also the vowel sounds in 'fall' and 'sword' are a close if not exact match in British English so you can't really say anything about it

Preferences in rhyme seem to run the gamut - but in a rhyme-poor language like English, poets are given a wide berth. Basically as long as the mind registers it as a rhyme, it counts! Also, look at the whole phrase not just the last word!

I'm afraid it is because 'fried' is a flashing neon sign of forced rhyme

Mozambique - cheek/speak/peek. I'm amazed he didn't also throw in meek/weak/leak/beak/geek/reek/squeak/teak/Zeke and make it a ten minute masterpiece.

And then there's the questionable content. Mozambique was far from being a romantic holidays resort in the 1970s.

I guess the tune is fine though.

It’s like the new lyrics were meant for this thread:
Memorize these lines / and remember these rhymes
***cringe*** :roll:

Bella refers to certain outings of Tangled - I think 'just so you know/walking to and fro' is even worse!

Then she opened up a book of poems
And she said, "Just so you'll know
Memorize these lines, and remember these rhymes
When you're out there walkin' to and fro"
