Even more rubbish song lyrics

Follow-up to Rubbish song lyrics from Kiran's blog

Perhaps more galling than these plain bad lyrics is the problem of those songwriters (especially rappers) who delight in rhyming a word with itself in the next line. For this point I draw upon "Dreams" by The Game.
The first two lines go as follows:

I woke up out dat coma two thousand and one
Bout the same time Dre dropped two thousand and one

This is clearly plain lazy and in The Game's efforts to name-drop as many rap/rnb names throughout this song, it becomes almost like a list. More to the point anyway is that I doubt his english teacher would approve of this. Even I remember the first thing about rhyming lines is not to make them rhyme by using the same word twice because then it doesn't actually sound like a rhyme, just that the track jumped back a line.
