Post Re: Top 5 Sondheim Rhymes
Of those, I think "clock turn/nocturne" is the best. Otherwise, for years I've been advocating "chameleon/really un-(derneath)" as his best rhyme.

I think the thing with Sondheim rhyme is that not are they only great as pairs, but they are also great in context, like the entire British Admiral's part in Please, Hello. "Enjoy/annoy/destroy" are perhaps not the most extraordinary set of rhyming words, but put in the context, they are genius.

Edit: I'll fill in when I remember.

Chameleon/really un-(derneath)
Shepherd's pie peppered/with actual shepherd
