I am a big fan of phrases which comprise two words and rhyme and I have set out below some of my favourite ones which I do use in every day language.
Those who follow my blog will know that the name of the clown in the conversation piece ‘Interview with a clown’ is called Silly Billy.
I have posted this speaking practice lesson on my blog at around the same time as the one about ‘Tautograms’.

HOCUS POCUS Magical words
DREAM TEAM Successful sporting team at the highest possible level
PAY DAY When you are paid your wages
AWAY DAY A trip away from home, perhaps to a sporting event
FLOWER POWER Hippie lingo from the 1960s
SILLY BILLY Doing something stupid, not correct, funny
HANKY PANKY Sexual behaviour referred to in a joking way
HELTER SKELTER Topsy-turvy twisting funfair ride for kids and adults
EASY PEASY It’s so easy, not difficult
