In the land of doubles...


You can be a winner, but can never win;
You can be a sinner, yet never sin;
Don't eat apples, because they're red;
If it's green, you end up dead;
You can eat dinner, yet there is no diner;
You will get thinner, and your features finer;
You can say hello, but not say hi;
You can say good, but never bye;

There are snooze buttons, but no alarm clocks.
There are fluffy pillows, but no warm blankets.
There are abbeys, but no convents.
There are committees, but no councils.

there are messages, but no mail
there are vessels, but no sail
there are banners, but no cloth
there are apples, but no growth

There are Dressers, but no clothing
There are Brooms, but no dust
There are Eggs, but no Chickens
There are Greens, but no Emeralds
There is Glass, but no windows
There are Doors, but no Knobs
There are swimming pools, but no Lifeguards
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

*smack*
OW

There are Monkees, but no Michael Nesmith
There are Dragoons, but no dragons
There are Galleons, but no triremes

Stumped me for a while. :D
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

You can race a Corvette but not if it's a Chevy;
You can't jump a Hummer because they're far more heavy;
You can drive a Cooper but not if it's a mini;
I've seen them drive down hallways but only on the TV;
A Ford you can pass but not if it's a cruiser;
Your inattention fee could be a fiscal bruiser;

There are fuzzy bunny slippers, but no cute baby chick ones.
There are dill peppers, but not sour pickles.
There are copper pennies, but not silver dimes.
There are kangaroos, didgeridoos, and boomerangs, but not wombats, panflutes, or flying discs.
A balloon can be popped, but a blimp can't be deflated.
You can be funny, but you won't get a laugh.

Is this it?

There is tape, but no adhesion
There are criminals, but no crimes
You're in space, but they can hear you scream
You're purple, but not on wavelencths of 380nm-420nm
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

I would like to point out that...

My versions are correct, while yours are not.
There is Ketchup, but no mustard.
You can rock, but you cannot roll.
You can Jeckel, but you cannot Hyde!

Not yet getting there but we can hope
Rinse off the bubbles and put down the soap

Your assumption is right but not very hot;
Yellow mustard is fine but red ketchup is not;
You can totally roll but you can't ever rock
You cannot roll because its your socks.

Ok, I get it now, but I'm not going to smack myself on the forehead.  I'm going to smack you on the forehead.  This is the stupidest game ever.
