I've noticed this quite often from Disney sound tracks.

Lyrics are in a certain rhyming scheme - one line happens and the next line approaches the end of the line, but the last word subverts the rhyme.

I have looked at this question and feel it's related, but not the same effect.

Example: "In Summer" from Olaf in Frozen

Da da, da doo, a bubba bubba boo
The hot and the cold are both so intense
Put them together ? it just makes sense!

Rata ta ta dada dada da doo
Winter's a good time to stay in and cuddle
But put me in summer and I'll be a happy snowman!

Obviously, the expectation is that the word is "puddle"

It feels like a lyrical version of deceptive cadence, but I cannot find a succinct term for such an effect.

The linked question accepts the answer "Broken Lyric" or "Enjambment", which may still be the answer here, but I am certain that these are two different effects.
