Rhymes. - 03/26/13 02:35 AM

I have a few rhyming ditties as questions and think that follow up rhymes from you as your answers would compliment them quite nicely. So get your songwriting dictionary ready and put a rhyme after the rhyme.
A quick explanation before you begin. The following rhymes all contain clues to the two word answers. The first clue will be indicated with inverted commas and the second with quotation marks, i.e. 'clue one' and "clue two", but not always in that order. You have to come up with either a synonym or a word relating to the clues, these two words will rhyme with each other, not with the clues, and will form your final answer so make sure to type them in in the correct one, two order. For example:
The 'panda' had his very own "seat". Panda=bear and seat=chair, final answer should be 'bear chair'.
I am hoping the clues will prove to be fairly generous as I would like for this to be more entertaining than brain draining. Good luck. I give you the number of letters and the first letter of the words.

-1.A barman was told by his master
He must try to work a bit 'faster'

7.A 'hot beverage' may warm your cold feet
