Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Index

Song lyrics aren't supposed to be a fountain of perfect english, but on the other hand some are just so atrocious, they need to get called out. We're not looking for sentance fragments or the word ain't since there are too many instances to count.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

John Mayer's, "Waiting On The World To Change"
The Lyrics:
So we keep on waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
Why:
It should be "waiting FOR the world to change". "Wait on" means serve, John.

Lorde's, "Team"
The Lyrics:
The cups are broke
Why:
'Broke' is a past tense verb, not a past participle. So it should be 'The cups are BROKEN'.
