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...

The Moody Blues', "Is This Heaven?"
The Lyrics:
I want to be there when
The age of love is come again...
Why:
It sounds like it was written by a pre-schooler! The correct form is "the age of love HAS come again"!
Submitted by: Chowder
Ray Parker Jr's, "Ghostbusters"
The Lyrics:
I ain't afraid of no ghost.
Why:
Clear double negative. He's essentially saying "I'm afraid of a ghost". (Note: "Ain't" is actually a contraction for "am not", so it's used correctly here.)
