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...

Dan Fogelberg's, "Leader of the Band"
The Lyrics:
"... Living out this life I've chose and learned to know so well."
"... I don't think I've said 'I love you' near enough."
Why:
Should be "life I've chosen"
Should be "nearly enough" (Editor: It's Fogelberg. Not Folgelberg.)

Dan Fogelberg's, "Leader of the Band"
The Lyrics:
I am a/the living legacy TO the Leader of the Band...
