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...

Eric Clapton's, "Before You Accuse Me"
The Lyrics:
Your Mama said "Son,
Don't call my daughter no more."
Why:
"Don't", then "no more" - double negative.
Submitted by: Chowder
Lou Rawls', "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine"
The Lyrics:
Oh I don't wish you no bad luck baby
Why:
It should be either "Oh I don't wish you ANY bad luck baby" or "Oh I WISH you no bad luck baby." If Lou Rawls says he doesn't wish me NO bad luck, obviously he DOES wish me SOME bad luck.
