Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Cara Dillon

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, Cara Dillon

Check out the index.

After the Morning album at
Cara Dillon's, "There Were Roses"
The Lyrics:
It's Scott and McDonald and the likes of you and I.
It should be "It's Scott and McDonald and the likes of you and ME." According to the rules of proper grammar, when the word "of" is followed by a pronoun, it should take the accusative form of the pronoun.
