Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Fall Out Boy

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, Fall Out Boy

Check out the index.

Evening Out With Your Girlfriend album at
Fall Out Boy's, "Sugar, We're Goin' Down"
The Lyrics:
We're going down, down in an earlier round
And Sugar, we're going down swinging
I'll be your number one with a bullet
A loaded God complex, cock it and pull it
Horribly mixed metaphor. The first two lines draw a boxing parallel ("goin' down swinging"), but then "number one with a bullet" compares the narrator to a hit song ("bullet" being the dot that chart listings put next to a fast-rising song). But then, to confuse things ever further, the narrator (sort of) refers to the other meaning of "bullet," and likens the relationship to some kind of bizarre combination of metaphysics and firearms. But I like the song anyway.

The Lyrics:
This ain't a scene...
AIN'T AIN'T AIN'T! Whoever started that trend should feel ashamed of themselves.
