Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> The Four Seasons

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, The Four Seasons

Check out the index.

"The Four Seasons - Greatest Hits, Vol. 1" album at
The Four Seasons', "Let's Hang On"
The Lyrics:
There ain't no good in our goodbye-ing.
First of all, "ain't" is nonstandard and "ain't no" is a double negative. It should be "There IS no good." Second of all, "goodbye" is an interjection and can also be a noun, usually in the plural, but it is not a verb. It should be "There is no good in our saying goodbye," but that line doesn't fit.
