Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Groovejet (Sohpie Ellis Bextor)

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, Groovejet (Sohpie Ellis Bextor)

Groovejet (Sohpie Ellis Bextor)'s, "If This Ain't Love"
The Lyrics:
If this ain't love
Why does it feel so good?
Well, Sophie doesn't like poor grammar because she is British, double-negatives like "If there ain't no milk" would be treated as double negatives.

In this stance, it should be "If this isn't love".

Note: In America, many cases of "If there ain't no ...", the meaning should be "If there isn't (or aren't) any...". So anyone is still saying "We weren't doing nothing", that's what they meant: "We weren't doing anything".
