Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Heart

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.

Heart - Greatest Hits album at Amazon.com
Heart's, "City's Burning"
The Lyrics:
She want to get high, and he want to get paid
Why:
In each case, the "want" should have a suffix, either "-s" or "-ed".

Heart's, "Jupiters Darling"
The Lyrics:
actually it's the album title only. The name "Jupiter" should have an apostrophe between it and the possessive "s".
Why:
Our English teachers always got on us over mistakes like that.
Submitted by: I Sail the Astronomy Domine
Heart's, "Who Will You Run To"
The Lyrics:
Who's gonna love you baby as good as I
Why:
It should be "Who's going to love you as well as I do?" Even that is awkward. Maybe it should be "Who's going to love you as well as I do?"
