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

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, Index

Here's a couple of the most recent entries...

Meg Myers 's, "Funeral"
The Lyrics:
I'll hit you when you're down on one knee
I'll give you my heart when I'm six foot deep.
Why:
Sorry, Meg, but the correct answer is "six FEET deep".
Submitted by: Sheila Oh
Blue Oyster Cult's, "Burning For You"
The Lyrics:
Burn out the day, burn out the night
I can't see no reason to put up a fight .
Why:
"can't see no" is a double negative. Proper diction would be "I can't see a reason" or "I see no reason."
