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...

Traditional's, "Deck the Halls"
The Lyrics:
Don we now our gay apparel
Why:
It should've been "We now don our gay apparel" or "Do we now don our gay apparel".
Submitted by: JohnHowarth
Bon Jovi's, "Unbroken"
The Lyrics:
There ain't no angel that's coming to save me
Why:
I know that Jon's from New Jersey so that's just how people talk there but come on! He's 60 so he should know that it should be there isn't any angel that's coming to save me (it come out in 2020)
