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...

Seether's, "Misunderstood"
The Lyrics:
Observing all your weakness Puddles have more deepness Empty vessels clamouring across the sea
Why:
Gramatically, this is a mess. It should be "puddles are deeper", but, as that would mess up the rhythm of the song, Shaun had to resort to this unfortunate phrase.

Billy Joel's, "Allentown"
The Lyrics:
Every child had a pretty good shot
To get at least as far as their old man got
Why:
"Child" is singular; it should not be referred to to by the plural pronoun "their"
