Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Kool & The Gang

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, Kool & The Gang

Check out the index.

Kool & The Gang's, "Celebration"
The Lyrics:
We gonna celebrate
The wording should be "We're gonna celebrate." (The word "gonna" could be made into "going to" -- but "We're going to celebrate" would sound odd in this song.)

Kool & The Gang's, "Cherish"
The Lyrics:
I often pray before I lay down by your side
It should be "I often pray before I LIE down by your side," but "lie" doesn't rhyme with "pray."
