Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Little Anthony & The Imperials

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, Little Anthony & The Imperials

Check out the index.

We Are the Imperials / Shades of the 40's album at
Little Anthony & The Imperials', "Goin' Out Of My Head"
The Lyrics:
I can't think of anything but you
It should be "I can't think of ANYONE but you." "ANYONE" is used in reference to a person. "ANYTHING" should be used in reference to a thing. Zachary Breaux made the same mistake in his version of the song several years later.
