Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Elvis Presley

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.

Elvis Presley's, "Hound Dog"
The Lyrics:
"You ain't nothing but a hound dog."
Why:
To negatives make a positive. It has to be : You ain't anything but a hound dog or You are nothing but a hound dog.

Elvis Presley's, "Little Sister"
The Lyrics:
Little sister, don't you do what your big sister done
