Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Queen

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, Queen

Check out the index.

"Queen - The Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits I, II & III" album at
Queen's, "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy"
The Lyrics:
I'd like for you and I to go romancing.
Freddie Mercury uses the subjective pronoun "I" in the object of the sentence. You wouldn't say,"I'd like for I to go romancing." He should've said, "I'd like for you and me to go romancing." Or even better yet, "I'd like for us to go romancing." I'm not even going to try and figure out if he's using the word romancing correctly in this sentence.

Queen's, "Khashoggi's Ship"
The Lyrics:
They was all so sexy
We was bad, we was blitzed
Strangely, the song also contains the line "We WERE phased."
