Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Joe Tex

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, Joe Tex

Joe Tex - 25 All Time Greatest Hits album at
Joe Tex's, "Ain't Gonna Bump No More"
The Lyrics:
She wanted to get on down, still wanna get on down
I told her to go on and leave me alone
I ain't gettin' down
You done hurt my hip once
Pretty obvious; you can see that even the title is lazily worded (by today's standards the song may offend some people due to the reference to an unnamed overweight person that is mentioned in the lyrics). Despite the somewhat bad grammar, overall it's not a bad song for its time.
