Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Bryan Adams

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, Bryan Adams

18 Til I Die album at
Bryan Adams', "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You"
The Lyrics:
Everything I do, I do it for you (same as title)
The "it" is unnecessary, since "Everything I do" IS the "it" in question. (In other words, "Everything I do" is the clause which is defines what "I do for you." This line should simply be "Everything I do I do for you."

Bryan Adams', "Run To You"
The Lyrics:
I got my mind made up, I need to feel your touch…
This should definitely be “I have got my mind made up…”

Bryan Adams', "Run to You"
The Lyrics:
She says her love for me could never die But that'd change if she ever found out about you and I
Should be you and me. I know that "me" doesn't rhyme with "die" but I can feel my 7th grade English teacher rolling in her grave every time I hear it.
