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.

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."

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.
