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

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, Aerosmith

Check out the index.

Get a Grip album at
Aerosmith's, "Jaded"
The Lyrics:
I'm the one that jaded you
Same case with the Police submission by that other guy ("Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"): you're supposed to refer to people as "who", not "what/that."
Submitted by: Jonathan S.
Aerosmith's, "Sweet Emotion"
The Lyrics:
Some sweet-talkin' mama with a face like a gent
Said my get-up-and-go must've got up and went
The line should have been "must've got up and gone." However, "gone" doesn't rhyme with "gent," therefore the bad grammar.
