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

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, Bread

Anthology album at
Bread's, "Baby I'm-A Want You"
The Lyrics:
Baby, I'm-a want you
Baby, I'm-a need you
You're the only one I care enough to hurt about
"Baby, I want you" and "baby, I need you" wouldn't have fit the rhythm of the song.

Bread's, "It Don't Matter To Me"
The Lyrics:
It don't matter to me
If you really feel that you need sometime to be free
The correct grammar would be "It doesn't matter to me."
