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

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.

Cher's, "The Way of Love"
The Lyrics:
When you meet a boy that you like a lot and you fall in love but he loves you not . . . etc. . . . Then what will you do when he sets you free just the way that you said goodbye to me?
Unless this song is about a lesbian whose girlfriend left her for a man (or a straight woman whose BF just came out) it makes no sense. Starting with the first line the perspective is that of Cher singing to (presumably) a woman, or women in general, about the dangers of fickle men. But at the very last minute the perspective changes to Cher talking to her ex-lover (presumably a man). Additionally, the whole song is a few poorly constructed run-on sentences. This my vote for worst song ever.
