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

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, Foreigner

Check out the index.

4 album at
Foreigner's, ""Blue Morning, Blue Day""
The Lyrics:
"You hear me talk, but you don't hear what I say.
I guess it don't even matter."
It don't even matter should be it doesn't even matter. I suppose they needed three syllables in there - don't even- but wouldn't it have worked just as well to say "it doesn't matter" and drag the doesn't out a little bit to make up for the third syllable. There's never any good reason to say "it don't matter" unless you are trying to sound like an uneducated hick.
