Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> George Thorogood

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, George Thorogood

Greatest Hits: 30 Years of Rock album at
George Thorogood's, "Bad To The Bone"
The Lyrics:
When I walk the streets, kings and queens step aside.
Every woman I meet, they all stay satisfied.
"Every woman" is actually singular, because you say "every woman IS", not "every woman ARE". George should have said either "Every woman I meet, SHE stays satisfied" or "ALL the WOMEN I meet". Second of all, it's more common for the so-called "singular they" to be used when the gender is unknown. This is one of the rare cases where someone refers to a singular person as "they" despite the gender being identified.
