Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> New Kids On The Block

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.

New Kids On The Block's, "Officially Over"
The Lyrics:
It's officially over, it's officially over
There ain't nothing you can say that can fix your wrong
Simply said, if there "ain't nothing" there is something, isn't there? (So glad to vent this somewhere, btw) :)

New Kids On The Block's, "Summer Time"
The Lyrics:
You wasn't lookin for a man
when you saw me in the sand
and Cause we was feeling young love
These are just more examples of bad grammar in pop music.
The first lyric obviously should be "You weren't looking for a man when you saw me in the sand but you fell for the boy from the city."
The Second lyric should be "Cause we were feeling young love."
