Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Red Hot Chili Peppers

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, Red Hot Chili Peppers

Blood Sugar Sex Magik album at
Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Get On Top"
The Lyrics:
You're ill
But I'm iller
Last time I checked, Iller a) is a river in Bavaria, Germany, and b) means "provinces" in Turkish. The correct use of the term would be "more ill" or "the most ill".

The Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Me And My Friends"
The Lyrics:
Me and my, me and my, me and my, me and my me and my friends.
First of all, "Me and my friends" is a sentence-fragment. Second of all, it should be, "My friends and me," if I'm not mistaken, "Me" should come second.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers', "Snow (Hey Oh)"
The Lyrics:
Hey oh
Listen what I say, oh
It's an incomplete sentence. It should be "listen TO what I say."
