Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Diana Ross

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, Diana Ross

Diana Ross', "Love Hangover"
The Lyrics:
I don't need no cure
I don't need no cure
Double negative. "Don't" and "no" cancel each other out so Diana is saying she DOES need a cure.

Diana Ross', "heme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going"
The Lyrics:
Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life has shown you?
OK, either leave that dangling preposition "to" off the first line or change it to something like this: "Do you know where you're going, Stu?" (or Lou or Sue) Then again, the whole thing is stupid because the next line is pronounced like this: "Do you like the things that life has show-en you?" What the heck is that? It was a dumb movie anyway.
