Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Bruce Springsteen

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, Bruce Springsteen

Check out the index.

Bruce Springsteen's, "Glory Days"
The Lyrics:
Well there's a girl that lives up the block
It should be "WHO lives up the block," not "THAT lives up the block." "Who" is used to refer to a person. "That" is used to refer to a thing.

Bruce Springsteen's, "Hungry Heart"
The Lyrics:
Don't make no difference what nobody says, ain't nobody like to be alone.
Where to begin. It's just a big word salad.
