Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> System Of A Down

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, System Of A Down

System Of A Down's, "Aerials"
The Lyrics:
'Cause we are the ones that wanna play...
We are the ones that wanna choose...
Both the "that"s should be "who"s, as things and animals, not people, are referred to as "that", Serj. It's not likely that this is sung from the point of view of birds or dogs. Then, the "that" would be correct.

System Of A Down's, "Lonely Day"
The Lyrics:
The most loneliest day of my life
It would be the loneliest day of my life. NO MOST.

System Of A Down's, "U-Fig"
The Lyrics:
You and me should go outside...
This one's fairly subtle. It should be, "You and I should go outside."
