Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> The Bee Gees

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, The Bee Gees

Check out the index.

Number Ones album at
The Bee Gees', "Paying the Price of Love"
The Lyrics:
How did you find there was somebody more than you want me? I never understood...
The Brothers Gibb songwriting style was to write the song's melody first, then make the lyrics fit the melody. Sometimes the grammar didn't work. This is a more extreme example - it should have correctly been more like "How did you find there was somebody you want more than you want me?."
