Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Amy Winehouse

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, Amy Winehouse

Check out the index.

Back to Black album at
Amy Winehouse's, "Just Friends"
The Lyrics:
I'll never love you like her.
I strongly suspect that what she means is that which would be expressed with correct grammar as "I'll never love you like she". Because of grammatical case of pronouns, that last statement is short for "I'll neve love you like she does", in all likelihood what Amy means to imply. But similarly because of case of pronouns, "I'll never love you like her", if grammatically correct, could only be short for "I'll never love you like I love her". That is probably not what Amy means to say, and it certainly doesn't fit the song's context.
