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.

ACDC's, "Who Made Who"
The Lyrics:
The title and chorus "Who Made Who".
Why:
Not only is it a question that lacks a question mark, it also uses the word "who" for the second (object) pronoun which should actually be "whom".
Submitted by: James McPherson
Bryan Adams', "Run To You"
The Lyrics:
I got my mind made up, I need to feel your touch…
Why:
This should definitely be “I have got my mind made up…”
Submitted by: Johnny Shepperd
One Direction's, "History"
The Lyrics:
You and me got a whole lot of history
Why:
It should be "You and I have a whole lot of history." There's no good reason it isn't that way.
Submitted by: Rick O'Shea
Teach-In's, "Ding-a-Dong"
The Lyrics:
When you think it's all over
They let me down
Why:
Awkward jump from second person to first.
Submitted by: RJSchex
A-ha's, "Take on me"
The Lyrics:
Take on me
Why:
This is subtle, but "on me" is not a prepositional phrase, but a phrasal verb "take on" with a pronoun direct object. In the song, it's sometimes wrong "Take on me" and sometimes right "Take me on".
Submitted by: David Shobe
Bruce Springsteen's, "Hungry Heart"
The Lyrics:
Don't make no difference what nobody says, ain't nobody like to be alone.
Why:
Where to begin. It's just a big word salad.
Submitted by: Bill Berg
Winnie The Pooh's, "Have You Honey"
The Lyrics:
Have you honey, have you honey
Why:
It should've been "Do you have honey".
Submitted by: JohnHowarth
Sesame Street (TV)'s, "Me Lost Me Cookie at the Disco"
The Lyrics:
Me lost me cookie at the disco (Please come back)
Me lost me cookie in the boogie music
Me lost me cookie at the disco
Me want it back (I want it back)
Me want it back again
Why:
It should be this: I lost my cookie at the disco, I lost my cookie in the boogie music, I lost my cookie at the disco, I want it back (I want it back) I want it back again. But Cookie Monster prefers to say "me" instead of "I" or "my".

The Ghastly Ones', "SpongeBob ScaredyPants"
The Lyrics:
If nautical chills be something you wish
Why:
"Be" should be "is" or "are".
Submitted by: JohnHowarth
Lauv's, "I Like Me Better"
The Lyrics:
I like me better when I'm with you
Why:
"Me" should be "myself"
Submitted by: JohnHowarth
