Beyonce K. - Irreplaceable

Nobody says that D

I made a statement in the very beginning, sir. That it is a colloquaial language, yet it doesn't need to be that grammatically good. However, for our brothers or sisters who are learning English (some of them are thru songs), I think this would be quite useful..


yep, i agree with you. shakehand2
let's just learn from the errors. hehehe

"You must not know 'bout me
You must not know 'bout me
I can have another you by tomorrow
So don't you ever for a second get to thinking you're irreplaceable"
(Beyonce - Irreplaceable)

in good grammar, it should be >>> "So don't you ever for a second get to think you're irreplaceable"

actually,
in literature, which is including song
there are no need such good grammar in the lyrics...

there are many reason for that,
one of the example is, a singer/singers just want to try to keep it in rhyme...

take a look at rapp music,,,
no need for lyric to be in order grammatically

in my opinion
it's not a big deal, c'mon grammar on songs? what kind of joke is that?
the one that need grammar-checked are newspaper,speech,or school books

song,poetry,etc doesnt need to following grammar

like joker said "why so serious?"

c'mon guys, haven't you read the message on page 1?

the TS had already consider your thoughts
this one is just for fun, because it's interesting to find an error(s) in english song

don't you know realize that a lot of people especially teenagers are learning english from a song.
It would be better if they knew that some part of the lyrics are wrong grammatically

it's not an exhibition to everyone to show that you're some kind of grammar junkie or what..
it's just to show you that there is another fun way to learn english

yea i know it,already read what ts said on page 1
but,in indonesian, there's nothing like grammar check on poems,or songs, it's beccause both of them are different from what we used to write in bahasa.
they have their own characteristic, song is not about grammar,but about the beauty and art inside it

Just wanna clear up a few things.

The whole "like a child misses their blanket thing" - the English language doesn't have a gender-neutral pronoun, and since the rise of feminism many people refuse to use just male pronouns to describe something that goes for both male and female, they resort to using "they/their/them". It is grammatically incorrect, yes, but there's a good reason behind it.

The use of "don't" instead of "doesn't" in many songs, especially in rap/hip hop began with "black" English (i.e. the type of English dialect spoken by African immigrants and their descendants). If you want to know more about this dialect I suggest you to read the book "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett, it's about black slaves, a very interesting book.

Using "me" instead of "I" at the end of sentences is grammatically incorrect, but most people use it because let's be honest, it's easier that way.

Yeah. Don't wanna be a know-it-all, just wanna explain a bit about these things.

It's correct. If you're using the word "if" to suppose something that is impossible, you use "were". e.g. If I were you

dude, do you ever know american slang ? i mean those songs you mentioned are all american right ? it's a very common thing among americans. take a look on black people (don't mean to be racist), they are all known to use a slang in a song for example a rap song, so you still think that's a grammatical errors ? come on slang is really really common in all languages just like ours
