Grammatical mistakes in lyrics to popular songs that really should have been picked up before recording

Inspired by the recent thread on bad rhyming, and the reference to Neil Diamond's "Play Me", what's the most glaring grammatical error you've heard in a popular song? One where someone in the recording studio should have piped up: "Hey, that's wrong, isn't it?" but didn't. As a reminder, Diamond sings: "Song she sang to me, song she BRANG to me." I nominate Ace of Bass's "Life Is A Flower" : "Please Mr Agony release them for a while, LEARN them the consequence of living without life." I also nominate Frank Ocean's "Super Rich Kids": "We must be high, the help don't stare, they just walk by, they must DON'T care." I realize it should also be "the help doesn't stare" but only really glaring, stupid errors that reveal the singer's idiocy, please.
