GUEST,John Hill Grammar in Songs (117* d) RE: Grammar in Songs 04 Jan 01

I didn't expect this much responce. Its reassuring to know that there are some others out there like me that get niggled sometimes with the choice of words in songs.
I'm quite aware that some old folk songs were written by uneducated people and contain a lot of vernacular speech. I'm sure we can all accept that... but people are better educated these days.... and I'm talking about recent songs... maybe I should have stated that at the beginning.
One that really gets to me is the use of it/he/she don't instead of doesn't grrrr.
