I may have posted about this before, but I am once again irked at today’s popular music and its blatant disregard for language. Take Rhianna’s stupid new song I keep hearing on the radio, for instance. The chorus lyrics are as follows:
“Tomorrow way too far away,
And we can’t get back yesterday,
But we young right now.”
Where, may I ask, are the verbs in the first and third lines? Nowhere.
