Mensagem:  Eddie, I understand.  The English grammar in songs is often quite bad, especially rock songs.  Movie dialogues are also often written in terrible grammar, and you will also read/hear this in interviews of people who surely know better.  Is it just a bad case of "the jitters". "nerves"?  One of the most common mistakes are of the "him and I" variety.

She gave the Senator and I the document we needed.  I?  Nobody would ever say "She gave I the document", but they will routinely say "She gave him and I".  What can one do?
