    And don't use LOL if you want to be a martyr for the grammatically correct.
    Why is that? LOL is an acronym.

    This is a casual forum, we aren't displaying how the English language is generally or the extent of everybody's linguistic ability.

    This is a forum, proper grammar is expected. We keep a certain standard for the pleasure of everyone. Let things slide and soon we'll have boards full of people who think 'its acceptable to talk to steevee like this disregarding proper syntax punctuation or capitalisation whcih just isnt very nice to read'

    I'm not sure if this is serious or not in all honesty.

    It is

    I have to look at the Queens English being bent over and buggered on Facebook, on my Phone, on Blog sites and in comment sections. Forums are the only bastions of English left open to the public where standards can be maintained. I expect them to be.

    Was there really any need? We all clearly knew what he meant.
    This is The Student Room. How silly to expect students to be able to use proper English.

    So true! Grammar is for understanding, not for humiliating people who don't want to read over there posts a few times before posting on a creative forum.

    Please don't excuse laziness.

    But it's a forum for students. Students are supposed to be intelligent and articulate, but then this forum quashed those illusions long ago for me.

    Using proper English doesn't require any effort at all, at least not for me. I don't know why you're all zealously defending stupidity :confused:

    That's not necessarily true, I mean wrote may not be a word but it's clear what its meaning is. Like worser, it's not a word but it makes sense. This is how new words are formed and languages evolve, you could say this guy is a revolutionary linguistic thinker as well as a decent lyricist.

    I couldn't agree more with this.

    I really don't see the problem, different people are intelligent in different areas. For example I know people with degrees in computer science who find it hard to spell, which is irrelevant because they excel in another area. Its pretty narrow minded to say anyone who finds it difficult/unnecessary to structure proper sentences on a forum isn't intelligent. It's also ridiculous and fairly elitist to expect everyone to be concerned about if their sentences on a forum are completely correct or not.

    I wasn't being entirely serious with that post, as I said just after. Seriously, people need to find something more worth while to worry about than grammar on an Internet forum.

    Awww thats really is a big complement. I'm looking at buying a electric guitar soon, so i'll probaly have a go at writing some guitar parts for it. But I won't be singing, I have a awful voice :mad:
    Don't say that you have an awful voice, because then you will. Rather, say that you've got a voice and you're going to improve it. Some of the most revered rockstars here in America don't sing at all, the just scream and they do terrific. Besides, confidence in yourself, and your lyrics, which are quite amazing frankly, will cover a multitude of sins.

    Very true - particularly when you consider that the "where do we go now?" in "Sweet Child o' Mine" wasn't originally supposed to be part of the song! :p:

    Just wondered what though? i'm to embarressed to show my familly/mates. This is my first ever attempt at it BTW.


    Roll a dice, toss a coin I'm your lover
    not your fighter. In the dark
    shadows of night you're a juggernaut of feelings that I can't
    fight.

    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war.
    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war.

    I believed you when said it was
    blue, but really its red. Its all black
    and white now, in the dark shade of night
    but in the morning it seemed
    alright, but you still gave me a fright.

    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war
    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war

    The birds Peck at the Juggernaut
    wreck in my head. You made me
    feel like I needed some Meds. But
    in reality you just went over my
    head.

    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war
    I fought the law, but i'm winning the war

    Its all over, but ill just have to
    move over. Like chalk on the cliffs
    of Dover. In the end I'll listen to the Roses, but itll all end up like
    moses. Not the bed of roses I feel.
    I am confident that this would record well and sell well.
    I am willing to get you into a recording studio so it can be recorded and released (if you want) on my record label - I Like Turtles (Stylized as ilik3tvrtl35). If you do not wish to record it or release it, I will happily buy the lyrics for it off of you, along with any musical tunes you make that go with it.

    Apart from wanting to have something to do with it, I think it is very catchy, and very valuable.
