Bert BS: Grammar Police/Pedant alert (137* d) RE: BS: Grammar Police/Pedant alert 25 Apr 16

One doesn't round UP, one rounds. Also one doesn't round DOWN, one truncates.

Anyway, the rules of grammar are different for songwriters where the use of the vernacular is almost de rigueur. Also, without the use of cliches Country music would die.

It is said (by whom I do not know) that one must listen to a song ten times before you can remember one line. However if you use a cliche, your song will be remembered on the first hearing, and if you can get that cliche in the title, you've got it made.
