Songs often use slang and colloquial English that you should understand, but never use in formal situations.

Nevertheless, a lot of current slang is found in songs. Let's clarify some things:

Makjun Sangkut

Slang is a subset of a language used by one particular group of people. It consists of words and expressions which cannot be found in a common dictionary and they can be distortions of existings words or entirely invented terms. It is used in informal situations. It is not appropriate in formal situations. It is important to say that slang and informal English are not the same. Some slang can be used in formal situations and some of the words that can only be used in informal situations are not slang.

There are many situations in everyday life where informal English is allowed, even preferred. Some examples include of these informal situations are: while playing sports, while studying with friends, at a bar, with close family members, on the phone with frinds, among others.

Slang is used by all kinds of groups of people who share situations or interests. The group which uses these words is a minority and often use slang to set themselves apart  or to make it difficult for ordinary people to understand them. Sometimes singers use these slang words to catch rhythm or to make the words more fluent. 

Here you will find the translation into normal English of the most common colloquial words used in songs (and also on television and movies!):

To form the plural of nouns is easy if you pluralize REGULAR NOUNS, that is to say, those nouns that only add -S, or those nouns that take their plural following some rules.


1. TAKE -S

But it is not so easy when they are IRREGULAR NOUNS. that is to say, those nouns that take their plural in an irregular way (no rule is applied in them). Here there is a list of the most common irregular nouns:
