This morning on the radio, I heard America's hit "A Horse with No Name". As usual when I hear it, I wonder what the following sentence mean.
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
Wikipedia says that it is "oddly" written and also written under influence (while this explanation seems disputed afterwards). So because it is so odd for me as a non-native English speaker, I just never understand the meaning of that one sentence in the song.
What bugs me most is the seemingly triple negation as well as the "for to". What would a correct version of the sentence be?
