In the song I wrote a few years ago, I was always singing the last part of the final chorus as "I beg you, dear, please don't do you cry" (I will attach an audio example below). I didn't really think about it, it just fit rhythmically, and that was it for me. However, recently I tried to record it, and when I finally played it back, it occurred to me that it is not at all correct (as far as I know).
You can find the part of the song here: https://sndup.net/5n3v/d. Beware, it's really really far from the final product, it's really just in the beginning stage, so the sound quality is just bad.
Would you be so kind to help me with these several questions?
- Is there any way (or meaning) that would make this phrasing correct?
- If not, does it hurt your ears to hear it like that? (I know that there are lyrics that are not grammatically correct, so I ask if this is above the "limit")
- If not, does it convey the message? (e.g., I want to say "please don't cry")
I would really love to keep it that way because it really builds up before the final part of the song, but I don't want people to think I don't speak English, so I guess you see my dilemma here.
