From the lyrics to Another Brick in the Wall:
What is the grammatical construct in leave us kids alone or leave them kids alone?
Teachers leave them kids alone.
Hey teacher leave us kids alone
Is it short for leave them, the kids, alone and leave us, the kids, alone, respectively? I have seen the construct with them [noun] in other contexts, too, but can't find examples as it's hard to google.
Is this proper English? Are there phrases with a similar grammatical construct?
