Imagine me and you I do
I think about you day and night
It's only right
To think about the girl you love
And hold her tight
So happy together

If I should call you up invest a dime
And you say you belong to me
And ease my mind
Imagine how the world could be
So very fine
So happy together

I can see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me
So happy together

I can see me lovin' nobody but you
For all my life
When you're with me baby the skies'll be blue
For all my life

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me
So happy together

Me and you and you and me
No matter how they toss the dice
It had to be
The only one for me is you
And you for me

So happy together
So happy together
How is the weather
So happy together
We're happy together
So happy together
Happy together
So happy together
So happy together

Mistakes (part 3)

Undoubtedly the most common mistake i encounter. Contrary to almost ubiquitous misuse, to be 'nauseous' doesn't mean you've been sickened. It actually means you possess the ability to produce nausea in others. E.g., That week-old hot dog is nauseous.

Unless yuo are frighned of them, you shouldn't say you're 'anxious to see your friends'. You are actually 'eager' or ' excited'. To be 'anxious' implies a looming fear, dread or anxiety. It doesn't mean you're looking forward to something.

It isn't a word. 'Impact' can be use as a noun (e.g., The impact of the crash was severe) or a transitive verb (e.g., The crash impacted my ability to walk or hold a job.) 'impactful' is a made-up buzzword, colligated by the modern marketing industry in their endless attempts to decode the innumerable nuances of human behavior into a string of mindless metrics. Seriously, stop saying this.

Contrary to common misuse, 'moot' doesn't imply something is superfluous. It means a subject is disputable or open to discussion. E.g., The idea that commercial zoning should be allowed in the residential neighborhood was a moot point for the council.

'Nor' expresses a negative condition. It literally means 'and not'. You're obligated to use the 'nor' form if your sentence expresses a negative and follows it with another negative condition. 'Neither the men nor the women were drunk' is a correct sentence because 'nor' expresses that the women held the same negative condition as the men. The old rule is that 'nor' typically follows 'neither' and 'or' follows 'either'. However, if neither 'either' nor 'neither' is used in a sentence, you should use 'nor' to express a second negative, as long as the second negative is a verb. If the second negative is a noun, adjective, or adverb, you would use 'or', because the initial negative transfers to all conditions. E.g., He won't eat broccoli or asparagus. The negative condition expressing the first noun (broccoli) is also used for the second (asparagus).

Many writers seem to assume that 'whether' is interchangable with 'if.' It isn't. 'Whether' expresses a condition where there are two or more alternatives. 'If' expresses a condition where there are no alternatives. E.g.,  I don't know whether I'll get drunk tonight. E.g. I can get drunk tonight if I have money for booze.

'Less' is reserved for hypothetical quantities. 'Few' and 'fewer' are for things you can quantify. E.g., the film has fewer than ten employes. E.g., the film is less successful now that we have only ten employes.

The word 'farther' implies a measurable distance. 'Further' should be reserved for abstract lengths you can't always measure.  E.g., i trew the ball ten feet farther then Bill. E.g., the financial crisis caused further implication.

'Since' refers the time. 'Because' refers to causation. E.g., Since I quit drinking I've married and had two children. E.g., Because I quit drinking I no longer wake up in my own vomit.

Contrary to popular usage, these words aren't synonymous. A 'disinterested' person is someone who's impartial. For example, a hedge fund manager might take interest in a headline regarding the performance of a popular stock, even if he's never invested in it. He's 'disintersted'. I.g., he doesn't seek to gain financially from the transaction he's whitnessed. Judges and referees are supposed to be 'disinterested'. If the sentence you are using implies someone who couldn't care less, chances are you'll want to use 'uninterested'.

This is a tough one. Words like 'rather' and 'faster' are comparative adjectives, and used to show comparison with the preposition 'than', (e.g., greater than, less than, faster than, rather than). The adjective 'different' is used to draw distinction. So., when 'different' is followed by a preposition, it should be 'from', similar to 'separate from,', 'distinct from', or 'away from' e.g., My living situation in New York was different from home. There are cases where 'different than' is appropriate. If 'than' operates as a conjunction. E.g., Development is different in New York than Los Angeles. When in doubt, use 'different from'.


Here's a trick to help you remember. 'Affect' is almost always a verb (e.g., Facebook affects people's attention spans) and 'effect' is almost always a noun (e.g., Facebook effects can also be positive). "Affect' means to influence or produce an impression - to cause hence, an 'effect'. 'Effect' may be used as a transitive verb, which means to bring about or make happen. E.g., My new computer effected a much-needed transition from magazines to Web porn. There are similarly rare examples where 'affect'  can be a noun. E.g., His lack of affect made him seem like a shallow person.


Too many people claim something is the former when they actually means the latter. For example, it is not 'ironic' that 'Barbara moved from California to New York, where she ended up meeting and falling in love with a fellow Californian.' The fact that they're both from California is a 'coincidence'. 'Irony' is the incongruity in a series of events between the expected results and actual results. 'Coincidence' is a series of events that appear planned when they're actually accidental. So, it would be 'ironic' if 'Barbara moved from California to New York to escape California men, but the first man she ended up meeting and falling in love with was a fellow Californian.'

'Who' is a subjective pronoun, along with 'he', 'she', 'it', 'we', and 'they'. It is used when the pronoun acts as the subject of the clause. 'Whom' is a objective pronoun, along with 'him', 'her', 'it', 'us', and 'them'. It is used when the pronun acts as the object of the clause. Using 'who' or 'whom' depends on whether you are referring to the subject or object of a sentences. When in doubt, substitute 'who' with the subjective pronouns 'he', 'she', e.g. Who loves you? He loves me. Similarly, you can also substitute 'whom' with the objective pronounss 'him', 'her', e.g.. I consulted an attorney whom i met in New York. I consulted him.

'That' is a restrictive pronoun. It is vital to the noun to which it is referring. E.g., i don't trust fruits and vegetables that aren't organic. Here, i am referring to all non-organic fruits and vegetables. In other words i only trust fruits and vegetables that are organic. 'Which' intruduce a relative clause. It allows qualifiers that may not be essential. E.g., i recommend you eat only organic fruits and vegetables, which are available in area grocery stores. In this case you don't need to go to a specific grocery stores to obtain organic fruits and vegetables. 'Which' qualifies, 'that' restrict. 'Which' is more ambiguous however, and by virtue of its meaning is flexible enough to be used in many restrictive clause. E.g., the house, which is burning, is mine. E.g., the house that is urning is mine.

'Lay is a tansitive verb. It requires a direct subject and one or more objects. Its present tense is 'lay', e.g., i lay the pencil on the table; and its past tense is 'laid', e.g., yesterday i laid the pencil on the table. 'Lie' is a intransitive verb. It needs no object. Its present tense is 'lie', e.g., the Andes mountains lie between Chile and Argentina; and its past tense is ;lay', e.g., the man lay waiting for an ambulance. The most common mistakes occurs when the writer uses the past tense of the transitive 'lay', e.g., i laid on the bed; when he/she actually means the intransitive past tense of 'lie', e.g., i lay on the bed.

They are similar but there is a diference. 'Continual' means something that always occuring, with obvious lapses in time. 'Continuous' means something continues without any stops or gaps in between. E.g., the continual music next door made it the worst night of studing ever. E.g., her continuous talking prevented him from concentrating.

The word 'envy' implies a longing for someone else's good fortunes. 'Jealousy' is far more nefarious. It is a fear of rivalry, often present in sexual situations. 'Envy' is when you covet your friend's good looks. 'Jealousy' is what happens when your significant other swoons over your good-looking friend.

'May' implies a possibility. 'Might' implies far more uncertainity. 'You may get drunk if you have two shots in tem minutes' implies a real possibility of drunkness. 'You might get a ticket if you operate a tug boat while drunk' implies a possiblity that is far more remote. Someone who says 'I may have more wine' could mean he/she doesn't want more wine right now, or that he/she 'might' not want any at all. Given the speaker's indecision on the matter. 'Might' would be correct.

In order to employ proper usage of 'bring' or 'take', the writer must know whether the object is being moved toward or away from the subject. If it is toward, use 'bring', if it is away, use 'take'. Your spouse may tell you to 'take your clothes to the cleaners'. The owner of the dry cleaners would say 'bring your clothes to the cleaners'.
