An SAT prep book by Princeton Review recently tried to use one of Taylor Swift’s lyrics as an example of bad grammar — except the book got the lyric wrong.

The section labeled “Grammar in Real Life” uses several lyrics from different pop songs to highlight bad grammar and included a lyric from Swift’s “Fifteen” as an example.

Problem is, Princeton Review misquoted the lyrics. Swift fan Nava caught the mistake and posted it on her Tumblr.

The lyric in the prep book read: “Somebody tells you they love you, you got to believe ‘em.”
However, the actual lyric is: “Somebody tells you they love you, you’re gonna believe them.”
Swift took note of the mistake and posted it on her on Tumblr.

You had one job, test people.
It definitely pays to do a double check.
