This music is by Leonard Cohen, Every body knows. Here I have written the lyrics and if you want to download it click here.
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded 
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed 
Everybody knows that the war is over 
Everybody knows the good guys lost 
Everybody knows the fight was fixed 
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking 
Everybody knows that the captain lied 
Everybody got this broken feeling 
Like their father or their dog just died 

Everybody talking to their pockets 
Everybody wants a box of chocolates 
And a long stem rose 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows that you love me baby 
Everybody knows that you really do 
Everybody knows that you've been faithful 
Ah give or take a night or two 
Everybody knows you've been discreet 
But there were so many people you just had to meet 
Without your clothes 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

And everybody knows that it's now or never 
Everybody knows that it's me or you 
And everybody knows that you live forever 
Ah when you've done a line or two 
Everybody knows the deal is rotten 
Old Black Joe's still pickin' cotton 
For your ribbons and bows 
And everybody knows 

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming 
Everybody knows that it's moving fast 
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman 
Are just a shining artifact of the past 
Everybody knows the scene is dead 
But there's gonna be a meter on your bed 
That will disclose 
What everybody knows 

And everybody knows that you're in trouble 
Everybody knows what you've been through 
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary 
To the beach of Malibu 
Everybody knows it's coming apart 
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart 
Before it blows 
And everybody knows 

Everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows 
That's how it goes 
Everybody knows 

Everybody knows

1.  Third conditional

 

"If I would have known about the party, I would have gone to it."  

 

This is INCORRECT, although commonly used, especially in American English.

The correct form is:

If + had + past participle, would + have + past participle

"If I had known about the party, I would have gone."  

This is CORRECT.


2.  Don't vs Doesn’t

"He don’t care about me anymore."

This is INCORRECT.

Doesn't, does not, or does are used with the third person singular - words like he, she, and it.

Don't, do not, or do are used for other subjects.

"He doesn’t care about me anymore."  

This is CORRECT.


3.  Bring vs Take

"When we go to the party on Saturday, let’s bring a bottle of wine."

This is INCORRECT.

When you are viewing the movement of something from the point of arrival, use “bring”:

"When you come to the party, please bring a bottle of wine."

This is CORRECT.

When you are viewing the movement of something from the point of departure, use “take”:

"When we go to the party, let’s take a bottle of wine."

This is CORRECT.


4.  Fewer vs Less 

Sign at the checkout of a supermarket: “Ten items or less”.

This is INCORRECT.

You can count the items, so you need to use the number word “fewer”.  These nouns are countable.

"Ten items or fewer."

This is CORRECT.

If you can’t count the substance, then you should use “less”.  These nouns are uncountable.

"You should eat less meat."

This is CORRECT.


5.  However

"We were supposed to go to the dance last night, however, it was cancelled because of lack of interest." 

This is INCORRECT.

A semicolon, rather than a comma, should be used to link these two complete sentences:

"We were supposed to go to the dance last night; however, it was cancelled because of lack of interest." 

This is CORRECT.

It should be noted that there ARE situations in which you can use a comma instead of a semi-colon:

"The match at Wimbledon, however, continued despite the bad weather."

This is CORRECT. 

There is only one complete sentence in this example.  It is not a compound sentence.


6.  Have vs Of

"I never would of thought that he’d behave like that."

This is INCORRECT.

It should be would have:

"I never would have/would’ve thought that he’d behave like that."

This is CORRECT.

It’s the same for should and could:

"He should of come with me."

This is INCORRECT.

"He should have/should’ve come with me."

This is CORRECT.

"She could of had anything she wanted." 

This is INCORRECT.

"She could have had anything she wanted."

This is CORRECT.


7.  Double negative 

"I'm not speaking to nobody in this class."

This is INCORRECT.

Since 'not' is a negative, you cannot use 'nobody' in this sentence:

"I'm not speaking to anybody in this class."

This is CORRECT.


8.  Present perfect

"He has took the train."

This is INCORRECT.

The correct form for the present perfect is:

would + have + past participle

* "He has taken the train."

This is CORRECT.


9.  Went vs Gone 

"I should have went to school yesterday."

This is INCORRECT.

The correct form is:

should + have + past participle

"I should have gone to school yesterday."

This is CORRECT.


10.   Its vs It's

"Its going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is INCORRECT.

It’s is the contraction of It is:

"It’s going to be sunny tomorrow."

This is CORRECT.

"What’s that?  I can’t remember it’s name."

This is INCORRECT.

Its is a possessive pronoun that modifies a noun:

"What’s that?  I can’t remember its name."

This is CORRECT.

Speech Fillers (Pause Fillers / Oral Fillers) are parts of speech which are used to fill in empty spaced in your speech. You might use fillers when you need to think about a word or how to wrap up your sentence. Fillers are usually expressed as pauses such as uhlikeer and well.

Linguists believe if your speech is peppered with pause fillers, it disrupts the enjoyment of your presentation and the appreciation of your message. However for most people, pause fillers do become somewhat of a ‘plague’ when left unchecked. They give the impression that the speaker is lacking in confidence and ill-prepared. Hence it is imperative that we strive to minimize them as much as we can.

A Complied List of Pause Fillers:

But (non-connective)
I think
I mean
You See
You Know
Ahs
Umm
Lahs
Well
Actually
LoL (laughing)
Yeah
Right
Alright
I guess
And (non-connective)
Say (non-connective)
Basically (non-connective)
Ers
Erms
Others (Dialects)
