Tongue-tied and twisted

Just when it looked like Yoko...

Learning to fly Lyrics
Artist(Band):Pink Floyd

Can't keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit,

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air,

"You're fired". Not "your fired". (Short for "you are".)

you /yu; unstressed yʊ, yə/
Pronunciation[yoo; unstressed yoo, yuh] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation pronoun, possessive your or yours, objective you, plural you; noun, plural yous.

I had the same reaction. It seems as if slang is taking over the planet.

Now we're in grammar class. Dictionary.com Unabridged. Now you're incorrect with stating "you mean". What subjects do you teach?

You should have written "You're incorrect." This means "You are incorrect". "Your" means "something belonging or pertaining to you". Get it right!

And it's "grammar". Not "grammer".
