    Smile he don't and you was

    why do sometimes we hear you was instead of you were and he don't instead of he doesn't

    example: the new song from Fergie, fergalicious

    But I ain't promiscuous
    And if you was suspicious
    All that s*** is fictitious

    Thanks for the answer

    Re: he don't and you was

    It's a feature of many dialects of English, especially in parts of southern England. Some people see it as a sign of poor education. If you are learning English, don't use these forms yourself -- you'll get bad grades if you do. But many native speakers use these forms all the time.
