    Can someone make me understand sentence posted in the thread?

    Here is the sentence-
    "Last time I saw you, you was only a baby"
    Why "was" is used here with "you"?
    Thank you.

    It's someone speaking in sub-standard English. Native speakers don't always use good standard English.
