    Smile see me got photo???

    Dear Teachers,

    See me got photo photo
    Photograph of you


    This is a part of lyrics "Straight to hell"(The Clash my favorite British band!)
    I have no idea but I somehow assume it might mean:
    "See photo of you I got "

    Would someone please help me?
    Thank you.

    I'd interpret it as:
    See- I have got a photo of you.

    Thank you so much, Tdol!!

    May I ask you a little more about it?

    Is the subject case "Me" interchangeable with the nominative case "I"?

    Does it sound normal if I say something such as:
    "Me got some money"
    instead of
    "I got some money"
    ?

    Thank you in advance

    No. You can't learn English from pop songs.
    Pop songs do not use standard grammar, vocabulary, morphology, pronunciation, semantics or pragmatics.

    Thanks so much for your advice, Raymott

    Yes, I also agree that studying plain English with such lyrics of pop songs is kind of silly and I normally donít try to learn from them.
    This question was just from my curiosity.
    When a question arises, first I refer to my own dictionaries and grammar books which I keep using since my high school days.
