Grammar: You and I vs. You and Me

I’ve noticed a lot of people getting You and I and You and Me confused. So here’s a very simple rule to help you remember when to use each phrase.

You and I = We

e.g. “You and I are going to the store” (WE are going to the store)

You and me = Us

e.g. “Mom wants you and me to go to the store” (Mom wants US to go to the store)

Make sense?

If you still have trouble remembering, think of the Lifehouse song “You and me.” It’s a song about US.
