No, "Oh Lordy" is just an old-time way of saying "Oh God." And "old folks" could mean his parents or simply refer to all the people he knew in his hometown.

Two of my great-grandfathers went from different parts of Germany to New York around 1850. One left because his father thought there was no future for him in Württemburg (one of the German kingdoms at the time). The other was working on cargo ships out of Bremen, and ...

1 is correct; 2 is incorrect. 3 and 4 are both correct, but 3 is more commonly used. In 5, "creation" probably means all over the world or all over the country. In this context, the songwriter is using "creation" to mean the created world or part of it.

If the entire sentence is "Multiply 800 by 11.5%" then your interpretation is right. Now ... how will you change 11.5% into a multiply-able number?

These, too, are quite awkward and the phrasing would not be used. Try these instead: 1. I wanted to drive a car, and she helped make it happen. 2. He didn't stop the children from playing ball in the street, and they broke the neighbor's window.

In these sentences, "get" and forms of "to be" seem to be interchangeable. I prefer the forms of "to be," but to use forms of "get" in sentences is okay. Read the examples here: http://www.learnamericanenglishonline.com/Green%20Level/...

Not much difference at all. Sentence 2 has more of a finality to it: he did his homework in the past, and he isn't doing homework anymore. Sentence 1 has a simultaneous quality to it. "I knew" it while he was doing it. (Both in the simple past tense.)
