    These are speaking English slang contractions

    gotta = got to
    wanna = want to
    gonna = going to

    other similar words are

    shudda = should have
    wudda = would have
    cudda = could have
    otta = ought to

    Some people also call these reduced forms. 'gotta,wanna,gonna' are typically how "Got to, want to, and going to" are spoken (at least where I am from). Here is a list of some other common ones:
