    Grammar doubt from Michael Jackson's MV

    Hi everyone,

    I have got on here again. I found an uttering---"what is you are going to do" by the Egypt King, in Michael Jakson's MV---"Remember The Time". You can affirm it by watching this MV.

    Yet, positively we may use "what are you going to do" more often.

    So a doubt came upon me---is it gramatically correct for "what is you are going to do“?

    If it is correct, why? Could you anylize it for me?

    In my opinion, I hold it as wrong, thinking it should be"what is the thing you are going to do" .


    Thank all of you for your kind favors.

    All the best.

    'What is you are going to do?' is wrong. 'What are you going to do?' is correct.

    I just watched the vedio,
    the Egypt king said ironically: " And what is it you're going to do ?"

    Hmm,I listened it again and more attention to it, apparently it indeed is as you said, Ruba. I might have left "it" out carelessly.


    Anyway, great thanks to you.
