   There´s also a grammar/usage point here; as Marcio have noticed, the 'going to' is

usually spoken 'gonna' in everyday/informal conversations (just like we see in pop songs).   That´s why Ricky Astley (Astley ?, don´t matter much, I am in a hurry now, you can Google it) sang "...Never gonna give you up..." in his 80's  hit.

    So, I recommend you go for 'gonna' instead of 'going to' when it comes to music.
