Here she comes! (the lady is walking toward the speaker)

I find this structure ungrammatical. Shouldn't the correct construction be "She comes here" or "She is coming here"?

What do you think?

Thanks in advance!

No, it's an idiomatic structure...

There goes my money!
Oh, there you are. Where have you been?
California, here we come...

Emotion: smile
Kooyeen, thanks for your reply.

What does 'there goes my money' mean by the way? The speaker just lost his/her money, I'd think.

Hi,
yeah. From Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English:

Used when you are losing something, for example an opportunity or money, as a result of something that has just happened: There go our chances of winning the championship.

Thank you, Kooyeen.

What about "Here comes the lady all of us have been waiting for!" It is not wrong, just as "Here she comes" is correct.

Hi,

The music traditionally played at weddings in English-speaking countries is called "Here Comes The Bride".

Hi Clive

"Here come the bride and the bridegroom" confuses even Singaporean teachers. They think it should be "Here comes the bride and bridegroom."
Hi,

Traditionally, the groom enters the church first and waits. The bride then enters and comes to the groom, while 'Here Come The Bride' is played.
