hi

my question, my friend like singing , what i noticed in her song that she says:

babe! when ya visit me, tell me what ya see?

is this correct, or should it be:

babe! when ya visit me, tell me what do ya see?

, or is it ok to violate grammar in lyrics and songs!

thank you

sorry,double post
Song lyrics are an unending violation of English, but this is not one-- the phrase, if you have transcribed it accurately, represents the pronunciation of what you see, which is the noun-clause object of tell in the sentence: When you visit me, tell me what you see.

so it can be so but with you instead of ya?
Both you and ya are fine here; the latter (as I said) is just a transcription of the pronunciation of the former.
thank you very muchEmotion: smile
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
There's something else: I think the question mark in '...tell me what ya see?' is out of place.
