Hopelessly prescriptive subconscious grammarians? 50-step?

Earlier this evening, I heard a commercial on TV, and it included words from an old Mamas and Papas song ...

"You gotta go where you wanna go
Do what you wanna do
With whoever you wanna do it with..."

And, though I appreciate the free-spirit message of the song, my strongest immediate reaction was "... that's 'with WHOMever...'..."

Is it hopeless? Is there a 12-step program for over-prescriptive subconscious, automatic grammarians? 50-step?
