Grammar- double negative

by Gabriel

Hi Ola,

I wanted to know if the sentence below is grammatically correct? The sentence is from a song by Johnny Cash.

"Everybody won't be treated all the same"

Shouldn't it actually say:

"Not everybody will be treated the same" ? Or something to that effect?

Thanks for your time,
