Neither -nor
 
Hello everyone 
Please I am confused with the use of negative or positive sentences  with neither / nor .
Which of the following sentences is correct ? why?
*I can īt neither sing nor dance.     OR     I can neither sing nor dance. 
I don īt have neither uncles nor aunts.  OR      Ihave neither uncles nor aunts.  
Thanks .

In both cases the second example is correct. 
It should use neither ... nor in positive sentences. 
 
For further explanation on this google for double negative.
