Track Name: Lingering Wine
Breathe, Let it swirl
I'm getting drunk on the scent of my girl.
Decant, the dregs of our fights
An incantation into the night

I drink deep in your eyes
Dazzled by ruby red time
Forever I will know
Your kisses like lingering wine
Bouquet is my delight
Infusing the zest of your bite
The dreams that I chase
Longing for your sweet aftertaste.

The touch of your tongue
Drizzling sparkling rhymes
Forever I will know
Your kisses like lingering wine
Robust, rich as the sea
I am getting drunk on your ecstacy
This love, it ain't a crime
And your sweet kisses
Linger like wine

Sweet sweet kisses linger like wine
Sweet sweet kisses linger like wine
Track Name: Girls You Rule
I see you every morning
Running around here and there
I wonder if you are giving
Yourself a little care

Ooh, you need some you time
Go have fun and play
Don't feel so sorry
You"re a queen , not a prey


Girls , you rule ,the world
Just keep this in your head
Come on Move your moves
Break the rules
And do things in your way


You are so worthy
You don't need to prove yourself
No need to work your ass off
All night and all day

Ooh, you need some you time
Go have fun and play
Don't feel so sorry
You're a queen , not a prey


Girls , you rule ,the world
Just keep this in your head
Come on Move your moves
Break the rules
And do things in your way

Girls , you rule ,the world
Just keep this in your head
Come on Move your moves
Break the rules
And do things in your way


Aaah You are not a back up plan go prove them wrong
Aaah Don't be taken for granted ,you are the new strong

Oohh Ooo Oooh Ooooh

Girls , you rule ,the world
Just keep this in your head
Come on Move your moves
Break the rules
And do things in your way

Girls , you rule ,the world
Just keep this in your head
Come on Move your moves
Break the rules
And do things in your way

Girls , you rule , the world
Girls , Hey Hey!
Track Name: Izzat De
We live in the world where we have these
Jhoothe rishtey ohdey lafde
We can stop all these differences of
Jaativaad , Dharmavaad , kaumvaad,
Make love not war

Iss jung se hue sab tang , koi nahi hai kisi ke sang
Phir bhi ladne ki thaani hai, Bekaar na jaaye jawani ye
Ummeedein khushiyon ke rang
Layengi phir se tarang
Apne hi sharton pe jeena hai , Insaaniyat ko jagaana hai

Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Power ke dum pe tu nahi jeet payega mujhse
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Sexism ko baaju mein rakh
Then talk to me bilkul dhang se
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Jaat paat ke dum pe tu nahi jeet payega mujhse
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Bas kyunki main hun different
You can't judge me
Do you hear me?

Mere bhi sapne hain
Armaan bhi apne hain
Darr ke na rahungi main
I'm a flame , I have a name
Haan sabke sapne hain.
Armaan bhi apne hain
Darr ke na rahenge ab hum
Don't play us like a game

Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Power ke dum pe tu nahi jeet payega mujhse
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Sexism ko baaju mein rakh
Then talk to me bilkul dhang se
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Jaat paat ke dum pe tu nahi jeet payega mujhse
Izzat de Izzat de
Main kam nahi hun tujhse
Bas kyunki main hun different
You can't judge me
Do you hear me?

We can change this world where we have these
Jhoothe rishtey ohdey lafde
We will stop all these differences of
Jaativaad , Dharmavaad , kaumvaad,
Make love not war
Track Name: Queer It Up
Got it all worked out , I'm feeling fine
Always knew in my heart ,it was just a matter of time
A toast to celebrate our love and pride
Dance like rainbow unicorns, Catch the funky vibe

Get on the floor and show your moves
Freak on the beats with your sexy grooves
We won the fight...its our right to queer it up

Wiggle and boogie down
We're gonna rip right through this town
Tonight is the night so we're gonna queer it up


Been in the dark for way too long
It's time to break out into the light and sing this freedom song
Young or old everyone, spin your body around
Lose yourself to the rhythm of life and go high on the sound.

Get on the floor and show your moves
Freak on the beats with your sexy grooves
We won the fight...its our right to queer it up

Wiggle and boogie down
We're gonna rip right through this town
Tonight is the night so we're gonna queer it up
