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

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!

Izzat De 03:14
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

Queer It Up 04:19
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
