Here’s the Lyrics:
Central to our home are women, always there to assist (Chokri)
She smiles, she laughs, she cries because she cares (Angami)
Been living all these days not chasing her dreams (Rengma)
As she sacrifices herself for the family (Khezha)
All the women are sick of this inequality(Konyak)
Hey men, let’s understand that we are all human being and equal (Poula)
Hey folks, let’s wake up, stand high and say (Khiamniungan)
She is unique, she is cool, She is strong (Lotha)
Let them exercise the power, small or big (Zeme)
Out of the womb, we came to be equal (Sangtam)
We all Nagas are united for women empowerment (Ao)
It’s not about a he or a she, him/her (Liangmai )
We’re all equally important in his eyes (Pochury)
If he can she can, just like that (Chang)
She will shine bright given her equal opportunity (Kuki)
She got a soft voice (Phom)
She’s going to melt those millions hearts (Yimchunger )
She’s not perfect but she’s the best (Kachari)
Her endurance is matchless (Sumi)
Hey folks let’s wake up, stand high and say
She is unique, she is cool, she is strong
Let them exercise the power, small or big
Out of the womb, we came to be equal
We all Nagas are united for women empowerment
