Find the lyrics for their third hit single ‘Mama’s Little Boy’ down below :

1986 mom was diagnosed with cancer
She was sent to hospital
Where chemo was the answer
Lately I was told
Brain tumour was the anchor
As her life clock ticked
I know it would inflict
All I could remember now was
I was in my father’s arm
Attending mom’s funeral
Wish that was a bad dream
But hey that was real
Raised by a single father
Here comes the rebel to sing his rebel song.

Rebel

With a cause

Chorus:-
Thong Nokbe avi do Lang
Chingrum ra chesong lo nang
[Thong Nokbe’s blood still run through our veins
Let’s unite and fight together]

2019 and am still chasing my dream mom
Wish you are around to watch me sing my protest song
I promise you mom I’ll fight against all the wrongs with my song
Cus my words are strong
I rebel against racism
I rebel against greed
I rebel against corruption
I rebel against crime
I rebel against taxation
I rebel against extortion
I rebel against robbery
Let me sing my rebel song

Rebel
With a cause

Chorus Repeat

Mic check
Mic check

Am a rebel against racism
Am a rebel against your greed
Am a rebel against corruption
Am a rebel against your politics
Am a rebel against communal hatred
I rebel so I exist

Rebel
With a cause

(Chorus Repeat)
