Lyrics

Rebellious (Reggae Mix)

Written By: Jessica "Omilani" Alarcon

Chorus: Some say that I'm Rebellious - And I like it

I speak my mind and I talk real loud
I bring the party I'm the life of the crowd
Complacency is the death of me
I'll be myself but keep integrity
I mean it's no rules - no rules for me
I've got to be, I've got to be free
Because I'm (Rebellious)

CHORUS

Feel like confetti exploding in the air
Cool as the breeze as it's blowing through my hair
Never would I just blend in the scene
Forget the rules - we gonna paint this town green

I mean it's no rules - no rules for me
I've got to be - I've got to be free

CHORUS

If it means I've got a mind of my own
If what you're saying is how I'm acting is grown
Then rebellion can take me over now
You've got to see - you've got to see how
I'm so rebellious (hey) and I like it
