"A Little Respect" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
I tried to discover a little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain from breaking my heart
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason,
you know you're making me work so hard
That you give me no soul
I hear you calling
Oh baby please give a little respect to me.

And if I should falter,
would you open your arms out to me?
We can make love not war,
and live in peace with our hearts
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
What religion or reason could drive a man
to forsake his lover?
Don't you tell me no soul.
I hear you calling
Oh baby please,
give a little respect to me.

I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason,
you know you're making me work so hard
That you give me no. Soul.
I hear you calling.
Oh baby, please give a little respect to me.
Oh baby, please give a little respect to me.

    General CommentSimply about a guy who does everything to keep his girlfriend happy and she walks all over him. He's probably tired of it but is too nice to say anything, so he lets her treat him bad. He's probably insecure about the relationship anyway...

    General CommentI think this is a great cover of the this song. It was originally done by Erasure, but i still like this version much better. Wheatus kicks ass.

    General Commentfucking brilliant cover for this song, only thing which rruined it was the distortion being prolonged at the ending... Personally, i belive this song could also mean a guys incredible amount of effort put in to pursue a girl only to always get layed off (plays hard to get)
    And the feelings he has for her are sooo strong, it hurts
    eg."Give a little respect ....tOoooooo MEEEEEEEE!!!!!!"
