"Respect" as written by Tyrice D. Jones and Tanisha Carey....
Someday I know
That there will come a time
That we all will have to come together as one
But we let this wall be the end
Let the mouth begin
Feel me

When I was coming up
I got old fashion love
Never talked back to Mama
Always knew where a kid's place was
I feel much frustration
Gotta teach this generation
To love one another again

If you want to learn (Respect)
You gotta give it (Respect)
You gotta show the whole world what it is
If you want to gain (Respect)
You gotta give (Respect)
Sharing it with everyone that lives

Father, Father watch
What you say and do
40 years from now
Your kids will be you
If you teach them
They'll know
The right way to go (Let them feel love)
What comes around
Goes around
Show them that


Watch what you say and do
Children they learn from you
Don't let the cycle end
Let's make the love begin
Hold on don't give up yet
Give love and give respect
