"Respect" as written by Otis Redding, Elliott Ness and Speedy Dee....
What you want.
Baby I got it.
What you need do you know.
I got it.
All I'm asking is

For a little respect when you come home
(Just a little bit) Hey baby (Just a little bit)
When you get home.
Hey Mister I ain't gonna do you wrong while you're gone.
Ain't gonna do ya wrong cause I don't wanna.
All I'm asking is for a little respect when you get home
(Just a little bit) Hey Baby ( A little respect)
When you get home (Just a little bit)

Yeah I'm up to giving all my money
And all I'm asking in return honey
Is to give me my proper's when you get home.

(Just a little bit)Yeah baby
(A little respect) When you get home
(Just a little bit)
Yeah oh you're kisses sweeter than honey.
But guess what, so is my money.
And all I want you to do for me is
Give me some respect when you get home

(Just a little bit) Hey baby
(A little respect) Give it to me
(Just a little bit) When you get home.
Now r-e-s-p-e-c-t Find out what it means to me.
Are-e-s-p-e-c-t
Take care of TCB.
R-e-s-p-e-c-t A little respect
(Just a little bit)
Hey baby (A little respect)
All the time you keep on trying (Just a little bit)
(A little respect) you're running out fool (Just a little bit)
And I ain't lying
(A little respect)

Re re
Re re
Re re re Respect
(Just a little bit) When you come home
(A little respect) And remember
(she says something I can't decipher)
Not alone I've got to have a little respect
(A little respect) Ooh baby (Just a little bit)
Hey baby (A little Respect) R-e-s-p-e-c-t
