"Respect" as written by Otis Redding, Elliott Ness and Speedy Dee....
What you want, honey, you got it
And what you need, baby, you've got it.
All I'm asking, is for a little respect
When I come home, hey now
Hey hey hey, yeah now

Do me wrong, honey, if you want to
You can do me wrong honey, while I'm gone.
All I'm asking, is for a little respect
When I come home, ooh, yeah now
Hey hey hey, yeah now

Hey little girl, you're so sweet, little honey
And I'm about to, just give you all of my money
And all I'm asking, hey, is a little respect
When I come home, hey hey
Hey hey hey, yeah now

Hey little girl, you're sweeter then honey
And I'm about to give you all of my money
But all I want you to do
Is just give it, give it, respect
When I come home, hey hey
Hey hey hey, yeah now, respect

It's what I want from you
Respect is what I need
Respect is what I want
Respect is what I need

Got to, got to have it
Got to, got to have it
Got to, got to have it
Got to, got to have it

Talkin'
Give us, give us, give us, give us
Give us, give us, give us, give us
Give us some baby, everything I need
