"Respect" as written by Otis Redding, Gregory Brown and Elliotte Miller....
What you are
Baby I got it
What you need
'cause baby you know I got it
All I'm asking
Is for respect when you get home
Yea baby
When you get home
Just a little bit

I ain't gonna do you wrong
When your gone
Ain't gonna do you wrong
'cause I don't want to
All I want you to do for me is respect when you get home
Alright now
When you get home
Alright

I'm about to give you
All my money
I'll I'm asking in return honey
Is to give me my proper when you get home
Alright, when you get home

Your kisses are sweeter than honey
And guess what
So is my money
And all I want you to do is give it to me when you get home
Alright now
When you get home
A lil' respect

R-E-S-P-E-C-T Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T Take care d see me
Oh a little respect
