"Respect" as written by Otis Redding, Gregory Brown and Elliotte Miller....
What you want, baby I got
What you need, you know I got it
All I'm askin' is for a little respect
When I come home

I'm out to give you all my money
But all I'm askin' in return, honey
Is to give me my proper respect when I get home
Yeah, baby when I get home

I ain't gonna do you wrong while you gone
I ain't gonna do you wrong 'cause I don't want to
All I want you to do to me
When you come home

Ooh, your kisses sweeter than honey
But guess what, so here's my money
All I want you to do for me
Is give me some here when you get home
Yeah, baby when you get home

R E S P E C T find out what it means to me
R E S P E C T take out T see P
A little respect
