(Ooh) What you want
(Ooh) What you need
(Ooh) All I'm askin'
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home

Ain't gonna do you wrong (ooh) 'cause I don't want to (ooh)
Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)
I'm about to give you all of my money
Is to give me my profits
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah (just a little bit)
Ooh, your kisses (ooh)
And guess what (ooh)
All I want you to do (ooh) for me
Yeah baby (re, re, re ,re)
When you get home, now (just a little bit)

A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me)
A little respect (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
When you come home (re, re, re ,re)
And find out I'm gone (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
