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
