Lyrics
(ooh) What you want
(ooh) Baby, I got
(ooh) What you need
(ooh) Do you know I got it?
(ooh) All I'm askin'
(ooh) Is for a little respect
When you come home
(just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit)
When you get home
(just a little bit) mister
(just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do you wrong while you're gone
Ain't gonna do you wrong (ooh)
'cause I don't wanna (ooh)
All I'm askin' (ooh)
Is for a little respect
When you come home (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit)
When you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I'm about to give you all of my money
And all I'm askin' in return, honey
Is to give me my profits
When you get home (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

Ooh, your kisses (ooh)
Sweeter than honey (ooh)
And guess what? (ooh)
So is my money (ooh)
All I want you to do (ooh) for me
Is give it to me when you get home (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah baby (re, re, re ,re)
Whip it to me (respect, just a little bit)
When you get home, now (just a little bit)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, T.C.B.

Oh (sock it to me, sock it to me,
Sock it to me, sock it to me)
A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me,
Sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin' (just a little bit)
You're runnin' out of foolin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) 'spect
When you come home (re, re, re ,re)
Or you might walk in (respect, just a little bit)
And find out I'm gone (just a little bit)
I got to have (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
