Lyrics
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

Now I'm a lover, I'm not a fool
Girl, I wanna trust you and believe you
I've been out here, I've been to school
They'll go on to jive you and deceive you

I know how to treat a woman
And I know what you want from me
So if you want my lovin', all of my lovin'
You know how you gotta be

Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you
Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you

Shoo doo doo doo doo doo
Shoo doo doo doo doo
Shoo doo doo doo doo doo
Shoo doo doo doo doo

Takin' chances, I'm never through
So it must be something I believe in
Baby, I sense something in you
You're not the kind who'd love a boy to leave

I don't want that kind of woman
Who would take more than she would give
So if you want my lovin', all of my lovin'
You know what the answer is

Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you
Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you

Ooh...ooh...ooh...
Ooh...ooh...yeah, yeah, yeah

Promise me you'll be here, baby
Promise me this is the year
Always be, be sincere, my love
That's all I need, baby

Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you
Just give me a little respect, baby
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you

Just give me a little respect

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Shoo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Shoo doo doo doo (I need it)
Shoo doo doo doo doo doo
Shoo doo doo doo

Just give me a little respect, baby (My love)
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you
Just give me a little respect, baby (My love)
Just give me a little respect
And I'll give it to you (Wee...)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

Respect me (Wee...)
Just give m a little respect
And I'll give it to you (Woo...)
Respect me (Girl)
Just give m a little respect
And I'll give it to you

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me
I said R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Baby, give it, baby, give it to me

Respect me
