What you want, honey, you've got it
And what you need, baby, you've got it
All I'm asking is for a little respect when I come home

Do me wrong, honey, if you wanna
You can do me wrong, honey, while I am gone
But all I'm asking for is for a little respect when I come home

Hey, little girl, you're so sweeter than honey
And I am about to just give you all my money
All I'm asking for is a little respect when I come home

Hey, little girl, you're sweeter than honey
And I am about to give you all my money
But all I want you to do just give it, give it, respect when I come home

Respect is what I want
Respect is what I need
Respect is what I want
Respect is what I need

Got to, got to have it
Got to, got to have it
Gotta, got to have it
Gotta, got to have it
