What you want
Baby, I got it
What you need
You know I got it
All I'm askin'
Is for a little respect when you get 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 'cause I don't wanna
All I'm askin'
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 propers 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)

Oh, your kisses
Sweeter than honey
And guess what?
So is my money
All I want you to do 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

Take care, TCB

(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 fool
(Just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin'
(Just a little bit)
Respect
(Re, re, re, re)
When you come home
(Re, re, re ,re)
Or you might walk in
(Just a little bit)
And find out I'm gone
