Dizzee Rascal – Respect Me lyrics

You people respect me, if it kills you [x4]

Do it how they didn't, now they really wanna try to do it but I'm telling them no
I'm in a predicament with imitators wanna take my style and other bit of my flow
All this copy cattin on my lyrics that ya chattin betta stop until the gunshot's blow
Do you really want it coz I really wanna give it if you do just let me know
I show arrogance and elegance
But no tolerance for nonsense
I bring violence I'm a nuisance
Killer M-C leave no evidence
I've got brains and intelligence
But no conscience no innocence
We roll in the darkened silence
Represent us in any residence
And I swing for your chin with no hesitense
Imma captain ya betta bring your regiments
And your a failure don't have no relevence
Imma champion and a victor prick ya
So not ready so til ya see ya soul
Headed for the golden gates
No really you monkeys are playin with hate
Not guerilla warfare it's the coppers I carry this stick for
Plus I've had enough of these
Lil cheek comin from fake M-C's
Bad minders and skat ladies
Talkin about how it used to be
Well it's a brand new day
So leave me be
I don't need you so don't need me
Your opinion don't interest me
Don't like me that's fine by me
Coz from holly street ta hollywood it's all good
From new york ta your cool it's all cool
Your a fool if ya think I'm gonna cease
Now honestly could there really be peace
It don't seem that way to tough
Stop with the games I play to rough
Must be smokin to much puff
Divert or be deceased
You. K rapper stabbed in napa
Cause of gossip cause of chatter
He's still breathin he's still a dapper
Retaliate with gun clapper
Truthfully I can't see very well
Don't flatter your self your any girl
Them boy's shoulda said need ta hell
Now prepare for the beast

You people gonna respect me
Better make you respect me

You people are gonna respect me if it kills you [x2]
(alright verse two)

Ey yo endless speculation I'm facin
Constant controversial relations
To gun crime at garage events
With so many claims and no evidence
Suggesting I'm the reason
For the uk gun clap season
I'm legal may I stress
To the fool for the sake of
Strident intelligence
Go ahead check my files all day
Bit of criminal damage and T-D-A
Might be a little bit of violent disorder
But I aint never been locked away
Got some mates that have been convicted
Yer so what it's the hand life dealt them
We werent blessed with the systems T-L-C
Government shoulda tried ta help them
Any law breaker aint tryna hide it
As for the sentence aint tryna ride it
Stop that so I could do this
I'm legit ya may as well kiss my
A-S-S P-L-E-A-S-E I'm L-E-G-I-T
You ain't got nothin on me
But to the pricks who think I'm slack-in
Please don't ever be fooled I'm pack-in
This is a welcome and it's a warning
Please don't ever just think I'm rappin
You know the score I'm raw from day
Still dylan the villain from around the way
Feel free to quote anything I say
Please don't ever just think I'm chattin

People gonna respect me
I better make you respect me [x4]

You people gonna respect me if it kills you [x3]

I know what your thinkin it's gone to far now innit
Fuck it
If I don't speak whos gonna speak for me
Stand up for myself in this shit
So fuck you
Can't be, never have been, wont be a prick
Yer that's it
