Gary Numan – Respect lyrics
That's ok
If that's the way you wanna play it
I don't mind
I can play it anyway

You wont stop
Until I pul you to pieces
Which I will in time
But I'm still curious

Youre so young
Not one backbone between you
But you think youll make a hero
Quite peculiar

Youre just boys
You don't know what youve angered
Did you know youre talking to the heart
Of the machine?

Welcome boys
Welcome to the real world
I could almost be sorry
But I could be wrong

I know you
I know what youve been doing
I know where you live
And I know where you are

You know me
I'm the smiling assassin
You know I wont forgive
And you know I wont forget
