Respect

Aretha Franklin

What you want
Baby, I got it
What you need
Do you know I got it?

All I'm asking
Is for a little respect when you come 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 gon' do you wrong
'Cause I don't wanna

All I'm asking
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 asking
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
R-e-s-p-e-c-t, take care of T-C-B

(Sock it to me, sock it to me) a little respect
(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 trying
(Just a little bit) you're running out of fools
(Just a little bit) and I ain't lying
(Just a little bit)

(Re, re, re, re) start when you come home
(Re, re, re, respect) or you might walk in
(Just a little bit) and find out I'm gone
(Just a little bit) I gotta have
(Just a little bit) a little respect
(Just a little bit)
