(Oop) What you want, (oop) baby, I got it
(Oop) What you need, (oop) you know I got it
(Oop) All I'm asking, (oop) 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) Mista (just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do you wrong, while you're gone
I ain't gonna do you wrong,
(Oop) 'Cos I don' wanna, (oop) All I'm asking,
(Oop) 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 ya all my money
And all I'm asking in return, honey
Is to give me my propers
When you come 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)

(Sax solo- 8 bars)

(Oop) your kisses, (oop) sweeter than honey
(Oop) And guess what, (oop) so is my money
(Oop) All I want you to do for me
(Oop) Is give it to me when you get home

(Ree-ree-ree-ree, ree-ree-ree-respect) yeah, Baby
(Just a little bit) when you get home
(Just a little bit) 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 out T-C-P.

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)
(Just a little bit) whoa-oh, yeah, 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 food
(Just a little bit) and I ain't Lynn'.
(Ree-ree-ree-ree, ree-ree-ree-respect) respect
(Just a little bit) when you get home
(Just a little bit) or you might walk in
(Just a little bit) and find out alone.
(Just a little bit) I've got to have
(Just a little bit) a little respect.
