Ohh whoa ohh...
I respect a man raisin his kids all on his own
I respect a man who makes sure he takes care of home
You gotta respect a man with good judgement
'cause I'll be damned if someones takin' care of my kids
And I respect a man who treats his woman like a queen
I know you're not perfect you ain't gotta be so mean
No matter how strong she is for a woman
A man should never attempt to lay his hands on her

There's more to life than what happens an your block
Just treat your women right and hold em at the top
Gotta raise these kids and teach em, never don't ya stop
You ain't no man to me if you let your family starve

[Chorus:]
Got no respect for them dudes who hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools who leave they children and
I just want to take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
Got no respect for them dudes who hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools who leave they children and
I just want to take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing

I respect the type of girl that tries to love a man
With many flaws and broken laws but still he stands
The kinda girl who turns a boy into a man
The kinda girl who turns a flop into a plan
No respect for those who walk through life just askin' you
What you can do for them but still they hate on you
It don't take no man to make that baby
But yes it takes a man to raise that baby

There's more to life than what happens an your block
Just treat your women right and hold em at the top
Gotta raise these kids and teach em, never don't ya stop
You ain't no man to me if you let your family starve

[Chorus:]

Fellas we gotta make a change
In the way that we treat our women and our children yes we do
Hope that's there's a better day
Put your hands to the sky
If you want a change, need a change
See all that you know it don't really mean a thing
If you can't show some love to the ones connected by your blood
'Cause in the end all that matters is your wife and your kids

[Chorus:]
