If you disrespect anybody
That you run into
How in the world do you think
Anybody's suppose to respect you?

If you don't give a heck about the man
With the bible in his hand
Just get out the way
And let the gentleman do his thing

Now you're the kind of gentleman
That want everything your way
Take the sheet off your face, boy
It's a brand new day

Respect yourself
Respect yourself
But if you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot

Respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself

If you're walkin' 'round thinking
That the world owes you something 'cause you're here
Well, you goin' out the world backwards
Like you did when you first come here

Keep talkin' 'bout the president
It won't stop air pollution
Put your hand o'er your mouth
When you cough that'll help the solution, yes it will

You curse around women
And you don't even know their names
Then you're dumb enough to think
It'll make you a big ol' man

Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot

Respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot

Respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot

Respect yourself
Well, well, respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself

Respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
I said, respect yourself

Respect yourself
Come on, respect yourself
