You''ve got to show me, got to show me a little 
You''ve got to give me, got to give me a little 
Yes, all I want is, all I want is a little 
What all I need is a little respect 

What you want, baby I got 
And what you need, you know that I''ve got it 
All I''m askin'' for is a little respect 
When you come home bring it to me, give it to me 
Your heart should go when you come on 
Respect me, oh I, I-I-I 

I ain''t gonna do you wrong while you''re gone 
I ain''t gonna do you wrong because I don''t wanna 
All I''m askin'' for is a little respect 

Respect me, I-I 
Respect me 
(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, I-I-I 
(I need a little bit) respect me (respect) I-I-I-I 

I''m out to give you all my money 
But all I''m askin'' in return honey 
Is to give me my proper, my proper respect 
When you come home bring it to me, give it to me 
Your heart should go when you come on 
Respect me, woo woo woo woo woo woo 

Ooh your kisses sweeter than honey 
So guess what, here is all o'' my money 
All I''m askin'' for is a little respect 

(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, I-I 
(I need a little bit) respect me (respect) 
(Gotta have a little bit) respect me, I-I-I 
(I need a little bit) respect me (respect) 
Break it down 

Respect me baby when we''re all alone 
Respect me sugar when you come home 
Respect me baby when you know it''s oh so good 
Respect me baby like I know you could 
Respect me, respect me me 
Respect me, oh I I-I-I 

(Gotta have a little bit, just a little bit) 
(I need a little bit... respect) 
(Gotta have a little bit, just a little bit) 
(I need a little bit... respect) 

Come on, respect me when I''m cookin'' 
Come on, respect me when I''m cleanin'' 
Come on, respect me when I''m workin'' 
I I I I I I 
I I, I I I 
Shoo doo doo shoo doo doo 

You''ve got to show me, got to show me a little 
You''ve got to give me, got to give me a little 
Yes, all I want is, all I want is a little 
What all I need is a little (respect) I-I-I-I
