I made a resolution and I plan to keep my work 
But I need you to make it work 
You've got to read the message, understand what's on my mind 
'Cause not to see would be a crime 
And we could lose it anytime 

We've got to show some respect 
We've got to learn to protect 
Don't take it for granted, I know 
That if you want to stay close 
We've got to show some respect 

But I believe in working, then I believe in a little help 
'Cause I'm not a light unto myself 
Without a thing of value, why settle for second best 
We don't know what's up ahead 
And we can't let ourselves forget 

We've got to show some respect 
We've got to learn to protect 
Don't take it for granted, I know 
That if you want to stay close 
We've got to show some respect 

For the things that I love about you 
From the woman that you see inside 
Don't let it walk out the door 
Love follows every time

For the things that I love about you 
From the woman that you see inside 

We've got to show some respect 
We've got to learn to protect 
Don't take it for granted, I know 
That if you want to stay close 
We've got to show some respect

We've got to learn to protect 
Don't take it for granted, I know 
That if you want to stay close 
We've got to,we've got to,we've got show some respect
We've got to,we've got to,we've got show some respect
We've got to,we've got to,we've got to,
Respect
We've got to hold it,we've got to hold it,we've got to hold it,(Respect)
Respect
We've got to hold it,we've got to hold respect
Hold on (Respect)
Respect
Hold on
Respect,respect,respect
