(Just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do you wrong
While you're gone
Ain't gonna do you wrong
(Ooh) Cause I don't want to
(Ooh) All I'm askin'
(Ooh) 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 you
All of my money
And all I'm askin'
In return, honey
Is to give me my propers
When you get 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)

Ooh, your kisses
(Ooh) Sweeter than honey
(Ooh) And guess what
(Ooh) So is my money
(Ooh) All I want you to do for me
(Ooh) Is give it to me when you get home

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, T-C-B, 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) Whoa, yeah
(Just a little bit) 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 a fool
(Just a little bit) And I ain't lyin'
(Just a little bit)

(Re, re, re, re) Respect when you come home
(Re, re, re, re) Or you might walk in
(Respect, just a little bit) And find I'm gone
(Just a little bit)
