[Verse 1]
BIf you disrespect anybody that you run in to
BHow in the world do you think anybody's s'posed to respect you
BIf you don't give a heck 'bout the man with the bible in his hand
BJust get out the way, and let the gentleman do his thing
BYou the kind of gentleman that want everything your way
BTake the sheet off your face, boy, it's a brand new day
B D B DRespect yourself, respect yourself
F#If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot, na na na na
B D B DRespect yourself, respect yourself
[Verse 2]
BIf you're walking 'round think'n that the world owes you something cause
BYou're here you goin' out the world backwards like you did when you
BPut your hand on your mouth when you cough, that'll help the solution
BOh, you cuss around women and you don't even know their names and you
BDumb enough to think that'll make you a big ol man
