Respect

This song is about a story when a guy is having a relationship with someone just for the sake of getting money in return. This is a one-sided love affair where the woman has a vast numbers of wealth and was fallen in love to a certain guy. The guy did not love her maybe because she lacks the charisma or maybe she was old enough or maybe she look ugly while the guy is tall, handsome, and possessed the characteristics of attractive personality. And maybe because the guy has nothing financially, he is taking advantage of that woman just to get enough money or just to be financially free. So he is having a relationship or he is marrying for money.

When someone is marrying for money, it is often that the relationship is troublesome. Love, care, and respect are usually missing. Realizing that this is the problem, the woman her is just asking the man to just give her even a little respect. Maybe she is experiencing some disrespect or maybe she realized that their relationship is of no value at all. Maybe her eyes were opened to the truth that her relationship to that guy was just a nightmare and there is no reset button to go back to old happy days.

In the present, we often heard a story about this. We often heard about people complaining that their marriage is not the desirable one. We often heard about a relationship that did not last long. Often when all money is gone, so is their relationship. So the common advice, never marry for money or never used money to be loved in return. This will never work in the long term.

If you want the lyrics, here it is.

(oo) What you want
(oo) Baby, I got
(oo) What you need
(oo) Do you know I got it?
(oo) All I’m askin’
(oo) Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

I ain’t gonna do you wrong while you’re gone
Ain’t gonna do you wrong (oo) ’cause I don’t wanna (oo)
All I’m askin’ (oo)
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 profits
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)

[instrumental break]

Ooo, your kisses (oo)
Sweeter than honey (oo)
And guess what? (oo)
So is my money (oo)
All I want you to do (oo) for me
Is give it to me when you get home (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah baby (re, re, re ,re)
Whip it to me (respect, just a little bit)
When you get home, now (just a little bit)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, TCB

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, babe (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 of foolin’ (just a little bit)
And I ain’t lyin’ (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) ‘spect
When you come home (re, re, re ,re)
Or you might walk in (respect, just a little bit)
And find out I’m gone (just a little bit)
I got to have (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit).
