If you disrespect everybody that you run in to
How in the world do you think everybody's s'posed to respect you?
If you don't give a heck about the man with the bible in his hand
Just get out the way, and let the gentleman do his thing.
You the kind of gentleman that want everything your way
Take the sheet off your face, boy, it's a brand new day.

CHOURS:
Respect yourself, respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot, na na na na
Respect yourself, respect yourself

If you're walking 'round thinkin' that the world owe you something cause you're here
You're goin' out the world backwards like you did when you first come here.
Keep talkin' 'bout the President won't stop air pollution
Put your hand on your mouth when you cough, that'll help the solution.
Oh, you curse around women though you don't even know their names
And you dumb enough to think that'll make you a big 'ol man.

CHORUS
