What you want
Baby, I got it
What you need
Do you know I got it
All I’m askin’
Is for a little respect when you get 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 cause I don’t wanna
All I’m askin’
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)
Ooo, your kisses
Sweeter than honey
And guess what?
So is my money
All I want you to do 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 fools (just a little bit)
And I ain’t lyin’ (just a little bit)
(Re, re, re, re) when you come home
(Re, re, re ,re) ‘spect
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)
(Songwriters: Otis Redding)

When Doves Cry

Dig if U will the picture
Of U and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me

Can U my darling
Can U picture this?Dream if U can a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and UHow can U just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (So cold)
Maybe I’m just 2 demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father – 2 bold
Maybe U’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like when doves cryTouch if U will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
U’ve got the butterflies all tied up
Don’t make me chase U
Even doves have pride

How could U just leave me standing
Alone in a world so cold? (World so cold)
Maybe I’m just 2 demanding
Maybe I’m just like my father – 2 bold
Maybe U’re just like my mother
She’s never satisfied (She’s never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like when doves cry

How can U just leave me standing
Alone in a world that’s so cold? (A world that’s so cold)
Maybe I’m just 2 demanding (Maybe, maybe I’m like my father)
Maybe I’m just like my father – 2 bold (U know, U know he’s 2 bold)
Maybe U’re just like my mother (Maybe U’re just like my mother)
She’s never satisfied (She’s never, never satisfied)
Why do we scream at each other? (Why do we scream? Why?)
This is what it sounds like when doves cry
When doves cry (When doves cry) (When doves cry) {x2}
Don’t cry (Don’t cry)

Oh yeah {x6}
When doves cry {x3}
Babe! {x6}

When doves cry (Doves cry, doves cry, doves cry)
When?when?
Don’t cry
Darling, don’t cry
Don’t cry, don’t cry, don’t, don’t cry
