THE RESPECT I GET            1     Wds & Music Gary M. Wollman

I ONLY REFLECT
THE RESPECT I GET

NO DON’T YOU FORGET
I ONLY REFLECT
THE RESPECT THAT I GET


SO DON’T YOU NEGLECT OR DESERT ME
‘CAUSE I’LL STILL BE IN YOUR FACE
ESPECIALLY IF YOU GO OUT OF YOUR WAY
TO HURT ME

DON’T BE PERTURBED B
IT’S THE ENEMY WE’VE MET
WE’RE ALL CAUGHT IN THE NET

DON’T FORGET
I ONLY REFLECT
THE RESPECT I GET
THE RESPECT THAT I GET



  THE RESPECT I GET                                     2
               
JUST YOU DON’T TRY AND JERK ME
I’LL FLY LIKE A BUTTERFLY
STING LIKE A BEE
YOU CAN ATTRIBUTE THAT QUOTE TO
NONE OTHER THAN THE... MOHAMMAD ALI
MAKE SURE THAT YOU SEE
I’M NOT ALL THAT
WET
ON THAT YOU CAN BET


BUT I CAN’T ALLOW YOU TO TREAT ME WITH DISRESPECT PEOPLE MUST PROTECT
THEIR VERY ESSENCE WITHOUT REGRET

AND DON’T FORGET
I ONLY REFLECT
THE RESPECT I GET

NO DON’T YOU FORGET
I ONLY REFLECT
THE RESPECT THAT I GET



   
    RESPECT I GET                                     3                  
COMIN’ FROM YOU IT’S SO LONG OVERDUE
THE RESPECT I GET

IT COULD TURN OUT TO BE WATCHA REALLY WANNA SEE
FAR BETTER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT

WE CAN ILL AFFORD TO BOAST
(WHEN WE CAN) MAKE THE MOST
OF  ANY AWARENESS OF THEE

NATURALLY I ONLY REFLECT THE RESPECT I GET

OBVIOUSLY I  ONLY REFLECT THE RESPECT THAT I GET

YOU’VE GOT TO DO MORE THAN SHOW YOUR CONTEMPT

CAREFULLY WATCH WHO YOU CHOOSE TO RESENT

MAKE A CLEAR CHOICE WHEN YOU RAISE YOUR VOICE
JUST WHO DO YOU REPRESENT? REINVENT

THE RESPECT THAT WE GIVE IS (THE) RESPECT WE GET
SO WHAT YOU GET IS WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
I’LL GIVE IT TO YOU
GIVE IT BACK TO ME
