Respect Yourself Lyrics

Da da da da da da...
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

If you disrespect
Everybody that you run into
How in the world do you think
Anybody supposed to respect you

If you don't give a heck about
The man with the Bible in his hand, y'all
Just get out the way and
Let the gentleman do his thing

You're the kind of gentleman
That want everything your way, yeah
Take the sheet off your face, boy
It's a brand new day

Respect yourself
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot
Na, na, na, oh, oh
Respect yourself
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)

Da da da da da da...
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

If you're walking around thinking
That the world owes you something
Cause you're here

You're going out the world backward
Like you did when you first came in, yeah

Keep talking about the President
It won't stop air pollution
Put your hand over your mouth
When you cough
That'll help the solution

Oh, you cuss around women though
You don't even know their names
Then you're dumb enough to think
That it makes you a big ol' man, yeah

Respect yourself
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good cahoot
Na, na, na, oh, oh
Respect yourself
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)

Respect yourself
Respect yourself

Respect yourself, yeah
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)

Respect yourself
(Da, da, da, da, da)
Respect yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)

Respect yourself
(Na, na, na, na, na)
You better yourself
(Dee, dee, dee, dee, dee)

Come on, respect yourself
(Na, na, na, na, na)
Respect yourself
Just respect yourself
