Respect Lyrics

(Oh) What you want
(Oh) Baby, I got it
(Oh) What you need
(Oh) Do you know I got it?
(Oh) All I’m askin’
(Oh) 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
(Oh) ‘Cause I don’t wanna
(Oh) All I’m askin’
(Oh) 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)

Solo

Ooh your kisses
(Oh) Sweeter than honey
(Oh) And guess what?
(Oh) So is my money
(Oh) All I want you to do (oh) 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)
‘Spect (re, re, re, re)
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)

Respect – Guitar Lesson

‘Respect’ is probably the most famous soul song ever recorded. Breaking up the standard blues chord progression we play G7 – F7 during the verse and C7 – F7 during the chorus.

The biggest showpiece of the song is the sax solo, in the course we learn how to play it note for note on the guitar.

After over 80+ minutes of members-only videos, TAB, and live band loops practice, you play the complete song with the band.
