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
Just get out the way
And let the gentleman do his thing

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

Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good
Ca-hoot, na, na, na, oh, oh
Respect yourself
Respect yourself

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 here
You keep talking about the president
Who won't stop air pollution
Put your hand over your mouth
When you cough
That'll help the solution

You cuss around women folk
You don't even know their name
Then you're dumb enough to think
That it makes you a big 'ol man
  

Respect yourself
Respect yourself
If you don't respect yourself
Ain't nobody gonna give a good
Ca-hoot, na, na, na, oh, oh
Respect yourself
Respect yourself...
