Respect

In another time, in another place
You might know my name, you might see my face
And see I'm more than the sum of my parts
You might see me here, or feel me there
Coming out of the sameness everywhere
And know that something hungers in your hearts.

     I don't really want much
     No not much at all
     Just give me a reason
     To give you a call
     But the thing I'd really like most of all
     Is some Respect.

     I like shiny cars
     I like expensive bars
     I want anything I can get - just the same as you
     Give me your love or money
     Appreciate me honey
     But still I need Respect - just tell me what to do

Don't leave me at home wasting time alone
I really want to appear at the astrodome
As the man we all admire and support
Raise up those big blue eyes like miniture skies
Sell me all your alibis
And I'll gladly keep the ball in my own court.

     Respect - It's what I want
     Respect - It's what I need
     Respect - From the lonely crowd
     Respect - Satisfaction garunteed. 

     Respect opens all the doors
     Respect fills the Ego's pores
     Respect teaches a thing or two
     What will it take to earn some Respect from you?

     I don't really want much
     No not much at all
     Just give me a reason
     To give you a call
     But what I'd really like most of all
     Is some Respect.
