Mood Music Monday: Respect Yourself

Respect Yourself
The Staple Singers

you disrespect anybody
That you run in to
How in the world do you think
Anybody’s s’posed to respect you

If you don’t give a heck ’bout the man
With the Bible in his hand
Just get out the way
And let the gentle man do his thing

You the kind of gentleman
That want everything your 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 cahoot, na na na na
Respect yourself, respect yourself

If you’re walking ’round
Think’n that the world
Owes you something
‘Cause you’re here

You goin’ out
The world backwards
Like you did
When you first come here

Keep talkin’ ’bout the president
Won’t stop evolution
Put your hand on your mouth
When you cough, that’ll help the solution

Oh, you cuss around women
And you don’t even know their names
And you dumb enough to think
That’ll make you a big ol man

Respect yourself, respect yourself
If you don’t respect yourself
Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot, na na na na

    I actually had “If You’re Ready (Come Go With Me)” on repeat this morning. Excellent choice, Kay.
