Randy Crawford - Respect Yourself Lyrics

If 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 gentleman 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...
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
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

    Heard this beautiful rendition this morning on our local college station. Randy Crawford , Joe Sample two of the greats. Thanks for posting this.

    Absolutely *love* this updated rendition, which we can all use a reminder about its timely message! Heard it on Watercolors station on SiriusXM Saturday! Purchased it for my collection and shared it on my Facebook page this morning! Will be looking more at your work! God bless!
