I respect a man raisin' his kids all on his own
I respect a man who makes sure he takes care of home
You gotta respect a man with good judgement
'Cuz I'll be damned if someones takin' care of my kids
And I respect a man who treats his woman like a queen
I know you're not perfect, you ain't gonna be so mean
No matter how strong she is for a woman
A man should never attempt to lay his hands on her

There's more to life than what happens on your block
Let's treat your women right and hold 'em at the top
Gotta raise these kids and teach 'em, never, don't ya stop
You ain't no man to me if you let your family starve, oh, oh

Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing

I respect the type of girl that tries to love a man
With many flaws and broken laws but still he stands
The kinda girl that turns a boy into a man
The kinda girl who turns a flop into a plan
No respect for those who walk through life just askin' you
What you can do for them but still they hate on you
It don't take no man to make that baby
But yes, it takes a man to raise that baby

There's more to life than what happens on your block
Let's treat your women right and hold 'em at the top
Gotta raise these kids and teach 'em, never, don't ya stop
You ain't no man to me if you let your family starve, oh oh

Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing

Fellas, we gotta make a change
In the way that we treat our women and our children, yes we do
Hope that there's a better day
Put your hands to the sky
If you wanna change, need a change
See all that, but you don't, you don't really mean a thing
If you can't show some love to the ones connected by your blood
'Cuz in the end all that matters is your wife and the kids, oh, oh, yeah

Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing

Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
Got no respect for them dudes that hit they women and
Got no respect for the fools that leave they children
I just wanna take care of my family
Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
