One of the strong songs by Aretha Franklin that always makes me feel a bit more stronger. However per Wiki the original song was written and performed by Otis Redding a few years before she released.

Both songs have different stories, emotions and few changes in lyrics as well. Otis’s song is from a man’s perspective who is ready to do anything for his woman as long as he gets his due respect while Aretha’s song is from a woman’s perspective who is perfect for her man and demands his respect.

First up is Aretha’s song that was released in 1967:



Lyrics in English:

(oo) What you want
(oo) Baby, I got
(oo) What you need
(oo) Do you know I got it?
(oo) All I'm askin'
(oo) Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Hey baby (just a little bit) when you get home
(just a little bit) mister (just a little bit)

I ain't gonna do you wrong while you're gone
Ain't gonna do you wrong (oo) 'cause I don't wanna (oo)
All I'm askin' (oo)
Is for a little respect when you come home (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit) when you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

I'm about to give you all of my money
And all I'm askin' in return, honey
Is to give me my profits
When you get home (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
When you get home (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

Ooo, your kisses (oo)
Sweeter than honey (oo)
And guess what? (oo)
So is my money (oo)
All I want you to do (oo) for me
Is give it to me when you get home (re, re, re ,re)
Yeah baby (re, re, re ,re)
Whip it to me (respect, just a little bit)
When you get home, now (just a little bit)

R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care, TCB

Oh (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
A little respect (sock it to me, sock it to me,
sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)
I get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin' (just a little bit)
You're runnin' out of foolin' (just a little bit)
And I ain't lyin' (just a little bit)
(re, re, re, re) 'spect
When you come home (re, re, re ,re)
Or you might walk in (respect, just a little bit)
And find out I'm gone (just a little bit)
I got to have (just a little bit)
A little respect (just a little bit)

And now for Otis’s version that was released in 1965.



Lyrics in English:

What you want
Honey you've got it
And what you need
Baby you've got it
All I'm asking
Is for a little respect when I come home
Do me wrong
Honey if you wanna
You can do me wrong Honey while I am gone
But all I'm asking for
Is for a little respect when I come home
Hey little girl, you're so sweeter than honey
And I am about to just give you all my money
All I'm asking for
Is a little respect when I come home
Hey little girl, you're sweeter than honey
And I am about to give you all my money
But all I want you to do
Just give it, give it
Respect when I come home
Respect is what I want
Respect is what I need
Respect is what I want
Respect is what I need
Got to, got to have it
Got to, got to have it
Gotta, got to have it
Gotta, got to have it
