I hear so many people say all they want is respect

And when they don’t get it I hear them object

They insist that you treat them a certain way

But there;s no respect in the words that they say

They want you to be loyal, a true friend

But they turn their back on you again and again

They think they deserve better than what they give

They always expect for you to forgive

I don’t know where they learned to treat others

I can’t imagine they learned it from their mothers

Maybe if they thought about others more than their self

Maybe then they’s get respect for themself
