    Lyrics

    Ohh whoa ohh...
    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
    'cause 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 gotta 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 an your block
    Just 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

    [Chorus:]
    Got no respect for them dudes who hit they women and
    Got no respect for the fools who leave they children and
    I just want to take care of my family
    Got no respect if you ain't trying to do the right thing
    Got no respect for them dudes who hit they women and
    Got no respect for the fools who leave they children and
    I just want to 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 who 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 an your block
    Just 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

    [Chorus:]

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

    [Chorus:]
