Respect Yourself (People Stand Up) Lyrics

If you disrespect anybody that you run into
How do you think anybody's supposed to respect you?
If you lay the blame and complain
You'll only stay the same
It's a whole lot of rooms in this house
Ain't no room for shame

To my people on the front porch, front page, full of rage
Reaching through the bars of your cage
Now look inside cause the pride of the tribe
Is crying for change

Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself

You can move any mountain in your way
If you believe that you can
But if there's blood on your hands
It's the sign of a desperate plan

You're gonna make a few mistakes, heads will shake
But you know you're ready now
You got to start in your heart
Do your part to turn the world around

Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself

Every one of us changes
At the speed of trust
Now is the time, come on
People stand up and respect yourself
Respect yourself

Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
Respect Yourself
