RESPECT Lyrics

by Jay-z

Roc-A-Fella once again, yeah

We drop this song, yall didn't hear us before

Yall Gonna Hear Us Now

Aiyyo,
Rebels my name

play hero and ninja like a pretzel
You get all bent up
Nobodys gonna hold me down
nobodys gonna slow me down
All she be like straw house, nigga and just blow me down
>From Harlem a.k.a. Bangladesh, shock 'em down
thang thang
Make it sound like shitty bang bang
You still think im gonna choke the opposite of Jay-Z and Jermaine
Except im a rebel, on another level
where money mean everything
Talk to me

No they aint ready to talk to you
Im gonna let these cats know man
Yo, listen here

I flow with fo fo guys
haten po po spies
Relay on movin home grown pies
Rather dies than to see it
mo' poties
I see my people shy
They will be knock
whoever look through that pee holes blind
Smashing everything from the game
to that freak hoes fives
shake life
Must be crack cause it grows most wise
and losers finally quote to see a cat like me, cold shine
Every night up in the down
just to kill mo' timers
Bout time you let me play
Got more game than EA
Used to take goldeen trips to PA
we need a
Now on the way to the top it never stop
Catch me in every block with a rock
Eatin my way and its still just cocked
ready to pop, now whos the fooler
Think im uhs cause im cuter
be the same on in the cooler with the hole in the midula
I used to take twenties and buddha, to the face
till I caught that case with George, on my waist
Now B.O.
trying to violate if I get a taste
feel me?
Im just like you
want beef, i'll bust like you
need to bust just like you, only trust my crew
Diamonds In Da Ruff

Aiyyo, whatever you all want to do yall do it, bring it man, dont talk
to me, run at me

I can see its alot of yall goons
that dont want to see me get no riches
All im gonna do is rip the shows, get the hoes, and take your bitches
Nigga, you aint gotta like me
Front, then you gotta fight me
I dont play fair
I play to win and my crew is like me
Im from Spanish Harlem
1st Ave. to be exact
11-9-9, you niggas gotta problem wit that
Know from Eastend to Riverside and Fineas Dieon
bring the war without the wip like Dieon
Im gonna see 'em
Im gonna respect something that is important to me
aint nobody you know livin' that ever extorted me
My fam i'd die for, cry for, lie for
take a knife in the eye for
Nigga, im a suvivour in the BX, rep my Lenox
to 241st and Whiteplains
smack you like a Parker brother
fathers hit your light game
and I just came in
to let yall niggas know
bout a Diamond In Da Ruff
and I still need the dough, nigga

Nigga jumps across the webs, the Wilson, Grand Jev, Metro long, Polo
grounds, Saint Knick, Manhatten and we run New York

Yall want to know my style basically
Im a thorough nigga named B. Bubblin
not that cats you want trouble with
and i demand respect
Change the Harlem Vet. from Foster, Lincoln, Whillen Projects across
110th
to the depth witty, F had the West Indies
Im odin it right so my chicken head dog can rest with me
Most cats is unworthy
and you can find me if you wanted to on 1st Ave.
In gold Tim's and Yankee jersey

What What What What (fading)

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
