B-R-E-S-PE-C-T

Let’s go back to the 60’s – way back to the 60’s. Put on your cat-eyed glasses, style you hair up in a bee-hive, put on your pink capri pants, get your do-wap to jamming, practice those back-up singer steps and get ready to groove Aretha Franklin style. Now, we’re talking “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” but to put a Breast Cancer spin on it you’ve got to get a little “Bres-Pect.” Okay, I know it’s not spelled exactly correct but use your imagination here. And when you’re spelling it out you have to slur the P and the E in the middle together. You got it now? Just a little bit? I hope so – tap those toes and snap those fingers. (This one is going out to all my nieces and my daughter who must, MUST get yearly check-ups! And all you other gals who know you need a little brespect – make that appointment!)
“B-R-E-S-PE-C-T”
(oo) What I got
(oo) You don’t want
(oo) What you need

Hey, Baby (just a little bit) you must get one (just a little bit) girl-ie (just a little bit)

It ain’t gonna do you wrong when you’re done
Ain’t gonna do you wrong (oo) cause you don’t want it.(oo).
All I’m askin’ (oo)
Is for a little brespect once a year now (just a little bit)
Baby (just a little bit) you gotta get one (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit).

I’m about to give a doc all of my money
And all I’m askin’ in return, honey.
Is you to get a mammo.
Just once a year now (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Yeah baby (just a, just a, just a, just a)
Get you a mammo (just a little bit)
Yeah (just a little bit)

Instrumental Break

Ooo, your boobies (oo)
Sweeter than honey (oo)
And guess what? (oo)
So is your money (oo)
All I want you to do (oo) for me
Is get to the doc for a mammo (bre,bre,bre,bre)
Yeah, baby, (bre,bre,bre,bre)
Whip it to me (brespect, just a little bit)
Just once a year, now (just a little bit)

B-R-E-S-PE-C-T
Find out what it means to me.
B-R-E-SP-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 brespect (sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me)
Whoa, babe (just a little bit)
A little brespect (just a little bit)
Don’t get tired (just a little bit)
Keep on tryin’ (just a little bit)
You’re running out of foolin’ (just a little bit)
And I ain’t lyin’ (just a little bit)
(bre,bre,bre,bre) ‘spect!
Once a year now (Bre,bre,bre,bre)
Or you might walk in (brespect, just a little bit)
And find out I’m gone (just a little bit)
You got to have (just a little bit)
A little brespect (just a little bit)

All right – that was jammin’. I am so feeling the beat! Now go get the phone, call your doc, and make an appointment for a mammo – get a little brespect, baby!
