Lyrics

Respect Society

Respect
Respect
We demand some respect as society
Ehhh hee
I don’t know when a day shall come
When everyman will be free in his country
Lord this is what every one
Would want to see before life comes to pass
I can tell you we have seen enough oppression
Where politicians treat people like there is no tomorrow in this life again
Killing innocent people in front of law it shows disrespect father
That is why I’ve got say these words to world

We demand some respect as society    omwana wo’muntu
We demand some respect as society    kyeyetaaga
We demand some respect as society    okufuna eddembe lye
We demand some respect as society

What does it take to fulfill your promises and do the things the way people want
Equal rights and justice have become a cat and rat race game everywhere.
Get this right Mr. Authority it is these that gave you power
What goes around comes around anytime hear this crying courts of law.

We demand some respect as society    we demand some respect in society 
We demand some respect as society    we demand it ohhhh
We demand some respect as society    we demand some little respect ehhh Lord father
We demand some respect as society    we deserve it

Ask anywhere in the world about respect
They will tell this is what every one yarns for
In Africa we have been fighting for so long
In America they always worked for it
In Europe they still preserve it, Asia they still fight for it
In Australia they want it to.

We demand some respect as society    do good to me I shall be good to you 
We demand some respect as society    stop fighting war is evil stop whipping me
We demand some respect as society    stop brutality
We demand some respect as society    let us share equally let’s restore calmness
We demand some respect as society    and then the world shall be at peace all the time
All the time.
