H-A-N-D-S-U-P, New ‘Respect’ Lyrics For Our Times

What you want

I’m complyin’

What you need

You know I’m complyin’

All I’m askin’

Is for de-escalation

(Just a little bit)

When you pull me over

(Just a little bit)

Hey officer

(Just a little bit)

When you pull me over

(Just a little bit)

Officer

I ain’t gonna report nothin’

To the press

I ain’t gonna report nothin’

Cause I ain’t filmin’

All I’m askin’

Is for de-escalation

(Just a little bit)

Officer

(Just a little bit)

When you pull me over

(Just a little bit)

Yeah

(Just a little bit)

I’m ‘bout to lay down, hands in the air

And all I’m askin’, to be fair,

Is you keep that thing holstered

And let me get home

(de-es, de-es, de-es, de-es)

Yeah officer

(de-es, de-es, de-es, de-es)

Let me get home

(Just a little bit)

Please

(Just a little bit)

Oooh, your life is mighty fine

And guess what: so is mine

All I want you to do for me

Is let me get home

(de-es, de-es, de-es, de-es)

Please, sir, let me get home

(Just a little bit)

Please

(Just a little bit)

H-A-N-D-S-U-P

Find out what it means to me

H-A-N-D-S-U-P

Take care, please PD

(Please don’t) sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me sock it to me. . .
