Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistenceOne step from lashing out at you...You want in to get under my skinAnd call yourself a friendI've got more friends like youWhat do I do?
[Pre:]Is there no standard anymore?What it takes, who I am, where I've been belongYou can't be something you're notBe yourself, by yourselfStay away from meA lesson learned in lifeKnown from the dawn of time
[Chorus:]Respect, walkWhat did you say?Respect, walkAre you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?
Run your mouth when I'm not aroundIt's easy to achieveYou cry to weak friends that sympathizeCan you hear the violins playing your song?Those same friends tell me your every word
[Chorus x2]
Are you talking to me?No way, punk!
[Chorus x2]
Are you talking to me?Walk on home, boy
