I try to discover
A little something to make me sweeter
Oh baby refrain
From breaking my heart
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
Why you're making me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please
Give a little respect
To me

And if I should falter
Would you open your arms out to me
We can make love not war
And live at peace with our hearts
I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
What religion or reason
Could drive a man to forsake his lover

Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no
Don't you tell me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please
Give a little respect
To me

I'm so in love with you
I'll be forever blue
That you give me no reason
You know making me work so hard

That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no
That you give me no

Soul, I hear you calling
Oh baby please (Give a little respect)
Give a little respect
To me

(Soul) I hear you calling
Oh baby please (Give a little respect)
Give a little respect
To me
