Lyrics
If there’s one thing in this world that you’ve gotta do,
It’s find the time to face the mirror of reality.
And if you don’t like what you’re seeing staring back at you,
Get out your money cos it’s time to pay respects.

Pay respects to your fam’ly;
Pay respects to your friends;
Come on down, don’t be happy at the back of the shelf.
Put your hand in your pocket; you’ve got plenty to spend:
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

When you’ve gotta play the game, but it’s getting hard,
Look at the world and see what’s happ’ning right before your eyes.
Cos there’s a lot of people winning who weren’t dealt your cards.
Pile up your pennies cos it’s time to pay respects.

Pay respects to the future;
Pay respects to the past.
Make a move; don’t keep hiding at the back of the shelf.
Take a step on the journey and it wont be your last:
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Who’s that hero hiding at the back of the shelf?
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

When you’re feeling like a fool who can’t do a thing,
You gotta realise that ev’rybody’s just like you.
Cos there’s a wealth of talent waiting for your life to bring:
Get out your wallet cos it’s time to pay respects.

Pay respects to your body;
Pay respects to your brain.
There you go, nearly moving from the back of the shelf.
You’ve got nothing to lose but there is plenty to gain:
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

Often you should just ignore what some people do,
They’ll try to drag you down into their negativity.
Just keep on searching for the gold that’s deep inside of you:
And when you find it, then it’s time to pay respects.

Pay respects to decisions;
Pay respects to your deeds.
One more step, you’ll be jumping off the back of the shelf.
If you just keep on moving, you’ll get all that you need.
Hey, pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Who’s that hero hiding at the back of the shelf?
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!
Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Pay respects.
Pay respects to yourself.
Who’s that hero hiding at the back of the shelf?
Pay respects, pay respects, to yourself!

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Respect!
