From the recording Three Tequila Floor

Lyrics

VERSE
I like my job, and I like my wife
I like my kids, and I like my life
I like you, too, but an innocent embrace
Today might well get me thrown out of this place

CHORUS
I’d hug you but ― I don’t want to go to jail
I’d hug you but ― who do I know would go my bail?
Used to be, I could be a regular male
But I hug you today, you might kick my tail

VERSE
They say we’re all pigs, but I don’t agree
Most of us’re pretty decent, the way I see
As we try to make it through this very dark time
We just need to understand the brand new bottom line

Repeat CHORUS

RIDE

BRIDGE
No one should have to say “me, too”
Time for us to know what not to do

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
R-E-S-P-E-C-T, that’s what all this means to me
So I’d hug you but ― I guess I’d better leave you be
