Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot-“Respect Yourself”


When you walk across a college campus you see and hear amazing things. Unfortunately you see and hear some disappointing things. One of the troubling sounds I have frequently encountered is the amount of profanity that college students use in conversations as they walk across campus. The F Bomb is not only used but in some instances it is shouted. This lack of respect and civility is not a male thing. I have heard it from both males and females. It also crosses racial lines also.

Tonight as I drove home I listened to Huey Lewis do a great cover to an old The Staple Singers song called “Respect Yourself”.  I hope all of us can take heed to the lyrics especially the ones below. Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot if you don’t.

Oh, you cuss around women folk And you don’t even know their names

And you dumb enough to think That’ll make you a big ol man

Respect yourself, respect yourself

If you don’t respect yourself Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot, na na na na

Respect yourself, respect yourself Respect yourself, respect yourself
