BTS RM, SUGA – RESPECT English Translation Lyrics

Put your hands in the air
(Put your hands in the air)
Just like you don’t care
(Just like you don’t care)

Ayo SUGA, the trending word nowadays
“Respect” but these days I’m confused what it means
They say it’s said when someone keeps doing something (Why?)
I’m not sure either, brotha do y’all know
It’s obviously superior than love
Probably a concept that is at the top rank
Out of the superiors
Isn’t that called respect huh?
“Re-spect”, it’s literally looking again and again
Looking again and again and you’ll see faults
But despite of that you still want to look
Of course it’s necessary, a perfect concept of someone
So I can’t easily say that
That weight and thickness is vague
I hope one day I can confidently say it
And mean it when I do, to you and to me

Don’t say “respect” easily yeah
Because even I am not sure too yeah
Sometimes I’m scared of myself
What if the weak me is found out

(Respect) you say it so easily
(Respect) though you don’t know what it is
(Respect) please take a look again
(Respect) one time
(Respect) two times
(Respect) I won’t say it easily
(Respect) even if I don’t know well now
(Respect) one day I’ll say it
(Respect) one time
(Respect) oh yeah

What is “respect”? (What, hyung?)
I don’t know, that’s why I’m asking kid (Oh.)
What is “respect”?
Why is everyone saying it?
Honestly I can’t understand
Is esteem* for someone
Something that easy?
I still can’t understand
To be honest, there’s no need for esteem
When there’s not even respect*
Everyone knows you’re a hypocrite***
Except for yourself
I honestly respect you
You have no intention to respect so just skip it
Respect, I respect you
Applause to that pal who speak ill while smiling

(Respect respect)
Hope you feel all the glory and prosperity of your life
(Respect respect)
Hope your future will forever be blessed
(Respect respect)
Money, fame, forward, forward
(Respect respect)
Yeah, I respect you yeah

(Respect) you say it so easily
(Respect) though you don’t know what it is
(Respect) please take a look again
(Respect) one time
(Respect) two times
(Respect) I won’t say it easily
(Respect) even if I don’t know well now
(Respect) one day I’ll say it
(Respect) one time
(Respect) oh yeah

* and ** both mean “respect”, however * is “respect” as in “admire,
think highly of”, while ** is “respect” as in “show consideration for”. For
easier understanding, different words were used.

*** literally: “shell pumpkin seeds”, meaning “talking/doing behind one’s
back, two-faced”
