By: Mel and Kim
Sung by: Rory and Beth
Solos: Rory and Beth
Place: Courtyard
Episode: Severed Strings

Respectable is a song originally by Mel and Kim. It is a duet sung by Beth Everly and Rory Everly in the second episode of the first season of Glee: Paint the Sky.

Elliot and Bella requests for the girls to perform a song to the school in order to recruit new members, suggesting an 'oldie'. The girls select Respectable and wear colourful 80's style clothing. They give an energetic performance in the courtyard at morning recess. However, the audience are less than enthusiastic, booing them once the performance. This upsets both Beth & Aurora and prompts them to perform a more modern number.

LyricsEdit

Aurora and Beth:
Take or leave us
only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

It's our occupation
we're a dancing nation
we keep the pressure on every night
Explanations are complications
we don't need to know the where or why
Taking chances
bold advances
don't care if you think we're out of line.
Conversation is interrogation
get out of here
we just don't have the time

Aurora:
Take or leave us
only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us
but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Hesitation is iust frustration
give us the music and we're all right

Beth:
On each occasion
for your information
we can look after ourselves all right

Take or leave us
only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
like us, hate us
but you'll never change us
we ain't ever gonna be respectable

Aurora:
Fascination is our sensation
we like to put ourselves on the line

Beth:
Recreation is our destination
so don't wait up for us tonight

Aurora and Beth:
Take or leave us
only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us
but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable

Take or leave us
only please believe us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
Like us, hate us
but you'll never change us
We ain't ever gonna be respectable
