"Appreciate the Lady" is a song featured in the 1981 film The Fox and the Hound. It was written by Jim Stafford and sung by Pearl Bailey. It is about how Tod wanted to impress Vixey, but did it wrong because he can't really catch fish. It is a romance song as we see them draw closer to one another.

Lyrics

When you have a natural attraction
You deserve a mutual reaction
You're gonna get a whole lot of satisfaction
Here's all you gotta do

When you feel that natural affection
Lead you in a positive direction

You gotta stop showing off
Start showing up
With little natural you
Yes, you gotta appreciate the lady

And, now, that is a natural fact
'Cause when you be yourself
With a lady act
You're gonna be appreciated right back
