"Try A Little Tenderness"
(Jimmy Campbell / Reginald Connelly / Harry Woods)

This is for you ooh she may be weary
And them young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
But when they get weary
You gotta try a little tenderness

Tell you, might not believe it, but
You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
The thing that she'll never, never, possess, no, no
But while all the time she's without it
Go to her and try just a little bit of tenderness
That's all you gentlemen gotta do

Oh, but its one thing
It might be a bit sentimental yeah, yeah
She has - her greaves and care
But the soft words they are spoken so gentle
But, oh, that makes it, makes it easier to bear, yeah

You won't regret it
No no,
Them young girls they don't forget it
'Cause love is their whole, whole happiness yes, yes, yeah

And it's all so easy
Come on and try
Try a little tenderness
Yeah try
Just keep on trying

You've got to love her
Squeeze her
Don't tease her make love, get to her
Hold her tight
Just, just try a little tenderness
That's all you gotta do
You've gotta hold her tight

One more time
You've got to love her
Hold her don't tease her
Never leave her
Make love to her
Hold her, man

Try a little tenderness
Just one time, god have mercy now
All you've gotta do
Love her
You've gotta hold her
Don't squeeze her
Never leave her y
Ou gotta now, now, now

Watch it, tell everybody
Try a little tenderness

You gotta make love
Don't tease her
Never leave her
Rub her down
Smooth her, soothe her
Move her
Love her
Rub her
Gotta gotta, zak it to her
Try some tenderness

Oh yeah
Little tendernes
Gotta, lord you gotta hold her
Squeeze her never leave her
