Try A Little Tenderness

This song is by David Sanborn.

Oh, she may be weary
Them young girls, they do get wearied
Wearing that same old miniskirt dress
But when she gets weary, you try a little tenderness

Oh man, that, un, hunh, I know she's waiting
Just anticipating the thing
That you'll never never possess, no, no, no
But while she there waiting

Try just a little bit of tenderness
That's all you got to do
Now it might be a little bit sentimental, no
But she has her griefs and care

But the soft words
They are spoke so gentle
Yeah, yeah, yeah
And it makes it easier to bear
Oh, she won't regret it

No, no, them young girls
They don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness
Yeah, yeah, yeah

But it's all so easy
All you got to do is try
Try a little tenderness, yeah
Damn that [unverified]

All you got to do
Is know how to love her
You've got to hold her
Squeeze her, never leave her

Now get to her
Got, got, got, to try a little tenderness
Yeah, yeah
Lord have mercy now

All you got to do
Is take my advice
You've got to hold her
Don't squeeze her, never leave her

You've got to hold her and never
So you got to try a little tenderness
A little tenderness, a little tenderness
A little tenderness

You've got to, got to, got to
You've gotta hold her
Don't squeeze her
Never leaver her

You got, got, got, got to
Now, now, now
Got, got, got to
Try a little tenderness, yeah
