Try A Little Tenderness






Try A Little Tenderness
sung by Otis Redding



Oh she may be weary
And young girls, they do get wearied
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
yeah, yeah
But when she gets weary
Try a little tenderness
yeah, yeah

You know she's waiting,
Just anticipating
For things that she'll never, never, never, never, possess, yeah, yeah
But while she's there waiting,
without them
Try a little tenderness
[Thats all gotta you do]

It's not just sentimental no, no, no
She has - her grief and care
yeah, yeah, yeah
But the soft words, they are spoke so gentle, yeah
It, makes it easier, easier to bear, yeah

You wont regret it
No, no
Young girls they dont forget it
Love is their whole happiness
yeah

But its all so easy
All you gotta do is
try
Try a little
Tenderness
Yeah

All you gotta do is, man
Hold her where you want her
squeeze her
don't tease her
Never leave her
get to her
try, try
try a little tenderness
yeah, yeah, yeah
you gotta
no body love her, man
take this advice, man
you got ta
squeeze her
Don't tease her
never leave
you got ta hold her
and rub her softly, man
try a little tenderness
yeah, yeah, yeah
you gotta rub her gently man,
gotta
don't bruise her, no, no
you gotta love her,
tease her
don't
squeeze her

you got ta,
tra
na, na, na
try
try a little tenderness, yeah
watch the groove
you gotta know what to do man,
take this advice
you gotta love her
squeeze her
don't leave
my baby...
