Try a little tenderness
Try a little tenderness
You know yes you know she's waiting
Just anticipating
The things she may never possess
What's she without them
Try try a little tenderness

Oh it's not just sentimental
She has her greaves and cares
And the word sweet and gentle
Makes it easier makes it easier to bear

You won't regret it
Women don't forget it
Love love love is their whole happiness
It's oh so easy it's oh so easy
So try a little tenderness
