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 shes 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 greavs and care
But the soft words they are spoke so gentle 
Yeah yeah yeah
And it makes it easier to bear
Oh she wont regret it

No no
Them young girls they don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness 
Yeah yeah yeah
But its all so easy
All you got to do is try
Try a little tenderness
Yeah
Damn that hart (hard?)

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
Ye
