Oh, she may be weary
Young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress, yes
But when they get weary
Try a little tenderness, oh yeah

You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
Things that she'll never ever ever ever possess, yeah
But all the times that she is without them
Gotta try a little tenderness

Oh but there is one thing
It's not just sentimental, yeah
She has her grief and care
But the words are so soft and gentle
And it makes it easier
Yeah it makes it easier to bear, yeah

Oh you won't regret it
Cause some girls they don't forget it
Cause love is their only happiness, yes
And it's all so easy
Come on and try a little tenderness

You've got to hold her, move
Just prove your love to her
Make love
And try, try, try, try
Try a little tenderness, tenderness

You've got to hold her, squeeze her
Don't tease her
Make love
Just try, just try, just try
Try a little tenderness, tenderness, oh

You've got to, oh yeah
You've got to, you've got to, you've got to
Try a little tenderness, oh
You've got to, oh yeah
