    I may get weary
    Women do geat weary
    Wearing the same shabby dress
    But to on who's weary
    Try a little
    Try a little tenderness

    Oh, oh, oh
    I may be waiting
    Just anticipating
    All of the things
    I may never possess

    Mmm, but while I'm waiting
    Try a little
    Try a little tenderness

    I may be, I may be sentimental
    But I wanna say
    That I've had my griefs
    Oh, and I've had my cares

    And just a good word
    Soft and gentle
    Makes it, makes it easier
    Easier to bear

    Now, I might forget it
    Oh, but don't let me forget it
    Love's all ym whole
    Whole happiness

    Mmm, and it's so, so easy
    Try a little
    Oh, try a little tenderness
    Tender, tender, tenderness
