    "Try A Little Tenderness" Lyrics

    Etta James

    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 youl never never possess
    No no no

    But while she there waiting

    Try just a little bit of tenderness
    Thats 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 dont forget it
    Love is their whole happiness
    Yeah yeha yeah
    But its all so easy
    All you got to do is try
    Try a little tenderness

    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
