I have a heart that's proud you bet
I have a mind that won't forget
And I have arms that are strong and yet
Tender when they wanna to be

Well you can be the will that finds the way
You can be the one who saves the day
But show me tender when it's time to say
Exactly how it ought to be

And I never would've known it darlin'
If I hadn't known about you
You said, everyone can be a rock and roll
Like a river too

Well something happens when you find someone
Who makes you feel like you can do no wrong
No you don't have to take the whole world on
Just be tender when you want be
Sha la la la la la la

And I never would have known it baby
If I hadn't known about you
You said everyone can be a rock and roll
Like a river too

So let the waters carry us away
Wave goodbye to the old parade
Baby when we're unafraid
To be tender when we want to be

All the waters wash our cares away
All that we can see are better days
Don't ever let me hesitate
To be tender when I want to be
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
Sha la la la la la la
