Tenderness Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Be nice to her whenever you can
And as you cross the street always hold her hand
And you'll find out
Tenderness goes a long, long way

So, smile at her when she does something wrong
Always be there to pick her up and make her strong
And you'll find out
Tenderness goes a long, long way

And oh, if you treat her kind, sometimes she'll be blind
To the wrong things that you might do
Oh, if you treat her good, oh, the way that you should
She'll see the goodness in you

So, be sweet to her and gentle too
And you'll find out
Oh, what that tenderness can do
You'll find out, you'll find out
Tenderness goes a long, long way

So, be kinda sweet to her, oh and be gentle too
You'll find out
What that, oh, what that tenderness can do
You'll find out, you'll find out, you'll find out
Tenderness goes a long, long way
