Tenderness on The Block Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Mamma, where's your pretty little girl tonight?
She's tryin' to run before she can walk, that's right
She's growin' up, she's got a young man waitin'
She's growin' up, she's got a young man waitin'

She's wide-eyed, she'll be streetwise
To the lies and the jive talk
But she'll find true love
And tenderness on the block, yeah

Now daddy, don't you ask her when she's comin' home
And when she's back, don't ask her where she's been, no, no
She's goin' out, she's got a young man waitin', yeah
She's goin' out, she's got a young man waitin', mmm, hmm

And she'll be okay, let her have her way
'Cause it's a long way, it's a long walk
But she'll find true love, oh
And tenderness on the block

[Incomprehensible], she's gonna find true love
She's gonna find true love
She's gonna find true love
And tenderness on the block, mmm, hey

Now I know how much it hurts to see her go
But she's got a mind of her own, you know
She's all grown-up, she's got a young man waitin'
Oh, she's all grown-up, ain't got no young man waitin', no, no

She was wide-eyed, now she's streetwise
To the lies and the jive talk
She was wide-eyed, now she's streetwise
To the lies and the jive talk

But she'll find true love
And tenderness on the block
Yes, she's gonna find true love, hey
She's gonna find true love

She's gonna find true love
Oh, she's gonna find true love
She's gonna find true love
(Find true love)

She's gonna find true love, mmm
(Find true love)
She's gonna find true love
(Find true love)
She's gonna find true love
(Find true love)

She's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)
She's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)

Guess what, she's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)
She's gonna find true love, ooh
(She's gonna find true love)

She's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)
She's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)

Oh, she's gonna find true love
(She's gonna find true love)
She's gonna find true, true, true love
(She's gonna find true love, she's gonna find true love)
Oh yeah
(She's gonna find true love)
