Oh, she may be weary
And young girls they do get weary
Wearing, that same old, shaggy dress, yeah yeah
But when she gets weary
Try, a little tenderness, yeah yeah
Oh man that..........Uh

You know she's waiting
Just, anticipating
For things that she'll never, never, never, never possess, yeah yeah
But while, she's there waiting, without them
Try, a little tenderness
That's all you gotta do

It's not, just sentimental no no no
She has, her grief and care yeah yeah yeah
But, the soft words, they are spoke so gentle yeah
It makes it, easier, easier to bare yeah

You won't regret it no no
Some girls they don't forget it
Love is their only, happiness yeah
But it's all so easy
All you gotta do is try, try a little, tenderness, yeah
All you gotta, do is man, hold her where you want her

Squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave her
Get to her, Just try
Just try a little tenderness, ooh yeah yeah yeah
You got to, know how to love her man, take this advice, man
You've got to, squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave
You've got to, hold her and rub her softly man
Try a little tenderness, ooh yeah yeah yeah
You've got to rub her gentle man, ah, watch it uh, ooh what don't bruise her no no
You've got to love her, tease her, don't squeeze her
Gotta try um nah nah nah, try
Try a little tenderness, yeah, watch her groove
You've gotta to know what to do, man
Take this advice
You gotta love and squeeze
Don't tease my baby
Love her, lord
