I may get weary
Women do get weary
Wearing the same shabby dress
But to one who's weary
Try a little tenderness

She may be waiting
Just anticipating
All of the things
She may never possess
But while she's waiting
Try a little tenderness

I may be sentimental
But I've had my griefs
And my cares
And just a good word
Soft and gentle
Makes it, makes it
So much easier to bear

She might forget it
Oh but don't let her forget it
Love's got a whole
A whole happiness
'Cause it's so easy
Try a little tenderness

Oh it's so very easy
It's so very easy
Try a little
Try a little
Try a little
Try a little
Try a little

Try a little, try a little
Won't you
'Cause it's so very easy
So very easy
Won't you try
Yes, I'll try
Try a little tender -
Tender -
- Ness
I'll try a little tenderness
Oh
