Shirley Bassey – Try A Little Tenderness lyrics

In the bustle of today
We're all inclined to miss
Little things that mean so much
A word, a smile, a kiss

When a woman loves a man
He's a hero in her eyes
And a hero he can always be
If he'll just realize

She may be weary, women do got weary
Wearing the same shabby dress
And when she's weary
Try a little tenderness

You know she's the waiting just anticipating
Things she may never possess
While she's without them
Try a little tenderness

It's not just sentimental
She has her grief and care
And a word that soft and gentle
Makes it easier to bear

You won't regret it, woman don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness
It's oh, so easy
Try a little tenderness

It's oh, so easy
Try a little tenderness
It's oh, so easy
Try a little tenderness
