try a little tenderness lyrics – tom jones

in the hustle of today, we’re all inclined to miss
those 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 get weary
wearing the same shabby dress
and when she’s weary, try a little tenderness

you know she’s waiting, just antic*p*ting
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’s soft and gentle makes it easier to bear
you won’t regret it, women don’t forget it, love is their whole happiness
it’s all so easy, try a little tenderness

try a little tenderness
try a little tenderness

it’s not just sentimental, she has her grief and care
and a word that’s soft and gentle makes it easier to bear
you won’t regret it, women don’t forget it, love is their whole happiness
it’s all so easy, try a little tenderness
