(harry woods – jimmy campbell – red connelly)
in a 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 the 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 posses
while she’s without them try a little tenderness.
it’s not just sentimental she has her grief and her care
and the word that’s soft and gentle makes it easier to bear
no you won’t regret it women 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…
