In the hustle of the day, we’re all inclined to miss
Little things that mean so much
A word, a smile, and 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.
She may be 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 her care,
But 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.
