“…Take my advice
it’s so nice
when you hold her,
love her,
kiss her,
squeeze her,
don’t tease her
Baby c’mon,
C’mon
Try some tenderness,
tenderness, oh yes…”

Oh, she may be weary
Young girls they do get weary
Wearing that same old shaggy dress, yeah yeah
But when she gets weary
Try, try a little tenderness, yeah 
X
You know she’s waiting
Just anticipating
For things that she’ll never, never, never, never possess, no no
But while she’s there waiting, without them
Try a little tenderness (that’s all you gotta do)
X
You know it’s not just sentimental, no, no, no
She has her grief and care, 
But the soft words, they are spoke so gentle, yeah
It makes it easier, easier, easier to bear, oh
X
You won’t regret it
Young girls they don’t forget it
Love is their whole happiness, yes
But it’s all so easy
All you gotta do is try a little tenderness, oh yeah
All you gotta do man oh oh is hold her where you want her
X
And squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her
Oh just try a little tenderness, oh oh
try it, try it, try it
You got to hold her, know how to love her,
and baby take this advice..”

EDIT:
Each and every
 child, man and woman
deserves and needs
tenderness.
Our America needs to offer tenderness to be GR8 again.
