"Tenderness" #Poetry w/Otis Redding "Try A Little Tenderness" #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #Try #LovU #INeedU

Introduction:

“lean in to kiss me in all the places where the ache is the most special.” 

Sanober Khan

The song being featured this evening is titled "Try A Little Tenderness"(2). One of the most popular versions sung by the brilliant, Otis Redding. It is also the 5th track on his albumn titled "Complete & Unbelievable" which subsequently was released in May 1966.

The video, published on Jan 28, 2015 by Ame Link, is a Memphis soul genre. I am adding a little verse titled "Tenderness".

Tenderness

I missed that song at the doorway of sunrise
So, clouds slowly darken as a day went awry
Was it my turn or did you just forget?
Seems like lately we’ve lost an intercut step

The dance is everything as you well know
Thinking out loud, you, I love; I’ll never let go
All those fluctuations in the “River's” stream
Makes fish crazy enough they want to scream

Hiding from change; not wanting to blink
Be it ridiculous to most; however few might think
Life without a morning song will always be incomplete
Today be it late; yet still in time with tenderness it’s sent

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Try A Little Tenderness(4)


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 a little tenderness, yeah yeah

You know she's waiting
Just anticipating
For things that she'll never, never, never, never possess, yeah yeah
But while she's there waiting, without them
Try a little tenderness (that's all you gotta do)

It's not just sentimental, no, no, no
She has her grief and care, yeah yeah yeah
But the soft words, they are spoke so gentle, yeah
It makes it easier, easier to bear, yeah

You won't regret it, no, no
Some girls they don't forget it
Love is their only happiness, yeah
But it's all so easy
All you gotta do is try, try a little tenderness, yeah
All you gotta do is, man, hold her where you want her

Squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave her
Get to her, try, try
Just try a little tenderness, ooh yeah yeah yeah
You got to know how to love her, man, you'll be surprised, man
You've got to squeeze her, don't tease her, never leave
You've got to hold her and rub her softly
Try a little tenderness, ooh yeah yeah yeah
You've got to rub her gentle man, all you gotta do, no no 
You've got to love her, squeeze her, don't tease her
Gotta try nah nah nah, try
Try a little tenderness, yeah, watch her groove
You've gotta to know what to do, man
