Otis Redding – Try A Little Tenderness

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
Take this advice

Otis Redding – I’ve Got Dreams To Remember

I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember
I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember

Honey, I saw you there last night
Another man’s arms holding you tight
Nobody knows what I feel inside
All I know, I walked away and cried

I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen to me (I’ve got dreams) rough dreams (dreams to remember)

I know you said he was just a friend
But I saw him kiss you, again and again
These eyes of mine, they don’t fool me
Why did he hold you, so tenderly

I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen honey (I’ve got dreams) rough dreams (dreams to remember)

I still want you to stay
I still love you anyway
I don’t want you to ever leave
Girl, you just satisfy me, ooh-wee, ooh yeah

I know you said he was just a friend
But I saw you kiss him again and again
These eyes of mine, they don’t fool me
Why did he hold you so tenderly

I’ve got dreams, dreams to remember
Listen to me mama (I’ve got dreams) bad dreams, rough dreams (dreams to remember)
Don’t make me suffer (I’ve got dreams) rough dreams, bad dreams (dreams to remember)



Otis Redding lyrics

Otis Redding – I’ve Been Loving You Too Long

I’ve been loving you too long to stop now

You are tired and you want to be free
My love is growing stronger, as you become a habit to me
Ohh, I’ve been loving you too long
I don’t wanna stop now

With you my life has been so wonderful
I can’t stop now
You are tired and your love is growing cold
My love is growing stronger as our affair, affair grows old
I’ve been loving you oh, too long
I don’t want to stop now, ohh, ohh, ohh

I’ve been loving you a little too long
I don’t wanna stop now, ohh, ohh, ohh
And don’t make me stop now
Oh baby
I’m down on my knees
Please, don’t make me stop now

I love you, I love you, I love you with all my heart
And I can’t stop now
Please, please, please don’t make me stop now
Talkin’ ’bout heart and soul
That I love you
I love you



Otis Redding lyrics

Otis Redding – (Sittin’ On) The Dock Of The Bay

Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah

I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
Cuz I’ve had nothing to live for
And look like nothing’s gonna come my way

So, I’m just gon’ sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time

Looks like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I’ll remain the same, listen

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone, listen
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home, now

I’m just gon’ sit at the dock of a bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
Sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Wastin’ time
