Cole, Nat King - Tenderly Lyrics




The evening breeze caressed the trees tenderly
The trembling trees embraced the breeze tenderly
Then you and I came wandering by
And lost in a sigh were we
The shore was kissed by sea and mist tenderly
I can't forget how two hearts met breathlessly
Your arms opened wide and closed me inside
You took my lips, you took my love so tenderly

Cole, Nat King Tenderly Comments
  1. Imani M

    One of my favorite voices of all time 💞 this song is so flawless

  2. Truthfears Guilty

    nat's version, tops all!

  3. craig stiegel

    Second only to Frank (at his best), but close. It is heartbreaking to think that he smoked 4 packs a day-- he fathomed that they deepened his voice...we lost him at just 45 to lung cancer. What else might he have recorded had he lived a normal length life?! Nobody was a better balladeer. A gift of providence to be sure.

  4. James Gaches

    Nat cole is magical the absolute best Male singer class a gentleman not like Sinatra who I also love but he has no class compared to nat cole most of the times not all Sinatra would say sarcastic things about cole and nat cole WOULD NEVER SAY ANYTHING NASTY ABOUT SINATRA WE ARE ALL COMPLEX BUT SINATRA HAD TO HAVE THE UPPER HAND AND COULD AND WOULD BE A VERY NASTY MAN IT WAS HIS WAY OR THE HIGHWAY AND THAT IS VERY SAD PLEASE REMEMBER THAT BOTH MEN WORKED FOR CAPITOL AND SINATRA OF COUSE THINK THAT WAS A THREAT IN SINATRA MIND NAT COLE WOULD EVER THINK THAT WAY AS I SAID HE WAS A GENTLEMAN AND ALWAYS A CLASS ACT I LOVE SINATRA IN THE 50S AND 60S BUT HE WAS NOT THE NICEST PERSON ON THE CAPITOL RECORD BUILDING THERE IS A BRONZE PLACK ON THE WALL THAT SAYS. THE HOUSE THAT NAT BUILT SINATRA HAD TO READ THAT EVERY DAY FOR YEARS AND THAT HAD TO DRIVE HIM NUTS ALSO WHEN NC DIED IN 65 SINATRA RECORDED A LOT A LOT OF ALBUMS THAT SAME YEAR STRANGE

  10. amir iyun

    every time i heard this song i began to cry about days which gone and they will never return

  11. B RI Charloe

    DOCTORS SHOULD PRESCRIBE NAT FOR STRESS MANAGEMENT.

  12. TOMBANCROFT

    Every time I play a Nat King Cole song, I decide that's my favourite. Then I play another and decide, that's my favourite. In fact every one of Nat's songs is my favourite. That's because he is simply the best vocalist of my lifetime, and that now spans 78 years.

  13. A S

    Love, love , love , this song early black 🇺🇸 music . It's so classic!

  14. Zoé Túlio Paixão

    He must have known, oh so well, that ...”the man that hath no music in him is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.”

    Prof. Michael O. Zeee JCD ECS

    nicely described ;-)

  32. Dilma Célia

    Um clássico!

  33. Jim Stark

    This song was given to Sarah Vaughan in 1947 by the composer Walter Gross and she introduced it in her 1947 recording Musicraft 504. Rosemary Clooney later recorded it in 1952 with a lush Percy Faith string orchestration for the larger Columbia records, a company with superior marketing distribution and radio airplay, overshadowing Vaughan and Musicraft's earlier premiere.

    hOW i LOVED SARAH VAUGHAN,I saw her early in her career at(I THINK) the blue note w/ Lionel Hampton.

  34. Eisen J Eisen

  37. Betty Harlow

    Those 8 who disliked have no clue about music

    rixy roxana rivadeneira

    they are 28 right now in 12''10''2019

    Truthfears Guilty

    those 8 or 28 who disliked are the ones at the height of frustration.
    height of frustration = running totally naked around a round table trying to f-ck themselves in their own asses!

  38. Afonso Zilio

    RECORDAÇÕES MINHA JUVENTUDE.

  39. hymanandhyman

    MARVELOUS voice and his tone is OUTSTANDING !!!!!!

  40. James Williams

    Nat king Cole and Rosemary Clooney should have done a duet together of this Song as someone mention in their comment.

    Oshane w

    James Williams That would have been amazing. Did she do a duet with Sammy Davis Jr?

  41. aubreyaub

    lyrianmusic

    +windstorm1000 This incredible arrangement was by Nelson Riddle.

  45. Sam Colón

  50. Raul Costa

    A maior voz cantando a maior música.

  51. Modeltnick

    The 1950s were some of the best years every experienced by the human race.  Life was good. People respected each other. And the cars were works of art!

    Roger Baker

    Tabitha Palmer See who founded the KKK.

    Roger Baker

    Societal Revolution Indeed! The record-buying public had to be , in great measure , "white" people. Nat was universally popular.

    David Stuart

    Those 1950's cars you can still see in Havana. The music not so easily.

    Vince Kyfes

    except in Korea

  52. kirby19711

    Inesquecível Nat!!!

  56. Sergio braga osorio

    you touch my lips, you touch my love , so tenderly.....

  57. yankiemog

    This guy was really something and brought so much pleasure to so many millions and yet there were racist elements who would have dragged him down for no other reason than he was black and doing better than they were.

    kirby19711

    No doubt about that...He was "The Jackie Robinson of entertainment"....A movie is long overdue. ...

    dskyyksd

    He was the first black entertainer to host his own television variety show. It was cancelled after only a year because he couldn't find a sponsor who was able or willing to ignore boycotts in the South.

    Roger Baker

    yankiemog And whom, do you suppose, had the disposable income to buy this man's records...? Oh, yeah...all those 'prejudiced' white folk.

  58. Flora

    Saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade, saudade... I can't forget...

  65. Terry Corcoran

    Best vocal version of all time...

  66. Carlos Cabero el propio y.

    This music, this piece, is my favourite. I enjoy the light music on 30`s, 40`s and 50`s but "Tenderly" in the Nat King Cole voice carry me toward a wonderful world.

  67. gentlemanmag
