Sam Cooke - Medley: Try A Little Tenderness / (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons / You Send Me Lyrics




[Try a Little Tenderness]

Oh she may be weary
Women do get wearied
Wearing that same old shaggy dress
And oh when she gets weary
Try a little tenderness,

You won't regret it, no no
Young girls they don't forget it
Love is their whole happiness, yeah
But it's all so easy
try a little tenderness


[(I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons]

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I'll give you my heart

I love you and you alone were meant for me
Please give your loving heart to me
And say we'll never part

I think of you every morning
Dream of you every night
Darling, I'm never lonely
Whenever you are in sight

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart

I love you for sentimental reasons
I hope you do believe me
I've given you my heart


[You Send Me]

Darling you send me. I know you send me
Honest you do [x3]
You thrill me, I know you thrill me
Darling you thrill me
Honest you do
Honest you do
Honest you do

At first I thought it was infatuation
But it lasted so long
Now I find myself wanting
to marry you and take you home

You Send Me [x3]
Honest you do

Whenever I'm with you
Whenever I'm near you
Honest you do
I know when you hold me,
whenever you kiss me

  1. Tommy Whiteman

    From the father Sam Cooke to Cedric hailey. That is a huge gap. Love these two a lot. One of kind voices. Never to be repeated. Soul and R&B.

  5. MissSusieQue1

    I heard an interview with Steve Perry, talking about when he was a kid...listening to Sam Cooke, with his mom, in their TBird driving down the road. He was all of 6 years old and already he recognized that Sam Cooke was something special and he was totally submerged into his style ......Now that I listen to Sam......I can totally hear his influence on Steve's voice and manner of singing.....but ya know, isn't that the way it works eh? One generation influencing the next generation... Sam was one smOoth singer, that's for sure........beautifuL.
