A Little Ditty for Thursday
…………………………………….Otis Redding sings a sincere suggestion to… Try A Little Tenderness
“It’s not just sentimental, no, no
She has her grief and care, yeah, yeah
But the soft words
That are spoke so gentle, yeah, yeah, yeah
It makes it easier
Easier to bare
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
All you’ve gotta do is, man..
Hold her where you want her
Squeeze her, don’t tease her
Never leave her, get to her
Just try, try a little tenderness, yeah yeah yeah
You got to know how to love her, man
Take this advice, man…”
It seems to me that this song grows more and more beautiful each and every time I hear it. This incredible piece of timeless music has also acquired an entirely new found sentiment within my once very skeptical heart.
Not that additional reasons are necessary to be in awe of the presence Otis Redding has on stage, or the power of his voice, etc… BUT, as an avid user and fan of the word, “man,” Mr. Redding can simply do no wrong in my book.
A few assignments must be tended to for the remainder of this lovely afternoon of passing clouds, but for the time being, please enjoy this Classic Tune…
Oh! And Another Awesome Aspect of Today..
