Radio XLIL, side B, track 2: “Tender Lover” by Babyface

Babyface - Tender LoverOh, Babyface, ever since I saw pictures of you from your albums from back when I was recording this music off the radio, it’s been bugging me, and I need to get this off my chest.  You kinda look like Camel from the Sweet Pickles book series:

It might just be me. . .

Anyway, Babyface, no offense is meant by it, because I LOOOVED the Sweet Pickles books.  I had a bunch of them when I was a kid, and I used to watch their adventures on “Captain Kangaroo”, as well.  Man, I miss those Sweet Pickles books.  I gave the ones I had to my nieces and nephews.  It was the right thing to do, since I am childless and pushing 40, but still, Babyface, those were good times.  Oh, and this song is good, too.

“Tender Lover”

<awesome Babyface jam>

Oh!

Woo!

Oh yeah!

Tender lover

Woooah woah

Woooah woah

Oh baby

Eleanor Rigby
Spends half her life all alone

No fault of her own

Made a decision
Love has no place in her home

Love it has a right to go

Love has no limit

If you believe in love it’ll open up
So
Don’t ever give in
‘Cause if it starts ta give, just
Hold on

We didn’t make it
But love’ll getcha by if ya only try
Just don’t give up on love
‘Cause it didn’t work out this time

Tender lover
Girl, I’m so sorry

Well, I never meant ta hurtchoo
I never meant ta break yo heart
Tender lover
So broken-hearted

Well, I never meant ta break ya
Break ya little tender heart

Don’t ever give up

In spite of our love

Love is much too precious
It’s greater than both of us

There’s more than enough

Keep lookin’ fo love

Just be a believer
It’ll give you whatchoo want

Sky is the limit

If you believe in love it’ll open up
So
Don’t ever give in
‘Cause if it starts ta give, just
Hold on

We didn’t make it
But love’ll getchoo by if you only try
Just don’t give up on love
‘Cause it didn’t work out, said it didn’t work out this tiiiiime
Tender lover
Girl, I’m so sorry
Woo!

Well, I never meant ta hurtcha
I never meant ta break yo heart (never meant ta break your heart)
Tender lover
So broken-hearted (so broken, baby)
Well I never meant ta break ya
Break ya little tender heart

Not street smart
I love a tender lova
When I’m undercova

I’m not like any otha brotha

Right face
He’s nothin’ like the man, pa
And like Tye
He’s givin’ you a wash job

Hung ya out ta drip dry

I’d never do that to ya
‘Cause yo too fly

But when I saw ya, I spoke to like a veteran
He shouldn’t’a broke yo heart and been a betta man

Woo!

Hey!

Get Bob outta here!

Yo man, come on

Get him outta here!

Get, get him out!
Nooow!

Whooooooooah

Whooooooooah

Oh baby

Tender love, love, love, love

Love ain’t no limit

You believe in love it’ll open up
So, yeah
Don’t ever give in
If it starts
Hoooooold

We didn’t make it
But love’ll getcha by if you only try
Just don’t give up on love ’cause
It didn’t work out, say it didn’t work out this tiiiiiiiiiiiime
Tender lover
Girl, I’m so sorry

Well, I never meant ta hurtchoo
I never meant ta break yo heart
Tender lover
So broken-hearted

Well, I never meant ta break ya (oh yeah)
Break ya little tender heart
(Oh yeah)

Lover
Ya always tender lovin’ me
Tender love
Ya always tender love

Ohhh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
