(J. Lyon)

Joseph and sweet Mary scratching in the sand
His lost expression like he doesn't understand
But she seems happy and that's all that really counts
So they keep moving but, oh Lord, he has his doubts
Then that light, light comes shining
From the east and Mary has a child
Joseph sighs and just shields his eyes
Smiles, smiles, smiles smiles his wistful smile
You can get it if you really want it
You can get it but you better be sure now
Cause if you want it then
You're gonna get it
You're gonna get it right now

True love is so hard to find
True love is so hard to find
Break your back and then you lose your mind
True love is so hard to find

Johnnie F. and Jackie looked like they had it all
Start at the top, you never think you'll fall
So much in love, always together
Till they ran into bad Texas weather now
Trouble down, down down down in Dallas
Shots rang out in the middle of the afternoon
Now we know all about a certain Miss Monroe
And Jackie K. turned into Jackie O.
You can get it if you really want it
You can get it but you better be sure now
Cause if you want it then
You're gonna get it
You're gonna get it right now

True love is so hard to find
True love is so hard to find
Break your back and then you lose your mind
True love is so hard to find

You can get it if you really want it
You can get it but you better be sure now
Cause if you want it then
You're gonna get it
You're gonna get it right now

True love is so hard to find
True love is so hard to find
Break your back and then you lose your mind
True love is so hard to find
