i recall what i said to myself the very first day we met
it’s just a matter of time till i make him mine
and then i found to my regret
he was easy to love but so hard to get.
all the girls are crazy for him and as if that ain’t enough
i took a look in his little black book and the compet-tion surelly stopped
he’s easy to love but so hard to get.
now if at first you don’t succeed
you know you got to try and try again
and if at first he don’t follow your leave
you got to keep on going after him until you win.
don’t you know you’ll never love a guy who’s easy to get
that wouldn’t be much fun
there’s never a guy a standing right by there’s always got to be the one
who’s easy to love but so hard to get.
— instrumental —
yes he’s easy to love but so hard to get
but i can’t forget he’ll be mine it’s just a matter of time…
