lyrics

So Joseph wandered down to the river to pray
He saw Mary bathing
He could not look away
Now Joseph swore commitment to his wife that day
But when he saw Mary naked
His resolution strayed

And it’s hard
It’s so hard
When she smiles so sweetly

Mary seemed like an innocent chick
But she did subtle things
That made every man
Want to grab her quick
Mary was a lass
Who knew all of those tricks

And it’s hard
And it’s hard
When she smiles so sweetly

So Joseph ran up to the church to confess
But there was little Mary wearing little less than a flimsy silky dress
Joseph closed his eyes the man did his best
But sometimes you just cant tame that beast

And it’s hard
And it’s hard
When she smiles so sweetly

And it’s hard
And it’s so so hard
When she smiles so sweetly
