I cannot figure out how to make a 3 circle veen diagram from the following problem. Can someone please help me?

Country-westren songs emphasize three basic themes: love, prison, and trucks. A survet of the local country-westren radio station produced the following results:
12 songs were about a truck driver who is in love while in prison
2 songs were about people in prison who aren't in love and don't drive trucks
8 songs about people who aren't in prison, aren't in love, and don't drive trucks
13 songa are baout prisoners in love
28 were about people in love
18 songs were about a lovesick truck driver
16 songs were about truck drivers who are not in prison
3 songs were about a truck driver in love.

make three circles which overlap.

Like this:

You three circles will be truck drivers, love, and prison. Fill in the areas.

This site shows an example of a Venn diagram.

Label each of the three circles: Love, Prison, Trucks.

12 songs were about a truck driver who is in love while in prison
Place this one in the part where all three circles overlap.

2 songs were about people in prison who aren't in love and don't drive trucks
This one would only go in the Love part.

I'm sure with bobpursley's answer and these examples you can complete this diagram.

The last example I gave should be in the PRISON part only.
