I don't understand your complaint/idea.
You only want results when all the words appear in the title_text?
But the top results are precisely that. They're listed first.
What difference does it make that you get an extra 100k results that are irrelevant?

And you have to count on 
1) someone submitted the text you seek
2) you've requested the spelling/wording that matches what's on file.
3) you're looking in the right category

Youve Got To Be Carefully Taught
[Note: "got to" not "have to", and it's a song title, not a quote.]
