You can't judge an apple by lookin' at the tree.
Can't judge honey by lookin' at the bee.
Can't judge a daughter by lookin' at the mother.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.

Oh-oh, can't you see? You misjudged me, baby!
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover!
Can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.

You can't judge sugar by lookin' at the cane.
Can't judge a woman by lookin' at her man.
Can't judge one by lookin' at the other.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.


You can't judge a fish by lookin' in the bowl.
Can't judge right by lookin' to the wrong,
Can't judge a-one by lookin' to the other.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
