You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover
No, you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover

When I was young and went to school
My mama taught me the magic rule
And what she said I tried my best to follow
She said

You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover
No, you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover

Then I left school and moved around
And what I saw and what I found
Made me remember what she said to follow
She said

You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover
No, you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover

And now I think, by now I'd know, that what appears is not always so
And I remember what she said to follow
She said

You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover
No, you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge a Book by looking at the cover
