Lyrics:

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

[refrain:]
Oh, can't you see?
You misjudged me, baby!
I look like a farmer, but I'm a lover!
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover!

You can't judge sugar by looking at the cane
You can't judge a woman by looking at her man
You can't judge one by looking at other
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover
[refrain]

You can't judge a fish by looking in the pond
You can't judge the right by looking at the wrong
You can't judge one by looking at other
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover
[refrain]

You can't judge sugar by looking at the cane
You can't judge a woman by looking at her man
You can't judge one by looking at other
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover
[refrain]
