So in love, sad as could be
'Coz her pretty face got the best of me
Suddenly, you came into my life
And gave it meaning and pure delight

Now, good looks I've learned to do without
'Coz now I know it's love that really counts

'Coz I know that beauty is only skin deep
I know that beauty is only skin deep

Now, you speak your words, warm and sincere
And lets me know that your love is dear
A pretty face you may not possess
But what I like about you is your tenderness

A pretty face may be some guys' taste
But I'll take lovin' in its place

'Coz I know that beauty is only skin deep
And you know that beauty is only skin deep

Baby
Beauty is only skin deep
Beauty is only skin deep

My friends ask what do I see in you
But it goes deeper than the eye can view
You have a pleasin' personality
And that's an ever lovin' rare quality

Now, show me a girl, a girl that's fine
And I'll choose the one with true lovin' every time

'Coz I know that beauty is only skin deep
And I believe that beauty is only skin deep

So if you're lookin' for a lover
Don't judge a book by its cover
She may be fine on the outside
But so untrue on the inside

Beauty is only skin deep
