Can you judge a man
By the way he wears his hair?
Can you read his mind
By the clothes that he wears?
Can you see a bad man
By the pattern on his tie?

Chorus:

Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I

Could you tell a wise man
By the way he speaks or spells?
Is this more important
Than the stories that he tells?
And call a man a fool
If for wealth he doesn't strive

Chorus:

Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I

Could you condemn a man
If your faith he doesn't hold?
Say the colour of his skin
Is the colour of his soul?
Or could you say if men
For king and country all must die?

Chorus
Then Mister you're a better man than I
Yeah You're a better man than I
Oh Mister You're a better man than I
Yeah Mister You're a better man than I
