You can't judge an apple by looking at a 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

Oh, can't you see, oh, you misjudge me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
Can't judge a book by looking at the cover, oh, my

Oh, come on in closer, baby
Hear what else I gotta say
You got your radio turned down too low
Turn it up, oh

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 a sister by looking at her brother
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover

Oh, can't you see, oh, you misjudge me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
Can't judge a book by looking at the cover, come on

You can't judge a fish by lookin' in the pond
You can't judge right from looking at the wrong
You can't judge one by looking at the other
You can't judge a book by looking at the cover

Oh, can't you see, oh, you can't judge me?
Look like a farmer but I'm a lover
Can't judge a book by looking at the cover
