YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK (by looking at the cover)
(Bo Diddley)
BO DIDDLEY (Checker 1019, 1962)

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

Aaaaww!
Oh, come on in closer baby
Hear what else I got to say
You got your radio turned on too low
Turn it up! Ow!

You can't judge the 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 misjudged me
I look like a farmer, but I'm a lover
Can't judge a book by looking at the cover

Oh, how am I doing baby?
Aww, yeah...

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