The Monkees — You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover lyrics

1: You can't judge a apple by lookin' at the tree.
Can't judge a honey by lookin' at the bee.
Can't judge a daughter by lookin' at the mother.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
CHORUS: Oh-oh, can't you see? You misjudged me, baby!
I look like a farmer but--I'm a lover!
Can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
2: You can't judge sugar by lookin' at the pan.
Can't judge a woman by lookin' at her man.
Can't judge one by lookin' at the other.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
CHORUS: Oh-oh, can't you see? You misjudged me!
I look like a farmer but--I'm a lover!
Can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
3: You can't judge a fish by lookin' in the pond.
Can't judge right by lookin' at the wrong,
Can't judge a-one by lookin' at the other.
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
CHORUS: Oh-oh, can't you see? You misjudged me!
I look like a farmer but--I'm a lover!
Can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover.
4: Can't judge a apple by lookin' at the tree, baby.
Can't judge honey by lookin' at the bee.
Can't judge a daughter by lookin' at the mother.
You can't a book by lookin' at the cover.
CHORUS: Oh-oh, can't you see? You misjudged me!
I look like a farmer but--I'm a lover!
Can't judge a book a-by lookin' at the cover.
