YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK
(Words and music by Rick Springfield)

You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover
No you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover

When I was young and went to school
My mama taught me the magic rule
And what she said I tried my best to follow

She said "You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover
And you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
No You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover"

Then I left school and moved around
And what I saw and what I found
Made me remember what she said to follow
Oh

She said "You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover
No, you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
And You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover"

And now I think by now I'd know
That what appears is not always so
And I remember what she said to follow

She said "You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover
And you can't judge a man by looking at the cover
No You Can't Judge A Book by looking at the cover"
