Can’t judge a book by looking at the cover
Can't tell a sister by looking at her mother
Can't tell no man by looking at his brother
Can’t judge a book by looking at the cover

Whoa whoa whoa!
What a lover!
Can’t judge a book by looking at the cover

Can't judge an outlaw by looking at his gun
Can't judge a papa for beating on his son
Can't judge a man for cheating on his wife
Can't judge a hero who cannot fly

Oh what a sinner! 
What a lover!
Can’t judge a book by looking at the cover

You can't judge no book by taking out the cover
You can't judge no woman for making love to her mother
Can't judge an outlaw for looking at his cover
You can't judge no book by taking out the cover
