"YOU CAN'T JUDGE A BOOK BY IT'S COVER"

Chorus 1
Oh, you can't judge a book by its cover,
No, you have to look inside.
And a car of a nicer colour
Doesn't mean a better ride.
It's not what's on the outside,
But what's inside that counts.
You've got to look at someone's heart
To know what they're about.

[How can you tell?]

Spoken lead vocal
How can you tell just by a passing glance?
[How can you tell?]
How can you make up your mind
Without giving them a chance?
[How can you tell?]
How can you tell just what a person's like?
[How can you tell?]
Unless you get to know them,
Your opinion may not be right!

[Repeat Chorus 1]

[How can you tell?]

Spoken lead vocal
I've seen many books today
With a cover shiny and nice,
[How can you tell?]
But when I read what was inside,
Why, it wasn't worth the price!
[How can youtell?]
So in making up your mind about someone,
Don't react in haste.
[How can you tell?]
Remember that the greatest proof of the pudding
Is in the taste! [Umm-umm!]

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Spoken lead vocal
So every now and then you're bound to meet somebody new,
Who may seem a bit unusual or different than you.
They may be putting up a front or wearing a disguise,
But if you start to be their friend, you may find they're very nice!

Chorus 2
Oh, you can't judge a book by its cover,
No, you have to look inside.
And a car of a nicer colour
Doesn't mean a better ride.
It's not what's on the outside,
But what's inside that counts.
You've got to look at someone's heart
To know what they're about.
It's not what's on the outside,
But what's inside that counts.
You've got to look at someone's heart
To know what they're about.
You've got to look at someone's heart
To know what they're about.
