Lyrics
Now, you can't tell the honey, babe, lookin' at the bee

You can't tell an apple lookin' at the tree

Can't tell the sister lookin' at the brother
Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover
Baby can't you see how you misjudged me

I may look like a farmer, baby, but I'm a lover

Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover

SOLO


Now, you can't judge the sugar lookin' in the cane

You can't tell a woman lookin' at her man

Can't judge a father lookin' at the brother

Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover

Baby can't you see how you misjudged me

I may look like a farmer, baby, but I'm a lover

Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover

Now, you can't tell the fish lookin' in the pond

You can't judge a right lookin' at the wrong

Can't judge the one lookin' at the other

Can't judge a book lookin' at the cover

Baby can't you see how you misjudged me

I may look like a farmer, baby, but I'm a lover

Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover

Now, you can't judge the sugar lookin' in the cane

You can't tell a woman lookin' at her man

Can't judge a moth
Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover
Baby can't you see how you misjudged me
I may look like a farmer, baby, but I'm a lover

Can't tell a book lookin' at the cover
