Ellas McDaniel (born Ellas Otha Bates, December 30, 1928 – June 2, 2008), known as Bo Diddley, was an American rhythm & blues and rock & roll singer, guitarist, songwriter and music producer. He is cited as a key figure in the transition of blues into rock and roll, by introducing more insistent, driving rhythms and a harder-edged guitar sound. His use of African rhythms and the signature "Bo Diddley beat", a simple five-accent hambone rhythm, is a cornerstone of r&b, rock, pop and hip hop. Show more ...

You Can't Judge a Book
By Bo Diddley

You can't judge an apple by lookin' at the tree
You can't judge honey by lookin' at the bee
You can't judge a daughter by lookin' at the mother
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

(Aww, come on in here closer baby, hear what else I got to say --
You got your radio turned down too low -- turn it up!)

You can't judge sugar by lookin' at the cane
You can't judge a woman by lookin' at her man
You can't judge a sister by lookin' at her brother
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Aw, how am I doin', baby?

You can't judge a fish by lookin' in the pond
You can't judge right from lookin' at the wrong
You can't judge one by lookin' at the other

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover
