I'm cynical, they say
I'm petrified, maybe
Disgusted by his ways
And a conscience is clear
And I fear it is free to betray

Premeditated crime
Now he plans and drinks until it's time
A crutch to use upon his prey
She didn't know it's not the way to love

And I will judge a book by its cover
Because you know it's all we, know it's all we have
And I will judge a book by its cover
So break my binding and tear my paper
Just leave a page to sign your name

It's evident today
And the evidence lays awake
Regretting her last drink
Drank her way to the bed
And she said, "Go ahead," with a wink

Justifies his ways
Now he can't look at her face
He utters those three words
And she's oblivious, but tomorrow she will learn

And I will judge a book by its cover
Because you know it's all we, know it's all we have
And I will judge a book by its cover
So break my binding and tear my paper
Just leave a page to sign your name

Don't worry, I can keep a secret
Don't worry, he can keep a secret
Don't worry
Come on now, doll
You know you've got a secret

And I will judge a book by its cover
Because you know it's all we, you know it's all we have
And I will judge a book by its cover
So break my binding and tear my paper
Just leave a page to sign your name
