Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover
Don't judge me by the way I look
and the way I have my hair.
Don't judge me by my dirty shoes
and the way my jeans have tears.
Don't think because I have tattoos
that I'm not very nice to know.
Don't think because I swear a lot
that I have no feelings to show.
My appearance is a shield of defence
to hide my feelings deep inside.
My sensitivity is my weakness
so my appearance tells a lie.
I’m now living with this woman
and she thinks I am her man.
The fact is I really detest her,
but I’m doing the best I can.
I didn’t actually marry her,
her husband invited me in.
Invited, isn’t exactly the truth,
I took his body from him.
