​Beauty's Only Skin Deep

This song is by The Temptations.

So in love, sad as could be
Cause a pretty face got the best of me
Suddenly you came into my life
And gave it meaning and pure delight

Now good looks I've learned to do without
Cause now I know it's love that really counts
'Cause I know (beauty's only skin deep, yeah yeah yeah)
I know that beauty's only skin deep (beauty's only skin deep, oh yeah)
Yes, indeed

Now you speak your words warm and sincere
And let me know that your love is near
A pretty face you many not possess
But what I like about you is your tenderness

A pretty face may be some guys' taste
But I'll take lovin' in its place
'Cause I know that (beauty's only skin deep, yeah yeah yeah)
And you know that beauty's only skin deep (beauty's only skin deep, oh yeah)
Oh baby, oh yeah (oh yeah, oh yeah)

(Beauty's only skin deep, yeah yeah yeah) Ooh-hoo-hoo
(Beauty's only skin deep, oh yeah) Yes it is, listen to me

My friends ask what do I see in you
But it goes deeper than the eye can view
You have a pleasing personality
And that's an ever lovin' rare quality

Now show me a girl, a girl that's fine
And I'll choose the one with true lovin' every time
I know that (beauty's only skin deep, yeah yeah yeah)
And I believe that you know that beauty's only skin deep (beauty's only skin deep, oh yeah)

So if you're lookin' for a lover (oh yeah)
Don't judge a book by its cover (oh yeah)
She may be fine on the outside (oh yeah)
But so untrue on the inside (oh yeah)
Ooh, oh yeah
