What common phrase does this rebus represent?

SKIN B-U-T SKIN SKIN SKIN
FLESH FLESH FLESH FLESH
MUSCLE MUSCLE MUSCLE
BONE BONE BONE BONE



Answer

Beauty is only skin deep. When spoken quickly the letters B-U-T sound like the word "beauty," and "B-U-T" is only as deep as the word "SKIN" is.

Good teaser. Although I disagree with the saying. My spouses beauty goes 100% thruout the body.

I rarely get rebuses, but this one I saw immediately! I saw beauty and skin, and that's the only phrase that came to mind (the beauty was only on the first layer, the surface.) Good one! Thanks!

I originally thought it was nothing but skin and bones, but I couldn't figure out how it would represent it.
