    go as or as go

    "You can't judge a book by its cover," __________.
    A. as the old saying goes
    B. goes as the old saying

    Of course A is right.

    But what about B? I think B is also right.

    I need a native's opinion.

    Thanks!

    Re: go as or as go

    B. is wrong. "As goes the old saying" is a valid alternative to "as the old saying goes."
