"One Bad Apple" was a #1 single released by The Osmonds in December 1970. It hit the top of Billboard's Hot 100 Chart in February 1971 and stayed there for five weeks; it also reached #6 on the R chart.
The song was written by George Jackson who originally had the Jackson 5 in mind when he wrote it. He also wrote the single "Double Lovin'" for the Osmonds. Both "One Bad Apple" and the Donny Osmond-credited single "Sweet and Innocent" are on the 1971 album Osmonds.
In 1997, singer Aaron Carter covered the song on his debut album Aaron Carter.
"One Bad Apple" was also used as the theme to The Osmonds cartoon show on ABC-TV.
According to Donny Osmond, Michael Jackson later told him that the Jackson 5 almost recorded this song first, but chose to record "ABC" instead.

Lyrics

I can tell that you've been hurt
By that look on your face girl
Some guy brought safety to your happy world
You need love but you're afraid that if you give in
Some one else will come along
And sock it to you again
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch
Ooooo, give it one more try before you give up on a love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Ooooo, I don't care what they say I care what you've heard
I could make you happy baby and satisfy you too
But how can I when you won't give me a chance to prove my love to you
Won't you give me just one little chance
I give you my guarantee that you won't be hurt again
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch
Ooooo, give it one more try before you give up on a love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Ooooo, I don't care what they say I care what you've heard
I've been noticing you baby for long, long time
I'm not ashamed to tell the world that you really messed up my mind
Girl, to me you're like a dream come true
I would rather hurt myself then to ever hurt you
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch
Ooooo, give it one more try before you give up on a love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Ooooo, I don't care what they say I care what you've heard.
