Yeahhh (2x)
I can tell 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
Someone else will come along
And sock it to you again

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl,
Oooh, give it one more try before you give up on love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Oooh, I don't care what they say I don't care what you've heard

I could make you happy baby, 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 girl
Oooh, give it one more try before you give up on love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Oooh, I don't care what they say I don't care what you've heard now

I've been noticing you baby for a long, long time (long long time now)
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 (dream come true now)
I would rather hurt myself, than to ever hurt you

One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Oooh, give it one more try before you give up on love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Oooh, I don't care what they say I don't care what you've heard now
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl
Oooh, give it one more try before you give up on love
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl

(Fade out)
