    Badfinger Handwritten Lyrics - Pete Ham - "Apple of My Eye". Direct from the hand of ill-fated frontman/songwriter Pete Ham, offered here is a complete handwritten lyric sheet for the 1973 Badfinger single "Apple of My Eye" (the last single ever issued for the band through Apple Records). This song was written specifically as a farewell and thank you to The Beatles, and their record label, Apple. After this record Badfinger signed with Warner Brothers. Penned by Ham on the reverse of a 8 x 11.75 sheet of paper in purple ink, the lyrics read, in full: "Oh I'm sorry but its time to move away - Though inside my heart I really want to stay - Believe the love that we have is so sincere - You know the gift you have will always be - Your the apple of my eye - Your the apple of my heart - But now the time has come to part - Oh I'm sorry but its time to make a stand - Though we never meant to bite the loving hand - And now the time has come to walk alone We were the children now were overgrown - Your the apple of my eye - Your the apple of my heart - But now the time has come to part." Some light surface loss to the reverse side of the page, however not affecting the lyrics on the front whatsoever. A superb investment-grade relic for the collection of the serious Badfinger fan! From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
