    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.
