[Chorus]
D
Some people call me a bad apple
G                            D
Well I may be bruised but I still taste sweet
D
Some people call me a bad apple
       G                    A           D
But I may be the sweetest apple on the tree

[Verse 1]
D                                         G          D
I've got the notion to tell you about my history, people
D                                            G               D
I've got the notion to tell you about how I came up in the world yeah

[Bridge 1]
            G                F                 D
Now look...I used to go to school and act a clown and fool
     G                     F           B#
And I used to chase the ladies all around - Gimme some
G                      F       D
I used to spend my money and tried acting funny
C                            A
Until I hit my nose on the ground

Ow!

[Chorus]
D
Some people call me a bad apple
G                             D
Well I may be bruised but I still taste sweet
D
Some people call me a bad apple
       G                    A            D
But I may be the sweetest apple on the tree

[Verse 2]
D
Now my teacher tried to tell me
                                               (G)
That I could never succeed in the world of business, yeah.
D
I said,That's o.k. teacher.
                                  (G)           D
Cause I never did want to give anybody the business.
D
But teacher listen
D
Teacher, teacher we got a message for you now
D
Goes like this teacher
D
Oh teacher

[Bridge 2]
G                  F                    D
You egghead You think you've got the world sewed up
G               F             B#
You never did learn how to treat a man
G                   F         D
You need to eat a slice of humble pie
C                             A
And the longer you wait the worse it's gonna taste

[Chorus]
D
Some people call me a bad apple
G                             D
Well I may be bruised but I still taste sweet

It's my time
Hey!
I want everybody to listen to me now
It's my time
Hey!
And I want everybody to listen to me now
Look listen to the record

(End of Free time)

[Bridge 3]
              G         F               D
I'll admit I have been lazy And I've been called crazy
   G             F           B#
In my time I've played and played
    G           F
But I can get down
           D
And quit foolin' around
          C
When the weather gets rough
       A
Situation gets tough

[Chorus]
D
Some people call me a bad apple
G                            D
Well I may be bruised but I still taste sweet
D
Some people call me a bad apple
       G                    A           D
But I may be the sweetest apple on the tree

[Outro]
D
Some people call me a bad apple
        G                    A            D
Well I may be the sweetest apple on the tree
                 G           A           D
I may be the sweetest sweet apple on the tree
                 G           A           D
I may be the sweetest sweet apple on the tree
