“Apple” lyric in the Michael Jackson song “Human Nature” (1982)

"Human Nature” is a song on the Michael Jackson album Thriller (1982). The song was written by Steve Porcaro (of the rock band Toto), but the lyrics were revised by the lyricist John Bettis.

The song is about a passerby in New York City. The first verse ends:

“If this town is just an apple
Then let me take a bite.”



Wikipedia: Human Nature (Michael Jackson song)
“Human Nature” is a 1982 song performed by American singer Michael Jackson, and the fifth single from his sixth solo album, Thriller. The track was produced by Quincy Jones and performed by members of Toto with Michael Jackson providing vocals.

It was originally written by keyboardist Steve Porcaro, based on a conversation he had with his young daughter Heather after a boy pushed her at school, Porcaro said “he probably likes you and it’s human nature”. Porcaro, along with some of his bandmates from the band Toto, had been assisting with the production of Thriller, but he had not intended for “Human Nature” to be used by Jackson. However, Thriller producer Quincy Jones inadvertently heard a demo version of the track and thought it would be a great fit for the album. Jones then brought in songwriter John Bettis to rewrite the verses, whose lyrics are about a passerby in New York City.

[Verse 1]
Looking out, across the nighttime
The city winks a sleepless eye
Hear her voice, shake my window
Sweet seducing sighs
Get me out, into the nighttime
Four walls won’t hold me tonight
If this town is just an apple
Then let me take a bite
