Twelve years later the song was revived by Donny Osmond. It was released on February 19, 1972, and reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 1, 1972. It peaked at #1 in April 1972 on both the Canadian RPM singles chart for three weeks and the UK Singles Chart for five weeks the following July.[5] Billboard ranked this version as the #67 song for 1972.[6] The song was also covered by British pop group S Club Juniors in 2002. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on March 24, 1972.

On March 15, 1972, DJ Robert W. Morgan played the Donny Osmond version for 90 minutes straight on KHJ in Los Angeles. After receiving numerous calls from listeners, LAPD raided the station studios. Confused, the officers left without making any arrests.[7]
