"All You Need Is Love" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

There's nothing you can do that can't be done
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung
Nothing you can say, but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy
Nothing you can make that can't be made
No one you can save that can't be saved
Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time
It's easy

All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need

All you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need

There's nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be
It's easy

All you need is love, all you need is love
All you need is love, love, love is all you need
All you need is love (All together now)
All you need is love (Everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need
Love is all you need

Yesterday
Oh yeah
(She love you, yeah, yeah, yeah)
(She love you, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    General CommentThe line "There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you meant to be" gives me peace of mind in times of trouble...because it tells me that not everything is just left up to chance...we have a higher purpose. Nothing is a coincidence.

    General Commentin a time when the bands like the Rolling Stones were writing songs like Street Fighting Man and Paint it Black which were anti-vietnam songs (dont get me wrong, i think those songs are great), those songs merely stated the problem. The Beatles wrote this song which states the solution, all you need is love. This is just one reason why they are the greatest band ever.

    General Comment"There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done."
    "There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made."
    "Nothing you can see that isn’t shown."

    people think they're powerful but they have limits. you cant do anything special. you cant do anything impossible. You are limited by reality. whats special about winning a gold medal? its not like you did the impossible you just did what was possible. figure out a science formula its know great achevment. if it wasnt possible to figure it out you never would have.

    achevments are nothing all you need is to enjoy life and love. being happy is all that matters.

    General CommentI really love the ending , when paul sings " she loves you ,yeah, yeah yeah." Thats so cool. This song also makes me think of a guy that that got away from me. This is his favorite beatles song. Hey Jason , where ever you are.

    General CommentAnyone notice the sarcastically used governmental tune in the beginning. To me the song ahd always been saying all you need is love. The governmental tune in the beggining though mocks government and how it demotes anddestroys love.

    General CommentThe verses are done in a 7/4 time signature, which I find to be an interesting and odd choice.

    General CommentGood job spreading love, folks.
    Do me a favor...do The Beatles a favor...do John Lennon a favor...do everyone a favor...do yourself a favor:
    LOVE...just love...everybody...including yourself...please.

    "Nothing you can sing that can't be sung"
    You aren't new. Stop holding your pride in your identity and differences. Enjoy all of the differences of all people. Stop fighting because someone is either better than you or completely opposite in some way or another because everyone is. Embrace and love the differences in others and share your interests that are similar.

    Looks mean shit. Cars mean shit. War is shit. Religion means shit. Everything means shit, but LOVE. All you need is love...and not that lame, pathetic dream-love...REAL LOVE, unconditional, friendly, helpful, true, pure love. Forgive, never forget, learn, understand, and turn that knowledge into compassion: a love that CAN NEVER DIE.

    General CommentI love this song... but it still sounds very weird to me to hear the French National Anthem at the beginning... because it’s not about love at all! It’s about bloody flags, people being slaughtered... about going to war, or rather to fight for the Revolution so it’s rather inappropriate when you really think about it.
    But still, great song.
