Do you know all the words to The Beatles’ iconic hit? In 1967, the Fab Four were asked to write a song that would be understood by people of all nations. This Valentine’s Day, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of “All You Need is Love”. Sing along now…

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

Love, love, love
Love, love, love
Love, love, love

All you need is love, 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…

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

 

 

Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney
