Beatles Album: Abbey Road : Track 16
Lyrics: Lennon, McCartney
The few lyrics to the end were by Paul. The song tells of the balance between giving and taking love. The Beatles The End can be broken down into four distinct sections , all of which are a little abrupt.
All of the Beatles rightly get to play a starring role on what is their last song. Paul starts off with the love being equal lyrics, this is followed by Ringo doing a drum solo.
Then George fires up the guitar solo and does battle with Paul. John, George and Paul finish up by repeating love you 24 times. Then it is the end, but not really as the Beatles finish off their last recorded album with a little ditty about the queen.
