    Find out how the lyrics to the Beatles song The Word came to be written.

    John Lennon’s lyrics to the word are inspired by the religious experience that is developed by the use of LSD. The use of the word love was not about the love between a boy and girl, but more about the love that offered freedom and enabled people to see the light, almost in a religious way. The song is John’s way of showing that the word love and peace were the way forward.

    John, Paul and George harmonise together for the singing with John taking the main lead; Paul plays piano on the word and George Martin joins the Beatles on the harmonium. The song fades out quite early suggesting that the recording of the song never really got finished the way that they had intended.
