All You Need Is Love





Paul McCartney is joined here by Queen, Brian Wilson, Rod Stewart, Eric Clapton, Tony Bennett, Ozzy Osbourne, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Bruce Hornsby, and a full orchestra to perform All You Need Is Love. This version also interpolates She Loves You and the British national anthem (replacing the French national anthem from the original). The lyrics are inimitably John Lennon's:


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

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

Nothing you can know that isn't known
Nothing you can see that isn't shown
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
