"The Word" Lyrics

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Original Manuscript (1965)

(1) Say the word and you'll be free
Say the word and be like me
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love
It's so fine, it's sunshine, it's the word - love

In the beginning
I misunderstood
But now I've got it
the word is good.

Spread the word, and you'll be free
Spread the word and be like me
Spread the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love
it's so fine, it's sunshine, it's the word - love

Everywhere I go,
I hear it said
in the good and the bad books
that I have read.

(1) Say the word..repeat......

Now that I know
what I feel must be right
I'm here to show
everybody the light.

Give the word a chance to say,
that the word is just the way
It's the word I'm thinking of
and the only word is love . . . . .
it's so fine, it's sunshine, it's the word.

As Released by the Beatles (1965)

Say the word and you'll be free
Say the word and be like me
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine
It's the word love.

In the beginning I misunderstood
But now I've got it the word is good.
Spread the word and you'll be free
Spread the word and be like me
Spread the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine,
It's the word love.

Everywhere I go I hear it said
In the good and the bad books that I have read.
Say the word and you'll be free
Say the word and be like me
Say the word I'm thinking of
Have you heard the word is love?
It's so fine, it's sunshine
It's the word love.

Now that I know what I feel must be right
I'm here to show everybody the light.
Give the word a chance to say
That the word is just the way
It's the word I'm thinking of
And the only word is love.
It's so fine, it's sunshine
It's the word love.

Say the word love
Say the word love
Say the word love
Say the word love.

I'm totally astonished with the Beatles's work because they did their songs like a poem because they always had the perfect rhyme to do their songs, this like a literary work.
