All You Need Is Love - The Beatles

So... I ran into the song "All You Need Is Love" by The Beatles on line the other day. As I watched John Lennon chew on gum between verses (Nom, nom, nom) and the rest of the band played along. I couldn't help but notice that this song makes little to NO SENSE! How about "All You Need Is To Make Sense" by Lennon/McCartney/Flores? I've posted the lyrics below and highlighted the only line in the verse which makes some sense. The chorus makes some sense too, "All you need is love", but that's such an easy thing to believe when your name is Paul McCartney, half the worlds female population are throwing their nickers at you, and your royalty checks are rolling in with six zeros. (Wipes rotten tomatoes off face)






Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.(WTF?)
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung. (WTF?)
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game - It's easy.(WTF?)
There's nothing you can make that can't be made. (WTF?)
No one you can save that can't be saved. (WTF?)
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time - It's easy.(WTF!!?)
 
All you need is love, all you need is love, love is all you need.
 
There's nothing you can know that isn't known. 
Nothing you can see that isn't shown. (WTF?)
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. It's easy.
(WTF!!!? Hello Afghanistan.)
 
All you need is love, all you need is love, love is all you need.
