What the Beatles said about “The Word”

JOHN 1980: "’The Word’ was written together (with Paul), but it’s mainly mine. You read the words, it’s all about gettin’ smart. It’s the marijuana period. It’s love. It’s a love and peace thing. The word is ‘love,’ right?"

PAUL circa-1994: "We smoked a bit of pot, then we wrote out a multi-colored lyric sheet, the first time we’d ever done that. We normally didn’t smoke when we were working."
