"All you need is love
All you need is love
All you need is love, love
Love is all you need"
The song's message is pretty obvious. The singer is trying to tell the world
that, to solve any problem you have, all you need to do is love and things
will turn out ok.
One verse of symbolism: "Nothing you can say but you can learn
how to play the game"

The game is a symbol for life, learning how to play it is a symbol for
controlling it.
The term "love" is used very loosely and often in this song. I personally think that you
need more than love to survive, like food and water for example. These lyrics are
poetic because of how joyous they make you feel. Even though I don't entirely agree,
the song did have me singing along and even believing for short time that all one really
does need is love.

"I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world."
Louis Armstrong is making this song to talk about the great beauty found in the world
through his eyes. Even though all the bad things, he still see good through it all. Lists of
beautiful things are sung throughout the song. The theme of the song is that the world truly
is very special and extremely beautiful, and Armstrong wants everyone to truly see the
world as he sees, a wonderful one.
Extremely light and uplifting tone;
I like these lyrics because it moves negative thoughts and outlooks onto the world
towards a better one. The world really can be a beautiful place if you take a moment
and look around, which is what the singer is trying to tell everyone. That is why this
song is so poetic, because of its ability to move ones feelings around.
