Hey guys, what’s up?
Ethan here, from RealLife English, with another kickass “Learn English with Music” Lesson
I think you’re really going to dig this week’s lesson, you’re going to love it,
because it is here by popular request.
Are you ready?
“Let it be, Let it be, let it be, let it be…”
That’s right, this week’s song is a classic from the Beatles.
And, although the Beatles are British, this song is a really great way for you to practice
your American T and Glottal Stop T. I’m not exactly sure why the Beatles’ song sounds
quite American, but there ya go.
And this song was a little bit hard to explain at times because it is very full of metaphors
that are quite open to interpretation by the listener.
So, I tried to bring you some good insight, by doing some research online, and also just
from some of my own interpretations, based on the lyrics.
And I would love to hear, what do you think this song is about?
Just comment below, after listening to this lesson.
All right guys, without any further ado, let’s jump in!

“Let it Be.”
Hey guys, I’m back!
I hope that you enjoyed learning with the Beatles.
I know a lot of you had wanted to see something that was not new.
So there you go.
And I just wanted to wrap this up (to end this) video by actually
sharing with you a bit more of the meaning from what I found online.
But first, what I would like you to do is PRESS PAUSE and go down to the comments and
write, what do you think that this song is about?
Before I actually tell you what I found online.
Are you ready?
All right, are you back?
Did you write what you think below?
So what I found through my research was that this song is actually based on a dream that
Paul McCartney had, where his mother came to him and told him the words, “Let it be.”
This was very meaningful to Paul because his mother died when he was very young.
And some other insights that I saw about it was that it may have perhaps come at a difficult
period in Paul McCartney’s life when the Beatles were actually breaking up.
So, only Paul knows for sure, but I hope that helps you to understand the lyrics a little
