She Loves You
The Beatles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

You think you've lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday
It's you she's thinkin' of
And she told me what to say

She says she loves you
And you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she says she knows
You're not the hurtin' kind

She says she loves you
And you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

You know it's up to you
I think it's only fair
Pride can hurt you, too
Apologize to her

Because she loves you
And you know that can't be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

With a love like that
You know you should be glad
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Overall Meaning

The Beatles' "She Loves You" is a joyful song about a woman who loves the singer's friend, but she seems to be distant from him at first. The singer offers advice to his friend, who thinks he has lost the love of the woman. However, when he meets her, she reveals that she still loves him, and she knows he's not "the hurtin' kind." The song is about being grateful for love and the importance of apologizing when we make mistakes.


The song's cheerful vibe and catchy lyrics have made it one of the most iconic songs of The Beatles. It was written in 1963 by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and recorded in the same year. It became the band's fourth UK number one hit in a row and was also a hit in the US. The song's upbeat melody and positive lyrics spoke to the hearts of the public, and it's been a favorite ever since.


The lyrics of "She Loves You" were initially written to be from the perspective of a girl who loves a guy, but it was later rewritten by Paul McCartney and John Lennon to be from the perspective of a male narrator. The song's catchy "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" refrain was inspired by the Isley Brothers' "Twist and Shout." In fact, John Lennon's hoarse voice in the "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" chorus was caused by a cold he had at the time of the recording, which ended up effectively conveying the song's excitement and energy.
