The Word” is a song by the Beatles first released on their 1965 album Rubber Soul. It has been cited as the first instance in which the Beatles began writing about love in more abstract terms, versus concrete girl/boy terms, a la “She Loves You“, with preaching lyrics such as “The word is love” and “Say the word and you’ll be free”.
