When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

''(Ooh)'' Let it be, let it be
A-let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the broken-hearted people
Living in the world agree
There will be an answer
Let it be

For though they may be parted
There is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Yeah, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
A-let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
A-let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

And when the night is cloudy
There is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow
Let it be

I wake up to the sound of music
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom
Let it be

Yeah, let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
Oh, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
Oh, there will be an answer
Let it be

Let it be, let it be
Let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom
Let it be

I can still remember my mom and older sister crowded around our little AM radio when this song came on, writing down the lyrics. This song instantly transports me back to the 70s. Powerful.
Always thought this is was one of the Beatle's most overrated songs. Sounds great but the lyrical content/message is ho-hum at best. Still -rate it as an 8.   
30 people recognize this tripe for it is{#Nyah}
Fond memories of my summer busking in Brussels and Amsterdam for my dinner money...

This is one of the time-and-place songs for me, I remember exactly where I was and who I was with the first time I *really* listened to this song. It was an emotional time, and that's probably why it stuck with me. Not my favorite Beatles tune, but still worth a 9. Happy Friday!

Coming from a guy with over ten printed pages of songs rated with 10.
How do you take yourself seriously? 

 
Oh, so that's what ratings envy looks like.  
i just recently learned that Mother Mary in this song was not the mother of Jesus but McCartney's mother
like Lennon's mother McCartney's mother also died when he was a teen but they didn't have the weird relationship like Lennon did
Mary McCartney was a nurses assistant and/or midwife, he said he remembers his mother going out at all hours of the night on her bicycle to help women give birth 
lovely transition from Wailin' Jennys

Always a peep that even though 1660 ratings give it a 9 AVERAGE LOL  thanks for your "insight" MrsTom lol 
I adore the songs these guys churned-out so effortlessly. This one however, is one of those which I do not play very often. Paul repeats himself too much, and the lyrics are very pithy.
We REALLY need an 11.
