Beatles: Act Naturally Meaning

Song Released: 1965


Act Naturally Lyrics

They're gonna put me in the movies
They're gonna make a big star out of me
We'll make a film about a man that's sad and lonely
And all I gotta do is act naturally

Well, I'll bet you I'm gonna be a big star
Might win an Oscar you can never...

    It was written by Johnny Russell and Voni Morrison. Johnny had a great sense of humor and could perform music on stage as well as comedy. He was a funny guy with a great sense of humor. He was also a co-writer on Strait's "Let's Fall To Pieces Together". As far as what the song means it is pretty straight forward.

    I absolutely love this song!! I listened to it over and over in the fourth grade. I don't necesscarily think it has to do with actually being in a movie. He's just saying IF he was in a movie he would be very good at playing the part of a lonely man well, for whatever his reason is.

    The man singing the song has obviosly just been throught a break up, And some time after the break up he gets a role in a moive. Seeing that the part he will play has been apart of his real life, He feels as if he can do it naturally instead of practicing over and over like most actors do.

    Although we all think the beatles have it all, no one is perfect. This song has simple lyrics but a huge meaning. It relates to those who are filled with loneliness, and being a looser. People who have nothing and no one, even big stars can feel like no one can relate to them at times. So when the person gets a role in the movie he is acting naturally by acting naturally lonely. In the sense that he doesn't have to act he can just be himself

    Pretty simple song. The guy is a loser who could easily play the part of a loser in a movie by acting like himself.
