The Beatles' rooftop concert was the final public performance of the English rock band the Beatles. On 30 January 1969, the band, with keyboardist Billy Preston, surprised a central London office and fashion district with an impromptu concert from the roof of the headquarters of the band's multimedia corporation Apple Corps at 3 Savile Row. In a 42-minute set, the Beatles played nine takes of five songs before the Metropolitan Police asked them to reduce the volume. Footage from the performance was used in the 1970 documentary film Let It Be.





Lyrics


Don't let me down, don't let me down

Don't let me down, don't let me down


Nobody ever loved me like she does

Oh, she does, yeah, she does

And if somebody loved me like she do me

Oh, she do me, yes, she does


Don't let me down, don't let me down

Don't let me down, don't let me down


I'm in love for the first time

Don't you know it's gonna last

It's a love that lasts forever

It's a love that had no past


Don't let me down, don't let me down

Don't let me down, don't let me down


And from the first time that she really done me

Oh, she done me, she done me good

I guess nobody ever really done me

Oh, she done me, she done me good


Don't let me down, hey, don't let me down

Heee! Don't let me down


Don't let me down

Don't let me down, don't let me let down

Can you dig it? Don't let me down
