As one person commented on YouTube, "somewhere John Lennon is smiling." And after watching this video, we think you will too.

This is two-year-old Diogo Mello and his father covering The Beatles classic 'Don't Let Me Down' - (how long til we see them on 'Ellen'?).

The original was recorded in 1969 during the "tumultuous 'Get Back (Let It Be)' recording sessions." It was released as a B side to the number one single 'Get Back', which was recorded the same day.

Richie Unterberger of Allmusic called it "one of the Beatles' most powerful love songs."
