And if somebody loved me like she do me
Oh, she do me, yes, she does


This is a lyric of the song "Don't let me down" of the Beatles. Why is it "she do me"?

    The Beatles were hugely influenced by the music of the Black singers of blues and rock-and-roll from the USA (as was Elvis Presley). This reflects the typical grammar of the people who sang that kind of music.

    I just noticed that in the "rooftop" video, they don't sing it that way, but they do in the version on "The Blue Album".
