The Stones had yet to score their first Top 10 hit in America when they made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show
in 1964. When they returned for their fifth appearance on January 15, 1967, they played this song, but with the lyric altered to "let's spend some time together.
This was an unusual capitulation for The Rolling Stones, but Sullivan was a very big deal and would likely have banned them from the program if they didn't follow the rules. Jagger made his displeasure clear, rolling his eyes when he sang the line. This ended up being the group's last performance on the show with founding member Brian Jones, who died on July 3, 1969. They made one more appearance on the show, November 23, 1969.
