When I'm 64


Friday, January 11, 2013

1967 Beatles

When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine, birthday greetings, bottle of wine?
If I'd been out 'til quarter to three, would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm sixty-four?


You'll be older too
Ah, and if you say the word, I could stay with you
I could be handy, mending a fuse when your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside,
Sunday mornings, go for a ride


Doing the garden, digging the weeds, who could ask for more?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm sixty-four?
Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight if it's not to, dear We shall scrimp and save
Ah, grandchildren on your knee, Vera, Chuck and Dave



Send me a postcard, drop me a line stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, yours sincerely wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form, mine forever more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm sixty-four?

    When I hear that song, I always think...why don't you feed yourself?

    I remember that song! And I remember when I used to think 64 was so old. Now it's only 6 years away for me and it doesn't seem so old anymore!
