When I’m Sixty Four

When I’m Sixty Four (1967) by The Beatles
band, lyrics, video, Wiki-band, Wiki-album, Wiki-song

[Verse 1]
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 till quarter to three
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will 

[Bridge 1]
Oooh, you’ll be older too
And if you say the word
I could stay with you (Aaaah)

[Verse 2]
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?

[Bridge 2]
Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight, if it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save (We shall scrimp and save)
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck, and Dave

[Verse 3]
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 for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

Note: one more year to go …….
