Beatles songs, When I'm Sixty Four

When I'm Sixty Four

(Paul McCartney – John Lennon and Paul McCartney)

Albums in which the song is present

   1967 - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
   1999 - Yellow Submarine Songtrack

JOHN 1967: ''When I'm Sixty Four' was something Paul wrote in the Cavern days.
We just stuck in a few more words, like 'grandchildren on your knee,' and 'Vera Chuck and Dave.' It was just one of those ones that he'd had, that we've all got, really – half a song.
And this was just one of those that was quite a hit with us.
We used to do it when the amps broke down, just sing it on the piano.'

JOHN 1972: 'I think I helped Paul with some of the words.'

JOHN 1980: 'Paul's, completely.
I would never dream of writing a song like that.
There's some things I never think about, and that's one of them.

PAUL 1984: 'I wrote the tune when I was about 15, I think, on the piano at home, before I moved from Liverpool.
It was kind of a cabaret tune.
Then, years later, I put words to it.'

PAUL circa-1994: 'I thought it was a good little tune but it was too vaudvillian, so I had to get some cod lines to take the sting out of it, and put the tongue very firmly in cheek.'

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 you still feed me
When I'm sixty four?

You'll be older too
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 too dear
We shall scrimp and save
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 forevermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty four?
Ho!
