When I'm 64!

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? 

oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo 
You'll be older too, (ah ah ah ah 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 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 for evermore 
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, 
When I'm sixty-four? 

Whoo!
