There are 2 types of people – those who are “getting older” and those who are not “getting older”. Those who are not getting older are dead. I’m proud to be “getting older”.
Here’s a nice music break from some young gals (MonalisaTwins) singing a great Beatles song (who were they?) “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?
You’ll be older, too
Aaah, 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?”
