I was the victim of a very traumatic event last week! Some of you ( a few of you anyway) may recall that in 1967, Lennon and McCartney wrote a little ditty called "when I’m 64." It had a typically great Beatles melody, and Paul sang the lead. It never made number 1, but it got lots of air time that summer.
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’ve 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?
I can remember wondering what it would be like to be terribly old, like 64. Well now I know!! McCartney will be 64 this year too. That’s not all I have in common with him. He has $400 million – I have $400. How’s that for a coincidence?
So many cruises, and so little time.
