  1. When I'm 64

From the album Demos Vol. 2

This tongue-in-cheek ditty actually has a nice message. We learned it to sing at a birthday party for a friend who was turning 64. He loved it, the crowd love it, so we added it to our song list.

Lyrics

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

You could be handy, mending a fuse
When my lights have gone
I 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 & 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
Hoo!
