“When I’m 64”

ChezHelvetica celebrated a 64-year old’s birthday with the iconic lyrics of this Beatle’s song and Bon Appetit’s Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies. These lyrics and birthday boy favorites Peanut Butter and Blackberry Preserves made quite the surprise party…

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 ’til quarter to three, would you let me drive
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I’m sixty-four?

You’ll be older too. 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. 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?
