Now that I’m 64:  Revisiting  a Beatle’s Classic

Remember the charming song, “When I’m 64” from the Beatles’ 1967 album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band?



45 years later it might go something like this


Now that I’m older, losing my hair

Oh so many years now

Will you still be sending me a valentine

Birthday greetings, bottle of Cialis®?


If I’d been out without my Depends®

Would you lock the door,

Will you still tease me, will you still clean me

Now that I’m 64


oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo

You’ve gotten older too, (ah ah ah ah ah)

And if you say the word,

I promise no more messy poo.


I can be handy sorting our meds

When your arthritis kicks in

You can knit us sweaters to keep us warm

With fuel costs too high to turn our heat on.


Doing ointment rubs, watching “Maude” re-runs

Who could ask for more?

Though you still knee me, though you still heed me

When I incessantly snore?


Every summer we can hit casinos

In Vegas with senior discounts, but

We’ll have to scrimp and save.

Social Security and a default by B of A

left us a modest IRA.


Send me an e-mail, type me a Tweet

Stating things so clear

Indicate precisely what you mean to say

My cognitive skills are wasting away


Give me your answer and use a bullhorn

My hearing’s also going

Will you still tease me, will you still clean me

Now that I’m sixty four

  1. Every now and then I will hear this song in my head. Come next February is when I’ll be 64. Where does the time go by Larry? I can remember when the Beatles first came to the states in February 4, 1964. Then the appearance on Ed Sullivan and as the saying goes, the rest is history. go on…

  2. Delightful, Larry! Keep your sense of humor and getting older will be much less of a big deal!

    • Actually Joan, it isn’t my birthday. But I can see where I sent this message. I’ll be 64 this December. This was just a little fun with a Beatles song that has been around in my mind for some while now.
