point of view: will you still love me?

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 meWhen I'm sixty-four?

You could be handy mending a fuse
When the 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?

You'll be older too, ah ah ah ah ah
And if you say the word, I could stay with you!

Every summer we can rent a cottageIn the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear, we shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee, Vera, Chuck, and Dave

Send me a postcard, drop me a lineStating 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?
with apologies to The Fab Four

And you'd best send Vicus a hug cos he told us it was your birthday.

Now...I have some birthday presents to be wrapped.
Have lots of fun.

Dave said...

When you are 64 I shall be... oh...

*counts on fingers and toes*

...dead probably.

Christopher said...

Goodness, yes! Especially if you go on producing wonderful posts like this - and I speak with the authority of one who is already Older, Dafter, Fatter, Balder. It doesn't take long...

Vicus Scurra said...

What Dave said.

I, Like The View said...

Vicus nooooooooooooooooo neither of you can possibly be that old. . . are is it that I'm not as young as I think I am?


Christopher I'll take that as a warning

Mel said...

Nothing wrong with either, methinks.
Both of you are keepers.

Z said...

Happy birthday, darling.

Mel said...

Any wager on how many times he's groaned in my general direction? LOL

I, Like The View said...

Z thank you!

Mel I'm liking being on the "keep" list
