Lyrics

Well, I’m Sixty-Four

 

Verse 1

 

Back in 1967

Paul McCartney said

Will you still need me

Will you still feed me

When I’m sixty-four

 

Verse 2

 

It was the summer of love

The times they were a changin’

And rapidly fadin’

But the summer doesn’t know

Where the fall and winter will go

 

Chorus

 

Well, I’m sixty-four

The years went by with a roar

I ain’t no dinosaur

Just because, well, I’m sixty-four

 

 

Verse 3

 

The years don’t stop for anyone

By and by they go                                  

Young and innocent

We were back then

So much we didn’t know

 

Verse 4

 

Getting older is the road we’re on

Wising up as we pass through                         

The evening

Figures out

What the morning never knew

 

Chorus

 

Well, I’m sixty-four

The years went by with a roar

I ain’t no dinosaur

Just because, well, I’m sixty-four

 

 

End / Bridge

 

So, do you still need me?

Will you still feed me?

Will you receive me?

Please never leave me

Do you believe me?

When I say, well, I’m sixty-four

I’m sixty-four

Oh yeah! I’m really sixty-four!
