Uma música do Paul McCartney por dia - #16 When I'm 64

Acho essa uma das músicas mais fofas dos Beatles. Só o Paul mesmo para criar uma letra dessas - sensível, apesar de parecer apenas engraçadinha à primeira vista. Sim, nós ainda precisamos do Paul, mesmo aos 68 anos. O vídeo é um trecho do filme Yellow Submarine.

When I'm 64

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've 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 be all the true
And if you say

I could be handy
Mending a fuse,
When your lights are gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside.
Sunday morning 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.
Grandchildren on our knees
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 for ever more.
And you still need me,
you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four
