"Will you still need me, will you still feed me?"

Yesterday I turned 64 (and my partner turned 44), so some of my relatives took us out to lunch. My cousin’s daughter, who is in her 20s, asked me how old I am now. So I started singing “Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I’m . . .”

She didn’t get it.

Thanks a lot for making me feel even more ancient than I already am.

Happy birthday! I’m in between you and your partner in age and I happen to love that Beatles song :smiley:

You are NOT, however, ancient.

Well, at least it wasn’t a hit before her mother was born. Probably.

I know that song. Wasn’t that the band Paul McCartney was in before Wings?

I shall present you with a damp rag and an empty jar!

Something to look forward to in 18 mos.

Pfft. That shows your age too - the 20-something wouldn’t have heard of Wings. :smiley:

Dating someone 20 years your junior?

Not ancient.


Turned 64 :gasp:

Coleridge may have written a rime about it, methinks

(hint: it wasn’t Kubla Khan)

We’re not exactly dating; we’ve been together almost 22 years. And he knows all the Beatles’ songs.

Have to post this: When I’m 25 or 64. Think Chicago, think The Beatles, and I’m sure you can see where this is going. It’s a really fun mashup, IMO.

EDIT: I guess if you really love either of those songs, this desecration could send you into slobbering rage :slight_smile:

Darn! He didn’t rob the cradle, he mugged the stork!

Just kidding. Happy birthday!
