[C]When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from n[G]ow,
Will you still be sending me a valentine
[(G]Birth[A]day [Bb]gree[B)]tings [C]bottle of wine?
[C]If I'd been out till quarter to three
[C7]Would you lock the [F]door,
[F]Will you still [Fm]need me, [C/G]will you still [A]feed me,
[D]When I'm [G7]sixty-[C]four?

[Am]You'll be older [E]too,
[Am](ah ah ah ah ah) [Dm]
.......And if you say the word,
[F]I could [G]stay with [C]you.[G] [(G] [B] [D] [F)]
[C]I could be handy mending a fuse
When your lights have g[G]one.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
[(G]Sun[A]day [Bb]mor[B)]nings [C]go for a ride.
[C]Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
[C7]Who could ask for [F]more?
[F]Will you still [Fm]need me, [C/G]will you still [A]feed me,
[D]When I'm [G7]sixty-[C]four?
[Am]Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of [G]Wight,
If it's not too [Am]dear
[Am]We shall scrimp and [E]save
