One day more
Another day, another destiny
Happy 64-th Birthday, Sir Paul McCartney!
Вчера сэру Полу МакКартни таки стукнуло 64. Долгих лет!

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 me,
When I'm sixty-four?

You'll be older too,
And if you say the word,
I could stay with you.
I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You 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?
Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear –
We shall scrimp and save.
Grandchildren on your knee –
Vera, Chuck & 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 evermore.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four?

© 1958 Paul McCartney

Ну вот не верится мне что она (с) 1958. Хотя уже не впервый раз вижу...

И еще подумалось что бедный Пол на свои 64 оказался в полном пролете. Кто ему будет делать все перечисленное? Ринго?

Хорошо, убедил.

"In order to make Paul sound younger, the recording was slowed down for the final master." - hmmmm? Это как?

Стыдно признаться, я за 10 лет битломании впервые про такой день забыла. Эх, надо было забить на все дела и отправиться дарить цветы незнакомым на улицах, как раньше.
Ладно, для цветов другой повод придумаем :)
