In the summer of 1970 I was ninteen years old and was part of a dixie band at "Man and his world" in Montreal, Canada. We made an arrangement of this song and I was the one who sang it. Now I will be turning 64 on november the 12th! Went by so fast!
I'll be turning 64 on the 9th November. 'When I'm 64' came into my head a few weeks ago and have sung it every day since. I'm proud to be turning 64 and still feel young at heart. Thanks to Paul for a wonderful song...I will sing it proudly on my Birthday Haha.
Today is my husbands mum's 64th birthday! She told us she jumped out of bed, sang this song to herself and has spent the rest of the day at work! Singing these lyrics lol. When I'm celebrating my 64th I want to be just like her... young at heart, vibrant, fit, kind, loving, a wonderful nanna and best mum in the world and I'll be singing this song to myself too. We're visiting tomorrow with fruit cake, homemade cards containing these lyrics and of course... a bottle of wine hmmmm.
I knew it was approaching when Paul McCartney was 64. Today my turn. Time is is such a strange concept, but so real... All and nothing. 17 or 64 I am here and this is the single thing it is for sure.
Well, it's happened if I see the light of day tomorrow, August 9 2014 is WHEN I'm 64,,
Never thought I would be here can't believe I'm that old
Got married in 73 and still have the same wife and got a good life who could ask for more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me when I'm 64
We will find out tomorrow stay tuned
As a person of 1950 vintage, I wondered, when Sgt Pepper first appeared, what it would be like to be 64. So old! If I even lived that long!
Well, I have one day left before I'm 64. Now I know what it's like.
It's healthiness, contentment and happiness. It will be wife and children singing this song to me on my birthday, answering the questions the song asks, bringing "birthday greetings" and a "bottle of wine" to the old guy.
This has been my husband and my "theme song" since we got married in 1971. We said that we would stay married until we were 64, then, at that time, we would have the option to decide whether or not to stay married! Well, he's now got 6 days left to decide! .....but then, it'll be my turn :^) No matter, it's been a great, terrific 43 and 1/2 years! What an adventure!!!! We'd do it all over again!!!!!!
absolutely perfect, the lyrics of the song fits exactly for those folks celebrating their 64th birthday, the lyrics remind the nostalgic events in one's life the past, present and future developments of growing up - older,
in course of its journey sailing forward toward happy life and graceful exist to a better world...vtljr.
I am wondering if any one has an idea how to put these words into a play for my Dad. He will be 64 on june30, and he loves the Beatles so I am trying to come up with somhinng to do for these words, he will get a kick out of it. Please feel free to give me any ideas.. you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I'm 64 today and I was searching for lyrics to translate them (on Serbian)to my wife. Sgt. Pepper was first Beatles LP to be published in Yugoslavia, in 1967, and I had to buy another disc few years latter (first being worned).Beatles for ever!
I echo the sentiments of the previous contributors. We grew up in a world where "new ground was being broken" and the music had a major impact on this change. It was also a time of great hope and anticipation that "we can make it better". The reality has been somewhat sobering but the music still brings back memories of a time filled with hope and anticipation that a better future was realizable. Long live the spirit of the Sgt. Peppers generation!
Wow...and so great to have this song to celebrate! A milestone and an achievement to have arrived healthy and happy. Lots of life lived and enjoyed. Thank you Paul for this song!
Wow aren't we the lucky ones 64 going on 44 | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/3/14
I can't believe I am here...wealthy, healthy and wise at 64 and loving it. So very grateful all the years of hardship, impecunity, long working hours and the driving for my professional job are all over. I survived...that's another song! These are the best years of my life, no one cares about me, so I do not have to care about anyone else, so I do what I want with whom I want and where I want, without any censure, envy nor criticism received nor indeed given....fantastic, thank you god and mammon for my happiness, at last achieved, albeit temporary, until my bubble bursts with the inevitable decline into dependency, however, I will pay for this with a demand for the best, I deserve it! And I do not knit.
