Born and bred in Liverpool | Reviewer: Derrick | 1/24/14

I first heard this when I was 17, growing up in Liverpool. I did wonder what 64 would be like, finally made it today and life is great. Never saw the Beatles, but saw Paul M live several times, including 3 nights at the Liverpool Empire 1976.... What a simply brilliant songwriter.

looking forward to singing this | Reviewer: joyce | 1/3/14

Can't wait to sing this on 1/6/14. Have always loved the cleverness of the song and so happy to be one of those who is making the magical year, especially when I think of so many friends and lovers who didn't make it.

For the missus... | Reviewer: Ikenuma | 1/5/14

My wife will be 64 on 15th January 2014... I came here searching for the lyrics to "When I'm 64" to give to all the people who come to her small "When I'm 64 dinner party" so every one can sing along when I play it...

It was also the first song we played at our Wedding over 30 years ago... it seemed quite relevant at the time.


I turn 64 on 1st Jan 2014.
the song always amused me.
Who could imagine achieving 64 at age 14.
As part of my own home repertoire, Sixty Four is a little song i will play on my birthday.
of course, i will modify the words to suit.

You said you want a revolution | Reviewer: John | 12/12/13

My friend just sent me an email reminding me of this song (We both turned 64 on Dec 09th). The Beatles had a huge influence on my teenage life. They truly were an engine of a social revolution. It felt special to be a teenager in those days! I remember being extremely upset when my namesake (John) was shot, 'never more would the group be 4'. BUT, gotta end on a high note cus they gave me, my friends and my generation hours and hours of magnificent entertainment (sometimes I was even straight). God bless the Beatles! And 64 is such a cool number 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 = 64, 4 X 4 X 4 = 64, 8 X 8 = 64, 16 x 4 = 64, 32 X 2 = 64, 64 X 1 = 64 (I'll leave the fractions for someone else):)

still the same | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/11/13

friends had this played this as they came out of the church at their wedding. They are now 64 plus and still happily husband and wife. Wow, marriages can last. A song for its time

Rod is 64 | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/13

We have always loved the Beatles. My husband turned 64 yesterday and I found out today from a young colleague at school where I teach that Paul wrote this, his very first song at age 14! Wow!

Past 64 | Reviewer: Jim Schwindt | 12/17/13

I was in my twenties when Sgt. Peppers came out. At that time, I couldn't foresee my ever living that long. I was living a hard working, hard playing lifestyle at that time.
Now, I've eclipsed 64 by 9 nears and it "great" grandchildren on my knee. ;o)

Never thought it would happen! | Reviewer: Mary Ellen | 12/10/13

Like one of the previous reviewers, I saw the Beatles live in Toronto when I was 14. When this song was popular I thought it would not be possible, never mind desirable to live that long! I just turned 64 last Thursday, funny thing, life....

I'm there! Will you still need me? | Reviewer: John | 12/4/13

December 5. That wonderful song comes true for me. I looked up the lyrics so I could send out an email to my family and friends - and - grandchildren on my knee. Thanks John, Paul George and Ringo. You made those teenage years better than the Isle of Wight.

unlikely "age of 64" | Reviewer: Silvio | 12/3/13

Only a genius like Paul Mc Cartney could make the unlikely “age of 64” become a hit so incredible (and unique) like this… wich crossed the decades and took roots in our hearts since ever. Like someone said (above) “its great to be able to achieve 64” (I’m doing 64 this December, 4th, 2013), and I’ll never stop loving all the great songs of the most important band ever: The Beatles. I’m Brazilian (speak Portuguese), and I do not speak English very well. Hope all of you could understand… I’m now 64… Cheers Paul and Ringo; cheers John and George wherever you are now. PS = I think when Paul wrote this song he could never imagine us “droppin’ some lines” in the internet as we do today…

Who will need us and who will feed us when we age beyond 64? | Reviewer: Hermie | 12/2/13

I am still 8 years away from the golden age of 64. I keep myself busy on a daily basis with with the questions above. My parents would have been in their 80's today have they not passed on a few years ago. I did not need them and definitely fed them at 64. Someone else did or they did it themselves. My brother is that age now, retired and looking after himself and his wife. No children around. So what's up with the questions and keeping myself occupied with the issue of growing older? I am currently working in the age care business. I see a lot of older folks with no care and support other than a caregiver (sometimes with little care at all). And I am wondering: "Can we do more to fill their need and hunger, even beyond 64...

Now I'm turning 64 yers old. . . . | Reviewer: | 11/5/13

I just thought that this song will be the best to post in the social media now that I am turning 64 so that others may know. .
but kidding aside this song really is one of my favorite since I was 34 years old. . . .

Great Song - One of Paul's first | Reviewer: Danny | 10/26/13

Paul wrote this when he was 15 year old at his home 20 Forthlin Rd Liverpool. (Great sightseeing place to visit, the National Trust gives tours of his home and John's home, Highly recommended.) the Beatles played this in Hamburg when Paul's guitar would break, which was often. They, of course, finally recorded it for Sgt. pepper, as everyone knows.... I came here because I am doing a guitar instrumental version of it, and I couldn't remember the words to the "Ever Summer we could rent a a cottage" bit.... great reading everyones stories, I'm not there yet (48), but soon enough...

Forever a Beatles fan ! | Reviewer: Chrissy | 10/21/13

I saw the Beatles perform the first time they came to Philly in the summer of 1964...I was 13 years old and it was at Convention Hall which no longer exists ...I screamed so loud and so long that I had no voice for a week ... ! I love all of their songs and since I will be turning 64 in November .... this lovely song will be played at my birthday party .....God bless John, Paul, George and Ringo !
