He wrote and sang When I'm 64 . . . and today Sir Paul McCartney, the former Beatle, celebrates his 64th birthday.

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 'til 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, and 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 forever more
Will you still need me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty-four?

Happy birthday, Sir Paul.

I've been in the Star Club, Hamburg, in the 1960s too, but the Beatles were not on that week.

(It was ""Die Big 6" aus Glasgow", as I recall)

"Maxwell's Silver Hammer"

What's that all about, then? Shocked

Maybe you smoked a bit too much of the wacky baccy that day, Sir P, eh?

Steve Turner noted in A Hard Day's Write, his volume on the origins of Beatles songs:
    "John told me that 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' was about the law of karma," says former Apple employee Tony King. "We were talking one day about 'Instant Karma' because something happened where he'd been clobbered and he'd said that this was an example of instant karma. I asked him whether he believed in that theory. He said that he did and that 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' was the first song that they'd made about that. He said that the idea behind the song was that the minute you do something that's not right, Maxwell's silver hammer will come down on your head."

I think we should start a global "Send Paul a Valentine" this February!

I still love all the Beatles. Paulie makes it to 64 just months before I do.

I have a really sick Sir Paul joke....

(close your eyes now)


Sir Paul was asked in an interview whether he would be reticent about getting married again given his recent separation.

Reporter: I guess you won't be going down on one knee any time soon?

Sir Paul: I would prefer you called her 'Heather'.
