The Lyrics

This is a tribute to Mr. Bob Carroll, soon to be retired. Need to know him to appreciate this but as you can tell, he loves guns, cars, wine, doo wop music and just happens to have just turned 64.....
When I am Sixty-Four

When I get older losing my hair,
Just like you are now.
Will I still consider you a pal of mine
Singing Doo-wop bottle of wine.

You can stay out til quarter to three
Paul won't lock the door,
Will you still need sleep, will you make kids weep,
When I'm sixty-four.

You'll be older too,
But based on what I've heard,
You'll be well preserved.

You could go driving, cruising through town
Become a CPA.
Will you still be playing with your firearms,
Shooting raccoons raising alarms,

Killing the garden, taking a smoke,
Who could ask for more.
Will you learn ballet, live in a chalet,
now that you're sixty-four.

If life's a bummer you can rent a cottage
In sunny Miami, start a doo wop group.
And if they behave
Then they can join you troop
Sharon Scott & Dave

Sign with the coast guard, have a good time,
whatever you may do
Run for President of the NRA
Charlton Heston outta my way

Send us a postcard, sing me a line,
tell us what's in store
We will still miss you, regardless if you do,
When we're sixty-four.

Beautiful. Just beautiful. It's sad and entertaining. It reminds me of that Tim Burton movie Big Fish.
