When I'm Eleventy-Four

1. When I'm Eleventy-Four

When I get older, my feet losing their hair
Many years from now.
Will you still be making me a nice rib roast,
Mushroom casserole, cheddar on toast?
If I’ve stayed too long at the pub in Bree
Will you bar the door?
Will you still have me?
Will you still love me?
When I’m eleventy-four?

You’ll be old then too…..
And if you’d just say the word,
I would stay by you.

I’ll be always handy, tending our smial,
When the snows have gone.
I’ll tie up your roses and your runner beans
While you sit calmly tending my seams.
We’ll stroll in our garden your hand in my hand.
How could we ask for more?
Will you still have me?
Will you still love me?
When I’m eleventy-four?

We’ll have a lot of children at our tableside
All our babies, dear.
We’ll watch them grow up right
Without doubt or fear.

Post me a letter; answer me please!
Tell me yea or nay!
Gossip all about me over the back fence,
Call your friends in for tea and a conference!
Answer me, darling, please send me a sign!
Be mine forever more!
Will you still have me?
Will you still love me?
When I’m eleventy-four? (whew…..)
