When I'm Sixty-Four   (Seven C's 228)   Glenn Wilson
OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*When I get older, losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greeting,
... 4 ladies chain
Turn with that girl, chain her back home
Keep her and then promenade
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The heads pass the ocean, recycle and then
Pass thru, spin chain thru
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Boys run right, ferris wheel too
Everyone zoom, centers pass thru
Swing and promenade the floor
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


FIGURE   

The heads promenade halfway you know
Walk in and square thru four hands you go
All the way and then a right & left thru
Spin chain thru
Girls do a U-turn back, circulate just once
Boys put an arm around, keep her and promenade the floor
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm
...Sides face, grand square


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*I could be handy, mendin' a fuse
When your lights are gone
You could knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday morning
...4 ladies chain
Turn with that girl, chain her back home
Keep her and then promenade
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

The sides pass the ocean, ladies trade, recycle
Pass thru, swing thru and then
Spin chain thru
Boys circulate just one time you know
Recycle and then, pass thru, trade by
Swing and promenade the floor
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Sides flutter wheel and then back away
Heads touch 1/4 and those boys run right
Everybody touch 1/4, centers you trade
Spin chain thru and when you're done
All 8 circulate, swing and promenade the floor
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain, why you turn 'em
Chain the ladies right on home
You join up hands, circle to the left I sing
Left allemande, then weave that old ring
**If I'd been out 'til quarter to 3
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four


TAG

Swing her
When I'm sixty-four


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*Send me a postcard drop me a line, stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say, yours sincerely


**Give me your answer; fill in a form
(Swing and promenade the floor)
(Mine forever more)
Will you still need me, will you still feed me
When I'm sixty-four
