Will you still need me, will you still feed me

I still remember hearing this song for the first time and thinking what an incredibly long way away it seemed.

Soon it will be only 13 years – about as long as I’ve lived in Hamburg.

Or does a really cold winter just make you feel old?

    It’s the cold. Lovely to hear that song again from so long ago. It was a part of my childhood. Wonder if our children can possibly hear it in the same way.

    I turned 64 last October and giggled my way through the song a couple of times. I was amazed to discover I could remember most of the lyrics. The only ones I’d scrap are “Yours sincerely, wasting away”. It’s a little soon for that😉

    Really enjoyed this – way to go, LRHG. A chemistry research group I was a part of many years ago performed a version of this for our professor. Will check if someone still has the original lyrics but highlights as I recall included: We can somethingsomething by the fireside; Raman, IR, PEAKS so wide… Will you still need me, will you PhD me, when I’m 64? (We’re HALFway thERRRRRRE….)
