Now that McCartney is actually turning 64 on Sunday (Jun. 18), a songwriter in Los Angeles has decided to give him an answer.
Bruce Baert has just penned a birthday ballad to the Cute Beatle called Paul McCartney Is Sixty- Four that is set to the tune of When Im 64.
Some of the sample lines include: Lets send Paul a card, drop him a line/ A 42 bottle of wine/ When you wrote 64 back in the day/ Did you know your 64th was on Fathers Day?
Amazingly, Baert needed four months to write the tribute, mainly because he kept getting writers block.
It didnt help that McCartneys life has been a tabloid roller-coaster ride lately with the pending divorce from his current wife Heather Mills; Baert says he decided to rewrite parts of the song after he heard the news.
Says Baert: Its sad that they arent together and I have to admit, I thought he would be spending his 64th birthday with her.
