G Eazy When I’m Sixty Four (cover)

Though not every rapper can attest to having more slaps than The Beatles, there’s nothing stopping rappers from laying down the finest attempt at a Beatles cover they can muster. That’s exactly what G-Eazy opted to do in honour of his mother’s birthday, taking to SoundCloud with a cover of the heartfelt ditty penned by Paul McCartney back in 1966. In keeping with the original’s arrangement, Gerald trades in his usual approach in favor of an honest attempt at singing; though not exactly frequently tread ground for him, it’s all the more endearing because of it. If that wasn’t enough, his brother James is on board to ably hold down the trumpet section.

For those unfamiliar with The Beatles and their legendary catalog, “When I’m Sixty-Four” was one of the first songs ever written by Paul McCartney, who penned the lyrics when he was only sixteen. The song was eventually released on their classic album Seargant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and its simplistic lyrics and sweet sentiment have clearly resonated decades down the line. It’s likely that G-Eazy’s mother holds the song dear, so hearing him come through with a birthday cover is a good look for the Bay Area rascal. Even if Sir Paul’s shoes aren’t exactly easy to fill.

G-Eazy – When I’m Sixty-Four (Cover)


[Verse 1]
When I get older
Losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a Valentine?
Birthday greetings bottle of wine?

[Verse 2]
If I’d been out
Till quarter to three
Would you lock the door?
Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

[Verse 3]
You’ll be older too
And if you say the word
I could stay with you

[Verse 4]
I could be handy
Mending a fuse
When your lights have gone
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride

[Verse 5]
Doing the garden
Digging the weeds
Who could ask for more?
Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?

[Verse 6]
Every summer we can rent a cottage
In the Isle of Wight if it’s not too dear
We shall scrimp and save (we shall scrimp and save)
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera, Chuck, and Dave

[Verse 7]
Send me a postcard
Drop me a line
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely wasting away

[Verse 8]
Give me your answer
Fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me
Will you still feed me
When I’m sixty-four?
