  • Grow old along with me
    The best is yet to be
    When our time has come
    We will be as one
    God bless our love
    God bless our love

    Grow old along with me
    Two branches of one tree
    Face the setting sun
    When the day is done
    God bless our love
    God bless our love

    Spending our lives together
    Man and wife together
    World without end
    World without end

    Grow old along with me
    Whatever fate decrees
    We will see it through
    For our love is true
    God bless our love
    God bless our love Writer/s: John Lennon

  • Stan from New Haven, ConnecticutI've loved John and The Beatles since 1963. Ever since my sister invited me into her room to listen to something different. An album called "Meet The Beatles." I'm still mourning the senseless murder of John. I still say, why? why a peace loving man. A Father, Husband, and friend. The Monster who took him from us should never, ever be acknowledged! And when he dies, he's not allowed to be with his loved ones, for a thousand years! I just listened to "Annie Moses" band performing "Grow Old with Me" It will bring you to tears! She did a great job with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BA3frCMWi7k
  • Paula from Laredo, TxI think that the best punishment for the creep who killed John would be for humanity never to utter or write his name in connection to John. Erase him from history! John is still here with us through his music. The actions of one man can't take that away. EVER!
  • Brad from Lexington, Ky This song makes me extremely sad every time I hear it. The poor guy sings "the best is yet to come" and "grow old with me", when his life would be over in just a few weeks. He never got a chance to grow old. That's the bitter irony of this song, as well as another one he wrote called "Life Begins At 40", when he had no idea that his life would actually end. So sad. I hope the monster of a man that killed him never gets out of prison.
  • Bmn from Hisuan, ArgentinaRegarding the hum, it wasn't on "grow old with me" but on "now and then" which has very sparse lyrics and a noisy buzz also (there's a demo floating on the net). Now and then should have been the third reworked demo, while grow old with me was maybe offered at first but declined by the threetles (who preferred a really unreleased song which was Free As A Bird).
  • Ian from Lethbridge, CanadaIt is George, but it's comforting to know that the final moments of John Lennon's life were in comfort and peace. He had some very hard times in his life, and I'm happy for John that this wasn't one of them. R.I.P. dude.
  • George from Calumet City, IlBoth a very beautiful and very sad song at the same time.
