Wait Till We're Sixty-Five Lyrics

1965 Broadway
On a Clear Day You Can See Forever the Musical - Wait Till We're Sixty-Five Lyrics

The song is written by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner.

Guaranteed income
House with a view
Doctors and nurses
Surgery too.
Everything paid for
And it comes true...
When we're sixty-five.

Ten, twenty, thirty,
Then we're forty
Wait 'til we're sixty-five.
No need to hurry
Not a worry left
But to keep alive.
Not another premium to pay
All we got to do now is play and play.

Six years or seven
Then to heaven,
You first, the records show.
I get the pension
Not to mention
Blue Cross until I go.
If you ever thought you had fun
At twenty-one
Wait 'til we're sixty-five.

Hop, skip to forty
Jump to fifty
Wait 'til we're sixty-five.
Paid up and grinning
Just beginning
Now to become alive.

If the children never mature...

What the hell,
The bonds will
So we're secure.

Safe from disaster,
No one has to
Take care of ma and pa.

All brown and rosy
Living cozy
Down there in Tampa, Fla.
If you feel like Catherine the Great
At twenty-eight
Wait 'til we're sixty-five.


Life will be gala
Every malady all completely paid
And we've a plot a
Terra cotta
In which we'll both be laid.
If you were a little forlorn
When you were born
Wait 'til we're sixty-five!

On a Clear Day You Can See Forever the Musical Lyrics

Hurry! It's Lovely Up Here!
Tosy and Cosh
On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)
On the S.S. Bernard Cohn
Don't Tamper with My Sister
She Wasn't You
When I'm Being Born Again
What Did I Have That I Don't Have?
Wait Till We're Sixty-Five
Come Back to Me
Come Back to Me (Reprise)
