Well, I already declared it, this is one of my favourite songs, also from my favourite movie, The Wedding Singer (a 1998 movie set in 1985). When I decided this should be the first song I post in 2015 I had to make sure I included Billy Idol’s introduction from the flight scene. It just wouldn’t be the same without it. So I watched the movie scene a few times to get the wording right. Full text below.
Grow Old with You from The Wedding Singer by Adam
INTRO: Billy Idol (Speaking):
Good afternoon everyone.
We’re flying at twenty-six thousand feet, moving up to thirty thousand feet,
and then we’ve got clear skies all the way to Las Vegas.
And right now, we’re bringing you some in-flight entertainment.
One of our First-class passengers would like to sing you a song
inspired by one of our coach passengers.
And since we let our First-class passengers do pretty much whatever they want, here he is.
I wanna [A] make you smile, when-[Bm]ever you’re sad
[C#m] Carry you around when your ar-[D]thritis is bad
[A] All I wanna do, is [E] Grow [D] Old with [A] You [A]
[A] I’ll get your medicine, when your [Bm] tummy aches
[C#m] Build you a fire if the [D]furnace breaks
[A] Oh it could be so nice, [E] growing [D] old with [A] you [A7]
[D] I’ll miss you, kiss you, [A] give you my coat when you are cold
[D] Need you, feed you, [A] I’ll even let you hold the [E] remote control [D]
[A] So let me do the dishes in our [Bm] kitchen sink
[C#m] Put you to bed when you’ve had too [D]much to drink
[A] Oh I could be the man, who [E] grows [D] old with [A] you [A]
[E] I wanna Grow [D] Old with [A] You
