You’re Seventy, You’re Beautiful, and You’re Mine!

In 1960, Johnny Burnette recorded the song “You’re Sixteen, You’re Beautiful, and You’re Mine.”  It reached #8 on the Pop charts.  For those of you who may not have lived in a couple different centuries and a couple different milliniums, here is the original song by Johnny Burnette for your listening pleasure.

In 1974, Ringo Starr recorded the same song.  It made it all the way to #1, possibly because former bandmate Paul McCartney played a kazoo solo during the recording.

Nothing like a kazoo to add a little pizzazz!

In 2021, I rewrote the lyrics of the song as a tribute to my wife on her 70th Birthday.

Here goes:

You come on like a dream on Titanium knees

And hand me my list of chores

You’re 70, you’re beautiful, and your mine!

You’re all hormones and pills, ooh, what a thrill

Eyes that sparkle when I whine

You’re 70, Your beautiful, and you’re mine!

We’ve got three beautiful grandkids, one dog for our pet

And medicare for all the diseases we ain’t had yet!

You’re by my side until my heart goes pop

You sleep with a machine so your breathing won’t stop

You’re 70, You’re beautiful, and you’re mine!

(kazoo solo here)

You walked out of my dreams when we first dated

Before I knew what hit me I was domesticated!

You’re 70, You’re beautiful, and you’re mine (mine, mine, mine, all mine!)

You were only 21 when you became my mate

We’re gonna be together til one of of our names is preceded by “the late”

You’re 70, your beautiful, and you’re mine!

(Kazoo crescendo!!)

One of the greatest events of the year 1951 was what became known as “The Great Flood of 1951″ in the Midwest.  Little did I realize that a baby girl born on June 4, 1951, in Hot Springs, Arkansas with the last name “Flood” made 1951 the year of TWO great floods for me.

Happy Birthday to my beautiful, patient, thoughtful wife!!

49 years later here we are getting our picture taken in the actual vehicle driven by Jethro Clampet in The Beverly Hillbillies. We never dreamed we could be this lucky! And she is still smiling!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
