this is the title of the song that adam sandler sang in the wedding singer. It always make me smile. I really wish to grow old with a special someone. This song this tug my heartstrings since it speaks of love based in reality… through the humorous lyrics, it does explain love based in reality… the lyrics goes: I wanna make you smile whenever youre sad Carry you around when your arthritis is bad All I wanna do is grow old with you Ill get your medicine when your tummy aches Build you a fire if the furnace breaks Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you Ill miss you Ill kiss you Give you my coat when you are cold Ill need you Ill feed you Even let ya hold the remote control So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink Put you to bed if youve had too much to drink I could be the man who grows old with you I wanna grow old with you

That is a very good song. It fits in with my husband and I. We married when I was 20 and he was 21 and now he is 60. We have been growing old together although we do not consider ourselves old yet. It is great having someone with you most of your life and who changes with you. I think. Long may it last.

We are both from the UK but we met in Germany. I was an Au Pair and he was in the army. His base was just down the road from where I worked and there was a bowling alley across the road from there. We met in there. We only knew each other a couple of weeks before we decided to marry. We got married four months after we met and have been together 39 years.

Well, what a rip-off. (Lennon and) McCartney [b][i]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. 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[/i][/b]. So unoriginal, the wedding singer. Lash

In our China, there's a song name "The Most Romatic Thing", and the lyrics goes: the most romatic thing that I can imagine is to grow old with you slowly... it seems like music is really have no nations...

Hi. That was indeed a very good song. It expresses an unconditional love.Love is always the wonderful feeling that each of us can experience. When we love someone, we are willing to giv everything to that person though it's very difficult. But at the end, it's allworth it. That no matter what will happen they will love each other.Well I do love watching the music video especially the animated one. I really love it!

That's a cute song for a cute movie. Here's a more recent pop song to my knowledge. It's not thought-provoking but very simple and real as well... THE WAY I AM Written by Ingrid Michaelson If you were falling, then I would catch you You need a light, I'd find a match Cuz I love the way you say good morning And you take me the way I am If you are chilly, here take my sweater Your head is aching; I'll make it better Cuz I love the way you call me baby And you take me the way I am I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair Sew on patches to all you tear Cuz I love you more than I could ever promise And you take me the way I am You take me the way I am You take me the way I am

I want to grow old with someone too. I think honestly one of my fears is that I will grow old alone. I dont know why this is such a fear for me because I dont really mind being alone right now, but I guess I just want someone to be able to share memories with. Someone to validate my existence.

It's very romantic to sing this song to your love.I really appreciate people's happiness and love.And I never stop dreaming that I will meet my prince-charming one day and live a happy life forever.I want God to help me fulfill the dream.I think that this song can be the best promise to your lover,the most romantic way of showing your love and the best compliments to your lover.And I really like to read people's love stories,which give me so many imaginations and hopes that love is so wonderful.Hope every story has a happy ending.

Very nice practical lyrics. Though my hubby never does the dishes, but for everything else, he’s there for me. And we are kind of so used to each other that he’s the only person I want to grow old with.

The lyrics of that song was sure wonderful. I would like to grow old with my husband, through the good and the bad, arthritis and all.We're going to celebrate our 7th anniversary this december and I sure hope we still stick together for many years to come. We're having some tough times these days in our relationship but I know we can pass all through those things. And I sure like the way the song goes about "letting him do the dishes". Now, if my husband does that, then I will be a happy old woman.

That is such a sweet song. I have heard alot of love tunes and this holds all the same elements. It is truly sweet.

That is a sweet song. Except for the letting her hold the remote control part. My wife would have me watching cartoons for the majority of our twilight years together!
