“I’m go­ing with the one I’ve been in love with most re­cently. When

I’m Five is a song I got into with my daugh­ter. It was recorded in 1968 but didn’t come out till the Love You Till Tues­day sound­track [1984]. It’s a short, beau­ti­ful lit­tle piece, a very, very cool song. The lyrics re­flect David’s in­ter­est­ing take on chil­dren: ‘When I’m five I will wash my face me hands all by my­self,’ and, ‘When I’m five I will catch a but­ter­fly and eat it and I won’t be sick.’ It’s about a kid who’s four and think­ing about what he will do when he reaches his next birth­day. I re­ally, re­ally love it.”
