"Grow Old With You" was co written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy for The Wedding Singer movie in which Adam Sandler plays the part of Robbie Hart - a wedding singer who gets jilted and stood up at his own wedding by his long term girlfriend, Linda. The original idea and inspiration for the film's storyline also came from Adam Sandler, whilst it was the The Wedding Singer's writer - Tim Herlihy's who wanting the film to be set in the 1980's so that they could draw upon the musical influences and fashion of the 80's era. In 2006, a stage musical adaptation of the movie - also entitled, "The Wedding Singing" - featured on Broadway and closed the same year after 284 performances.

'Grow Old With You', makes an appearance at the end of "The Wedding Singer," where Robbie finds himself on a first class flight to Vegas in an attempt to find and stop Julia (Drew Barrymore) from marrying Glenn - who has been frequently cheating on Julia behind her back. Upon learning that Julia and Glenn are in coach class on the same flight, Robbie enlists the help and assistance of fellow first class passenger and 80's musician, Billie Idol, along with the rest of the flight crew and sings "Grow Old With You" over the flight's announcement sound system.

Here is the scene from the Wedding Singer which features the original song, 'Grown Old With You,' as performed by Adam Sandler.

Lyrics to 'Grow Old With You' - The Wedding Singer

[Billy Idol (Speaking):]
Good afternoon everyone. We're flying at 26, 000 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.

[Robbie Hart (Singing):]
I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh all I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll 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

I'll miss you, kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you, Feed you
I'll let you hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you
