60th birthday material tends to be about the "growing old" process. If you want something different...gentler..more serious... may I suggest you look in the general birthday sections. Find the ideal one and add 60th birthday to it. Here's a bunch of©Wrinkinsults© Jon Bratton.

These are intended to be used for your contemporaries, who will likely share the humor. If you're still fresh faced use these with caution. Wrinkly wrath can be hazardous to health...and wealth!

Of all the things that you've lost, 
I bet you miss your mind the most.

60th Birthday Rhymes

Yes, you're very very old
But try to think of it as not being cursed
After all, in a hostage situation 
You'd be released first!

Being vintage like a fine wine
Should make you proud of being old
And being mature like a cheese
Certainly explains the mould!

Fester on undaunted into your 7th decade

60th Birthday Rhymes to wrinkinsult your contemporaries!! Like this, for example

Happy 60th Birthday, good buddy.
How are you dealing with your awful debility,
lessened utility and loss of mobility?

There's a strong possibility, indeed a probability 
That you'll lose your virility and your desirability.
And this liability of total sterility will lead to hostility
And a sense of futility
So, today, act with agility while you still have facility,
For you'll soon reach senility and lose the ability.
No really
There's no need to thank me.
What are friends for?

 My goodness, you're 60 already, already
Time is a thief
But still, you're only as old as your tongue
And a little bit older than your teeth
Have a wonderful birthday

Six decades on, and you’re still ticking
Not even in sight is that bucket for kicking
(You continue to give life a whirl
Have a wonderful day, Sexagenarian Birthday Girl)
(Having you around, brings so much joy
Have a wonderful day, Sexagenarian Birthday Boy)

Whoopee Do
Sexy Sexagenarian, you

Congratulations on turning 60
Now you can wear what you like 
No one cares, and more particularly
You're fine telling 'em 'Take a hike'

It's a good thing wrinkles don't start 'til you're 50ish. 
So, wrinkles, then Happy 60th, and then
Just think, you'll be 70 
In just those short years, numbering ten

60th Birthday Rhymes

On your birthday today, don't
Look up 'Life Expectancy' coz I suspect
As you've reached 60, you want to be happy, 
Trust me, you'll be depressed.

Don't be pessimistic
Because, today, the sun hasn't shone
It probably won't next year
And you'll then be 61

Jon Bratton © 2012

You won't now tell people you're in your 60's 
Indeed, you'll have to pretend, no end 
That you're close to being 70
Let me be the first to agree, old friend

You are soooo 70
Happy Birthday

Jon Bratton © 2012

You really must stop acting 
Like a 20-year-old, gold plated
In a midlife crisis 
You just graduated

Happy 60th

60th Birthday Rhymes

Here's 6 poems that could be used for 40, 50 or 60

Now that you're 60,
You'll develop a leaning
Towards looking forward
To a delightfully dull evening

Now that you're 60,
You'll find this to be true
Your back will go out
More than you do.

Now you're 60 that gleam in your eyes
Won't be from a bout of sex
But more likely the sun hitting
Your bi-focal specs.

Now that you're 60
Here's the chore
You know all the answers, but..
No-one asks you, anymore.

Now that you're 60
It's a bit of a caper
Your arms are too short
To read the newspaper.

Now that you're 60
I expect you're like me
You can't remember when last you laid
On the floor, to watch TV.

Don't think of 60 as ten years older than 50. 
Think of it as only 1 year older than 59
Go ahead, as it's your birthday
Delusion, today, is just fine

It's a good employ

Jon Bratton © 2012

If I may be so bold
Only 40 years to go 
Before you're a century old
Just saying

60th Birthday Rhymes

These are little witty remarks you can use for a 60th birthday speech or toast. Feel free to edit these to make them work more smoothly and fit your 60-year-old friend.

If time speeds up as you get older, you're going at least 60 miles per hour!

Goodbye full price. Hello senior citizen discounts!

60 is really only 40 in metric time.

Age is just a number, and yours just starts with a 6 now!

At 60, you have the combined wisdom of 6 10-year-olds, the intelligence of 3 20-year-olds, the wit of 2 30-year-olds, and the memory of 60 1-year-olds.

A man in his 50s brags about his net worth. A man in his 60s brags about the fish in his net.

At 60 you shouldn't stay in the bath or shower too long. The wrinkles might stay.

Time is on your side when you're young
When you hit sixty, time is on your belly
You haven't climbed to the highest rung
But your legs may still feel like jelly

But great things still await for a 60 year old
There's plenty more things for you to do
Move forward with an attitude that's bold

On your 60th, here's something philosophical
To give the old grey matter a stir
How old would you be
If you didn't know how old you were?

You're 60
But honestly it doesn't show
Mind you, you reached the age of consent
About 50,000 consents ago!!

True Friends are the bacon bits 
In the salad bowl of life. How true
I read that and straight away,
My thoughts turned to you
And especially today on your 60th
These special wishes I send
Have a really wonderful birthday
My special "bacon flavored" friend

60th Birthday Rhymes

At 60 you've seen it all
And undoubtedly done it all.
The trouble is, most of it
You simply can't recall

Consider this on your birthday
You've got life's struggle beaten
For 60 years you've ate
And avoided being eaten

60th Birthday Rhymes

For 60 you often still look young 
Not quite so, in other cases
You're definitely still very young at heart 
But verrry old in a few odd places

© V4C

You’re always very special
And, on your 60th, you should know today
That you are wished the nicest things
That life can bring your way
Like warm and loving wishes
And happiness and cheer
And everything you need to start
Another happy year! 
(And 7th Decade! Go for it girl/boy!!)

80th, 70th or 60th Birthday Rhymes are usually about the ageing process

There's quite an art to falling apart
As the years go by,
And life doesn't begin at 40.
We both know that's a lie.

Our hair's getting thinner,
But our waists are not
The few teeth we have
Are beginning to rot.

We smell of Vick's Vapourub,
Not Chanel Number 5
Our doggedness is the only thing
That's keeping us alive.

When asked of our past,
Every detail we'll know,
Except what we were doing
Just 10 minutes ago?

Well, you get the idea,
What more can I say?
Why not read the obituaries
Like you do every day

If your name's not there,
You'll once again start
Perfecting the art
Of falling apart

Not yet had enough?
Here's more 60th birthday rhymes & stuff

I'm able to say this
As an old friend, to you
A very, very old friend
Who's falling apart too

Despite only having half a heart left
These birthday wishes I send
Not at all half heartedly
All the very best, my dear old friend

A little bit of magic I'm sending you today
For wishes that your 60th is superb in every way
You are a lovely person who I'm proud to know
You've got another 40 years to glow, flow and grow

To stay young, you should remember the past
That, they say, is the trick
But when very few brain cells remain
It's hard to get nostalgic
But a good thing about Alzheimers
I've heard people say
Is at least you get to meet
Brand new people every day

I know you're holding on to youth
As very best you can
But when did your wild oats 
Turn to prune juice and all-bran?

60th Birthday Rhymes

When young, you were fit but muddled
But now, as a 60 year old fart
You've, at last, got your head together, 
But your body's falling apart.

Happy 60th
Party with as much gusto
As you can musto

© V4C

Because today, your 60th, is so special
It really wouldn't do,
To send one simple birthday wish
To last the whole year through
So this wishes happy moments,
A day when dreams come true,
And a year that's filled with all the things
That mean the most to you.

Happy 60th Birthday, dear (Audrey)
Party Hearty

For your amusement on your 60th
Here's a little Alan Bennett ditty

Here I sit, alone at 60,
Bald and fat and full of sin
Cold the seat, and loud the cistern
As I read the (Harpic) (Lysol) tin

© V4C

On your Sixtieth birthday
May you have fabulous fun;
Truthfully I’d like to say
You look like you’re 21
...err 51

That you won’t exceed your century
There’s no reason nor rhyme
As you're still full of love and life
Indeed, fast approaching your prime
Have a great day!

Maggie-May 2011

You would have thought by now
Six decades down the line;
Your insides would be pickled
With all that beer, shorts and wine

So come on down and let's have a day
When you show me what you can do;
It'll be on the house, I'll settle the bill
A very happy 60th Birthday to you!

Maggie-May 2011
