SQL 2000 - Concatenate String on Set Command

I'm trying to concatenate two stings together on the set command, but instead of concatenating it is adding the two strings together.

@ProcessDate = '4/2/2012'

declare @YearMonth varchar(6)
set @YearMonth = Year(@ProcessDate) + REPLICATE('0',LEN(Month(@ProcessDate))) + CONVERT(varchar(2),Month(@ProcessDate))

Instead of getting 201204 - Which is what I want I'm getting 2016

Thanks,
Mark
