I don't need your rockin' chair
Your Geritol or your Medicare
Well, I still got neon in my vein
This gray hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage
You can't put this possum in a cage
My body's old but it ain't impaired
I don't need your rockin' chair

I ain't ready for the junkyard yet
'Cause I still feel like a new Corvette
It might take a little longer but I'll get there
Well, I don't need your rockin' chair

I don't need your rockin' chair
Your Geritol or your Medicare
Well, I still got neon in my vein
This gray hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage
You can't put this possum in a cage
My body is old but it ain't impaired
I don't need this rockin' chair

Retirement don't fit in my plan
You can keep your seat, I'm a gonna stand
An Eskimo needs a Frigidaire
Like I need your rockin' chair

I don't need your rockin' chair
Your Geritol or your Medicare
Well, I still got neon in my vein
This gray hair don't mean a thing

I do my rockin' on the stage
You can't put this possum in a cage
Yeah, my body's old but it ain't impaired
Well, I don't need your rockin' chair
My body's old but it ain't impaired
I don't need your rockin' chair
