(Chorus:)
I don't need your rockin' chair
Your Geritol or your Medicare
Well I still got Neon in my veins
This grey 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
Well 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

(Repeat chorus)

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

(Repeat chorus)

My body's old but it ain't impaired
Well I don't need your rockin' chair

I Don't Need Your Rockin' Chair | Reviewer: ML Doc Gibbs | 5/1/13

Nobody could wrap his heart around a song like George Jones. This song and the YouTube live video of his performance are a fun, foot-stompin' feast of down home Jones -- country music's patriarch of plain-spoken, authentic singing. Jones sings about getting older, but not forsaking what he loves to do: sing and perform country songs. He even dances a jig a couple of times, singing, "I do my rockin from the stage", as the crowd goes wild. No Geritol, no Medicare, no rockin' chair, Old Possum's going to keep on singing till the day he died. And he did.
