I want that rocking chair, it sounds great! This songs originality is refreshing. The track is humorous and sweet. The subtlety of the arrangement is wonderful and the harmonies lift the song just where it needs to be. Thank you for the story.

THIS LADY LOVES THE KIDS! AND SHE IS GOOD AT IT!

Lyrics

I saw you in the corner. Antique store lady said,
"Mighty nice chair there over by the bed."
Faded brown corduroy covered your seat.
I sat down with a smile and put up my feet. (Ahhh)

What a rockin' chair! I'm so glad you're there for me
O rocking chair. D?ya think we could be friends?
Oh, what a rocking chair! Beckon me to set a spell
so I'm gonna sit on you, O rockin' chair.

I leaned back, closed my eyes, comfort sinking through
Dreamed back to olden days when someone crafted you
Sawed your oaken boards, fitted every slat
Finally finished you, then down he sat

On his new rocking chair, (said) I'm so glad you're there for me
O rockin' chair, made in 1910
O what a rockin' chair! Beckon me to set a spell
so I'm gonna sit on you, O rockin? chair.

I didn't wait around long; bill of sale was signed.
Worth every dollar! Now you were mine.
I lifted you carefully, put you in my van
Carried you home with me to show my man...

Our new rockin' chair. I'm so glad you're there for me
O rockin' chair! Our new family friend
O what a rockin' chair! Beckon me to set a spell so
I'm gonna sit on you, O rockin' chair.

Company's comin' in. Folks are sittin' down.
Try out my rocker. It's got a homely sound.
Pretty patchwork cover, the right amount of squeak
It'd pleasure me greatly if you'd have a seat...

On my new rockin' chair. I'm so glad it's there for you
My rockin' chair. Stress levels descend
on this rockin' chair. Beckons you to set a spell so
Why don't you sit a while? Lean back and talk a while
Say, won?t you rock awhile on my rockin' chair?

One thing's missing now; Hear my next thought:
I need a little baby for me to rock.
Guess I'll wait for grandkids; it?ll be a while
But when they come along, Yes, we'll rock in style...

On my rockin' chair. I'm so glad you're there for me
O rockin' chair. Baby's cries will end
On this rockin' chair. Beckon me to set a spell
So * I'm gonna sit on you, rest a little bit on you
I'm gonna sit on you, O rockin' chair. (repeat from *), O rockin? chair, O rockin? chair!
