​If You Can Beat Me Rockin' (You Can Have My Chair)

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Live And Learn (1979).

I don't sit and worry where my man spends his time
I close my ears to gossip about that man of mine
Now the clean-up woman she may be a threat
But I ain't met no woman that could take my place yet

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

I'd be glad to get on up
If my love ain't good enough
Maybe you can love him better
Then y'all belong together

He may be different, that they all may do
But I ain't worried about losing him to you
'Cause I'm doing my job seven days a week
And I don't fear no woman takin' my seat

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

I've been so close to him
Just like my brother
He don't hear more tenderness
Than he gets from his own mother

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

Beat me
Beat me
Beat me
Beat me

(Get up) I've been so close to him
(Get up)? brother
(Get up) He don't hear more tenderness
(Get up) Than he gets from his own mother

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

If you can beat me rockin';
You can have my rockin' chair

If you can beat me
Beat me
Beat me
Beat me
Beat me
Beat me
