The Lyrics

No, not the remaining space shuttles. This is an even older Rocket. And I don't mean the late, great hockey player Maurice Richard, who had the good sense to retire at age 38.
(instrumental opening)

JFK President when he was born.
Pitched for Texas, them Longhorns.
Still gets up every morn.
Rocket Medicare.

He pitched for Sox in eight-six.
Showed his splitter's nasty tricks.
Team ended up in a fix.
Rocket Medicare.

I'm so tired of paying money.
He's got nothing left to give.
He's eligible for Medicare.

Everybody's
got a body
that's painful.
Puts his body
through a workout
disdainful!

Got dumped by Sox after highlights.
Said his career was in twilight.
Maybe now, at last, they're right.
Rocket Medicare.

(instrumental break)

He pitched great for Toronto's Jays.
Came to Yanks for winning ways.
Now he's seen much better days.
Rocket Medicare.

I'm so tired of paying money.
He's got nothing left to give.
He's eligible for Medicare.

Everybody's
got a body
that's painful.
Puts his body
through a workout
disdainful!

So, Roger, ham, play out the string.
Or else I'll just go on and sing
this song I'm parodying.
Rocket Medicare!

(instrumental close)
