"Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" as written by Steve Cropper and Otis Redding....
Sittin' in the morning sun
Sittin' I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I watch 'em roll away again

I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

I left my home down in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco Bay
I've had nothing to live for
Looks like nothing's gonna come my way

I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Looks like nothing's ever change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what them people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same
Sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Yes two thousand miles I roamed
Just too make this dock my home

Now I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Yes I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
