"(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" as written by Stephen Lee Cropper and Otis Redding....
Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watchin' the ships roll in
Then I'll watch 'em roll away again yea

I'm sittin' on the dock of a bay
Watching the tide roll away oh
I'm just sittin' on a dock of a bay
Wastin' time

I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the Frisco bay
Cause I have nuthin' to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come my way

So, I'm just gonna sit on a dock of a bay
Watching the tide roll away, oh
I'm sittin' on a dock of a bay
Wastin' time

Look like nothings gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can't do what ten 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, listen
Two thousand miles I Rome
Just to make this dock my home

Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of a bay
Watching the tide roll away oh
I'm sittin' on a dock of a bay
Wastin' time
