The Dock of the Bay
Otis Redding Lyrics


Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sittin' when the evenin' 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 in Georgia
And I headed for the Frisco Bay
'Cause I've got nothin' to live for
Looks like nothin's gonna come my way, so

I'm just come sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay, wastin' time

Looks like nothin's gonna change
Everything seems to stay the same
I can't do what ten people tell me to do
So I guess I'll remain the same

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
This two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home
Now I'm just sittin' on the dock of the bay

Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
I'm wastin' time

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sitting in the morning sun
I'll be sitting when the evening come
Watching the ships roll in
And then I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

[Chorus]
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh, I'm just sitting on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

[Verse 2]
I left my home in Georgia
Headed for the 'Frisco bay
Cause I've had nothing to live for
And look like nothing's gonna come my way

[Chorus]
So I'm just gonna sit on the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh, I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

[Bridge]
Look like nothing's 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, yes

[Verse 3]
Sitting here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home

[Chorus]
Now, I'm just gonna sit at the dock of the bay
Watching the tide roll away
Ooh-wee, sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

[Outro]
Whistling

■ "Sentado No Píer do Porto"

Sentado ao sol da manhã
Eu vou ficar sentado até que a tarde acabe
Vendo os navios chegando
Então eu vou vê-los partirem de novo
Sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...

Deixei minha casa na Georgia
Em direção à Baía de São Francisco
Não tinha nada pelo o que viver
Parece que nada vai cruzar o meu caminho

Então vou ficar sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...

Parece que nada nunca vai mudar
Tudo ainda está do mesmo jeito
Eu não posso fazer o que dez pessoas querem que eu faça
Então acho que eu vou continuar o mesmo.

Sentado aqui descansando meus ossos
Essa solidão não vai me deixar em paz..
Por 2000 milhas eu vaguei..
Apenas para fazer desse pier minha casa..

Agora vou ficar aqui sentado no pier do porto
Vendo a maré ir
Sentado no pier do porto
Deixando o tempo passar...
