The Dock of the Bay
by Otis Redding

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

I signed the contract with the Navy recruiter while in the student center at college. After we shook hands and I walked away and sat down at a table alone. Now, I have to go home and tell my parents what I have done. This song came on the jukebox. It was

@Federico Ariano Exactly. Don't know why no one seems to care about that or that almost everyone in our society likes to be such a soldier buttkisser. Sure they were needed to defeat Hitler, but they haven't done much good since then.

Thank you and other millions soldiers for having killed many innocents in a useless war , great choice

@Wes 76 Leftist and proud since it seems we are the only ones WITH logic. For example, you needed it to be explained to you that there is no such thing as an 'unborn child' since it only becomes a child when it's born.
And sometimes I almost regret abortion is legal simply because it means fewer people will grow up in despair and murder our filthy rich republican oppressors. Almost, because if I actually went there I'd be thinking like a republican.
