lyrics

[Shoe]
Don't have much to live for
Nothin's gonna come my way

[Soloist]
Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again, yeah

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

[Shoe]
Hmmm

[Soloist]
Well, I left my home in Georgia
Headed for that Frisco Bay
I don't have too much to love for
I know nothing's gonna come my way

Oh, I'm just gon' sit on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
I'm sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time

Well it looks 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 just remain the same

Sittin' here resting my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone,
Two thousand miles I roam
Just to make this dock my home,

Sittin on the dock of a bay
I'm watchin' the tide roll away, ooh
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wastin' time
Wastin' time

about

The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus New Haven, Connecticut

Founded in 1938, the Society of Orpheus and Bacchus is the second longest-running a cappella group in the United States, after the Yale Whiffenpoofs. Initially, the group went without a name until they capitalized on a backhanded compliment received at a party—“These SOBs are good!”— invoking the talents of Orpheus, minstrel to Olympus, and the legacy of Bacchus, god of revelry, to form the SOBs. ... more
