Otis Reddings' Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay

Otis Redding's "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay"

A Paddy Whack©
Giving to Barack all my Pay

Giving in the morning sun
I'll be giving when the evening comes
Watching the chips roll in
And then watch 'em roll away again

[Refrain]
Giving to Barack all my Pay
Watching his lies every day
I'm just giving to Barack all my Pay
Wasting dimes.

I lost my home in Georgia
Can't afford the 'Frisco Bay
'Cause I got nothin' to live on
Look like freedom's gonna pass away

So I'm just...
Giving to Barack all my Pay
Watch as he lies every day
I'm just giving to Barack all my Pay
Wasting dimes

Look like nothing's gonna save me
Everyone still embraces change
Why we do what bad people tell us to do?
Can't we tell 'em to keep the change?

Listen here lessons have shown
That His Holiness won't leave us alone
Two Thousand years and some
Just to make Barack the One?

Now, I'm just
Giving to Barack all my Pay
Watching his lies every day
I'm just giving to Barack all my Pay
Wasting dimes
