Sittin' in the morning sun
I'll be sittin' when the evening comes
Watchin' the ships roll in
And I watch 'em roll away again

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time

I left my home back in Fiji
Headin' for the Turtle Bay
I had nothing to live for
Look like nothing's gonna come my way

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay

Wasting time

Looks like ain't nothin' 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

I'm sittin' here restin' my bones
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Six thousand miles I've flown
Just to make this rock my home

Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Watchin' the tide roll away
Sittin' on the dock of the bay
Wasting time
