The Staple Singers The Dock Of The Bay

Sittin’ in the morning sun

I’ll be sittin’ when the evening come

Watching ships roll in

And I’ll watch ’em roll away again

Lord, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time

I left my home in Georgia

Headed for the Frisco bay

I have nothing to live for

Looks like nothings gonna come my way

So I’m gonna sit on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away, ooh Lord

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, oh

Look like nothings gonna change

Every, everything still remains the same

I can’t do what ten people tell me to do

So I guess I’ll remain the same, yeah

Sittin’ here resting my bones

This loneliness won’t leave me alone, no

Two thousand miles I roam

Just to make this dock my home

Now, I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Watching the tide roll away, yeah

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, oh yeah

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, time, time, oh

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, time, time

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, time, time

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, time, time, oh

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

Wasting time, time, time

The Staple Singers A Whole Lot Of Love

Some times the life is so hard, things are so bad

Rough times at tomorrow is as twice as sad

But, do not you give up – no, the life is not over

Look to the good side – it could be twice as bad

And, if comes another day and I know,

That there will be someway – you will see

A whole lot of love; a whole lot of love amongst us

Let me talk about it – baby, without even trying

When I look at to your eyes, they are beautiful things

But, do not you give up – no, the life is not over

Keep on – keeping on, see what the love can bring

And, if comes another day and I know,

That there will be someway – there will be

A whole lot of love; a whole lot of love; a whole lot of love

And if comes another day, and I know that,

There will be someway – there will be someway

A whole lot of love; a whole lot of love;

A whole lot of love…

The Staple Singers Are You Sure

Are you sure there’s nothing you can do

To help someone worse off than you?

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure it’ll be a waste of time

To stop and let your love light shine?

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure that it will be in vain

To show some love for your fellow man?

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Think about it and be sure

Are you sure?

Are you sure that it’s not your place

To help someone whose lost their way?

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure it’s not your concern

When you see a neighbor’s home is burned?

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure that I will still be down

When you’ve realized that you’ve been blind

Think before you answer, are you sure?

Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Think about it and be sure

Please, please, please be sure

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?

Are you sure? Are you sure?
