Classic songs for a nurse sing-along

4. “Sitting on the Dock of the (Ambulance) Bay”
Emergency nurses run like heck when they’re busy and spend quiet times wondering what’s going to hit them next. Otis Redding wrote a song that took just a bit of tweaking to be perfect for these nurses: “Sitting on the Dock of the (Ambulance) Bay.”

Sittin’ in the mornin’ sun
Cause I’ll be runnin ’til the evenin’ comes
Helpin’ the patients roll in
Then I help ’em roll away again
I’m standin’ by the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the patients roll away
Standin’ by the dock of the bay
Passin’ time

Left my home in Georgia
To be a nurse here at the Bay
I had patients to care for
Handling all that’s gonna come my way

Now I’m standin’ by the dock of the bay
Helpin’ the patients roll away
Standin’ by the dock of the bay, passin’ time
Looks like nothing’s gonna change
Everything still remains the same
I can’t do what 10 people tell me to do
They’re just driving me insane.
I’ll just sit a minute to rest my bones
Two thousand miles, it seems I roamed
No idea when I’ll be heading home.
I’m just gonna stand by the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the patients roll away
Standin’ on the dock of the bay
Passin’ time
