Defense of Naval Station Newport

A parody of "Sittin' on the [edited] of the Bay" as sung by Otis Redding

 


Sittin' in the mornin' sun
I'll be sinkin' when the evenin' come
Watching the shells roll in
Then I watch 'em come my way again

I'm sittin' here in Newport bay
Watching the friendlies go away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' here in Newport bay
Ain't it fine

I sent my planes explorin'
Headed out 'cross the ocean sea
Cause I had something to give, yeah
But it look like nothin's gonna come my way

So I'm sittin' here in Newport bay
Watching the friendlies go away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' here in Newport bay
Ain't it fine

Look 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 remain the same, yes

Sittin' here resting my bones
Cause my planes rearm, just leave me alone
The squadrons, they soon will roam
But now I make this dock my home

So I'm sittin' here in Newport bay
Watching the friendlies go away
Ooo, I'm just sittin' here in Newport bay
Ain't it fine

Not to pick too many nits, but Naval Station Newport is on Narragansett Bay in RI.  Newport Bay is in CA. 

Claim artistic license.

Did not know that. Took a trip out to New England one summer and saw the Nautilus next to the Naval Submarine Base at New London, CT. I found it interesting that you could turn the Nautilus' periscope around and look right into the submarine base. I wonder if anyone at the sub base realized that people could see right into classified areas? I saw a sign that said "Newport" but did not go there.
