My Ode to 480 Otis by Goldilocks, Canada:

Sung to “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” by OTIS Redding

Sitting in the office mist


It’s amazing how we coexist


Watching the salmon jump


I’m striving to get pleasantly plump, yeah

I’m sitting at the base of the falls


In bright sun or driving squalls, ooh


I’m just sitting at the base of the falls


So sublime

I left my den on dumpling


Headed for the river deep


Have to catch me high fat salmon


In preparation for my long, cold sleep

So, I’m gon’ sit at the base of the falls


Following my protocols, ooh


No sows in estrus or nasty brawls


Summertime

In the heart of my home range


Everything still remains the same


Now, covered in a snowy blanket of white


The granite walls echo my name, listen

Sleeping now resting my bones


While you worry about all the unknowns, listen


The walls echo my name


Nothing will extinguish my flame

Forever, I’ll be sitting in the mist


In eternal salmon bliss, ooh


Sitting at the base of the falls


Wintertime
