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
