Ode to Odo

by Cyndee Davis
To the tune of "I've Been Working on the Railroad"

I've been watching through the porthole
What do you think I see?
Odo melted in his bucket
Right in front of me.

Can't he hear Ben Sisko calling
"Security to Quark's Bar!
Dax and Kira started fighting
And pushed things way too far."

Odo don't you know?
Odo can't you go?
Why aren't you on your way-ay-ay?
Odo don't be slow,
Odo better go
Ain't no time for delay.

Welllll...Someone's in the bucket with Odo
Someone's in the bucket I know-oh-oh-oh!
Someone's in the bucket with Odo
Making his protoplasm glow.

And singin'...
"Yeehaw, we don't want to go
We're procreating you know-oh-oh-oh!"
Someone's in the bucket with Odo
Making his protoplasm grow!
