The Canada Goose Song
(Polly Edwards)

(Click here to see it on YouTube!)

Every single word in this song is a true story. That’s all I really need to say. I’m probably famous on the internet somewhere.

I go to school at Grebel College, University of Waterloo
When classes are done, I catch my bus ‘cause there’s not much else to do
One day I was on my way to get the number 7
When up ahead I spied a little piece of Heaven

There was a bird down by the creek sitting on her little nest
I thought “Aww. Nature. Ain’t it the best?
The way they guard their young is really pretty goshdarn sweet”
But that was before I saw the ninja goose that had snuck up to my feet

Then I got chased by a Canada Goose up the highway median
Not a car would help by intercedian’
My heart was filled with dread
As huge wings beat upon my head
I was sure I’d end up dead or bleedian’

I’ve never had a problem with geese, they’ve been okay by me
They’re kinda cool when they fly up high in their big old honky V’s
I wasn’t that close to the nest - maybe it was my perfume
But you wouldn’t believe how fast a goose can at your head just zoom

I did a very sensible thing, I flailed my arms and ran
Just as fast a person with a heavy saxophone case can
I tore out into traffic screaming “I don’t want your babies!”
And I swore in a way most unbecoming of a well brought up young lady

But I was being chased by a Canada Goose up the highway median
Not a car would help by intercedian’
I thought my heart would fail
When it tried to eat my ponytail
And upon my eyes and ears it tried a-feedian’

Now, geese, I am not sure that you have been quite aptly named
Intimidation’s never been this country’s greatest game
You seemed to quite enjoy the time spent making me afraid o’ ya ‘n
I’m not sure that that’s very Canadian

Yeah, I got chased by a Canada Goose up the highway median
Not a car would help by intercedian’
I should have been more wary
‘Cause geese are bloody scary
And for the record, they don’t respond to pleadian’

I made a sign to warn others of possible attack
But I never put it up ‘cause I was too scared to go back
So I sing this song to say beware in the vicinity
Of Westmount Road and University

Or you’ll get chased by a Canada Goose up the highway median
Not a car will help by intercedian’
They may not like to boast
But geese are real damn big up close
You’ll be lucky not to end up dead or bleedian’
You’ll be lucky not to end up dead or bleedian’
