Classic. Jimmy Fallon played Bruce Springsteen to sing about New Jersey Republican governor Chris Christie's administration decision to create a traffic jam to punish a Democrat. He starts to sing Springsteen's "Born to Run" in a getup from Springsteen's younger years. He is later joined by the real Bruce Springsteen who by the way hails from New Jersey. Also, Christie is a huge Springsteen fan. Ouch. Classic comedy. The Huffington Post transcribed the parody lyrics.
In the day we sweat it out on the streets stuck in traffic on the GWB
They shut down the tollbooths of glory because we didn't endorse Christie
Sprung from cages on Highway 9
We got three lanes closed, So Jersey get your ass in line
Ooohhh, baby this Bridgegate was just pay back
It's a bitch slap to the state Democrats
We gotta get out but we can't,
We're stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam.
[The real Springsteen walks out]
Governor, let me in, I wanna be your friend
They'll be no partisan divisions
Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty rims
And relieve your stressful conditions
We've got Wall Street masters stuck cheek to cheek
With blue-collar truckers, and man I really gotta take a leak
But I can't
I'm stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam
1, 2, 3, 4!
Highways jammed with pissed off drivers with no place left to go
And the press conference went on and on
It was longer than one of my own damn shows
Some day Governor, I don't know when
This will all end, but 'til then
You're killin' the workin' man.
Who's stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee New Jersey traffic jam.
Whoa whoa whoa!
Whoa whoa whoa!
I gotta take a leak! I really gotta take a leak!
Down in Jersey land!
