Stuck in Gov. Chris Christie's Traffic Jam

The cruelest cut: Springsteen goofs on Christie over Bridgegate -- ... Exit question: Jimmy Fallon does a better Springsteen than Springsteen, doesn’t he?

LA Times:
Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Fallon mock Chris Christie's 'Bridgegate' -- ... In 2012, CBS News reported that Christie had been to more than 100 Springsteen concerts and when they met for the first time in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Christie said he wept after hugging the rock star.

Washington Post:
Represented below is a composite of how commuters travel into Manhattan from New Jersey over the George Washington Bridge, and how during a four-day closure last September (9-12) the flow pattern was disrupted.

Gov. Chris Christie Traffic Jam

-----
Lyrics to Fallon/Springsteen "Gov. Chris Christie Traffic Jam"
Jimmy:
In day the day we sweated out on the streets / Stuck in traffic on the GWB
They shut down the toll booths of glory / 'Cause we didn't endorse Christie
Sprung from cages on highway 9
We got three lanes closed / So Jersey get your ass in a line
Oh baby / This Bridgegate was just payback / It's a bitch slap, to the state Democrats
We gotta get out while we can
We're stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam

Bruce:
Governor let me in / I wanna to be your friend / There'll be no partisan divisions
Let me wrap my legs 'round your mighty rims / And relieve your stressful condition

You have Wall Street masters stuck check-to-check 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

[Guitar instrumental]

One, Two, Three, Four

Jimmy:
The highway's jammed with pissed off drivers with no place left to go
And the press conference went on and on

Bruce:
It was longer than one of own damn shows

Jimmy:
Someday Governor, I don't know when
This will all end, but 'til then

Together:
You're killin' the workin' man
Who's stuck in the Governor Chris Christie Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam

Who whoa whoa!
Who whoa whoa!

Bruce:
I gotta to take a leak / I really gotta take a leak

Together:
Down in Jersey Land
