The Lyrics

Boston's Big Dig is not the only contender in the cost-overruns department. The price tag for replacing the eastern span of the Oakland-San Francisco Bay Bridge has nearly tripled--and counting as the gov and legislator argue about what to do, halting work and costing extra millions. Caltrans is the state transportation agency that apparently bears the majority of blame for this fiasco.
CHORUS:
And still the bills go up (bills go up),
Big F*ckup: Bay Bridge.
The tolls won't go down (won't go down).
It's making us frown.
And then worst of all (worst of all),
The work is stalled--
Bay Bridge; they debate the bills ('bate the bills). . .
Political shills.
They bleed you each time you cross it, snarling.
The situation is real rank.
So bills go up (bills go up);
Big F*ckup will break the bank.

Cost overruns don't end,
They rise again and again.
As we wait, they masturbate and spend.

The gov is a whore;
You pay to get through his door.
Legislators let us down again.

(Pay, pay pay) Bay Bridge, Bay Bridge in a bind.
(Pay, pay, pay) Jerkoffs in kind: brain-dead at Caltrans.
Get more loans--
The price again has grown,
No end date due.
(Screwed!)

CHORUS

Arnold's our boy; he and the Assembly toy with this chore--
A standoff of bozos.
Naught they say is true, and Caltrans are liars, too. Call them whores--
You'd understate it so.

(Pay, pay pay) Bay Bridge, Bay Bridge in a bind.
(Pay, pay, pay) Things are not fine, and no one's happy.
Budget's blown,
The public's getting boned,
No end date due.
(Screwed!)

CHORUS

They bleed you each time you cross it, Bay Bridge.
The situation is real rank.
So bills go up (bills go up);
Big F*ckup will break the bank.

Of course not. If the Bills won the Super Bowl, then murder will be legalized.
