The Lyrics

Too obvious to pass up.
Strife goes on day after day.
Car horns are honking away.
So ferry ’cross from Jersey. . .
watch the damn bridge high above. . .
Bronx Cheer relay.

People don’t rush anywhere;
each inside a car stuck there.
So ferry ’cross from Jersey
and don’t be stuck with car care. . .
stooges of gov.

People car-bound at the border
aren't smiling in the fray.
Humid air and a game deployed
by hacks who should be in gray
duds and in a prison bay,
the keys locked and thrown away.

Not merry; cross in Jersey—
drivers screwed by hacks of gov.
So here they stay;
can’t get away.
Here they’ll stay.

Someone ought to serve about 20 years for homicide for the woman who died waiting for an ambulance stuck in traffic. Just when you think politicians have sunk to a new low, they find a way to exceed themselves.
