The Lyrics

If you thought "Bridgeghazi" would get me back onto this site, you guessed right. I would have gotten back sooner, but there was SO much traffic!
(instrumental opening)

"Slow down, you move too fast."
Said the Governor who's fat-assed.
Just... shuttin' down the gate of tolls.
Look at that bum, he's reelin', Christie!
(Reelin', Christie!)
(Reelin', Christie!)
Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!
(Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!)

Hello, Fort Lee, whatcha knowin'?
All that smoke the Governor's blowin'?
Ain't ya got revenge for me?
Doo da da doo doo, reelin' Christie!
(Reelin' Christie!)
(Reelin' Christie!)
Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!
(Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!)

He's put his White House chances all to sleep.
We're baffled, he's lousy, an absolute creep.
No accident woman died, unlike Teddy.
Not on this bridge. Now reels Christie!

Da, da, da da da...

(instrumental break)

Slows down, his bandwagon.
The country now sees he's a bum.
Just... watch the fat boy wobble on.
Lookin' for fun? Watch reelin' Christie!
(Reelin' Christie!)
(Reelin' Christie!)
Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!
(Da da da da da da da, reelin', Christie!)

Da, da, da da da...

(instrumental fadeout)

You'll spark no outrage from me about this, meine proggchen. Bring out the long knives and have at the fat, turncoating bastard. But, as William Shaskespeare might put it "Hew him as a portion fit for hounds. Do not carve him as a dish fit for gods."

Or, as Shakespeare might also have put it, "And since he cannot prove a lover, he is determined to prove a villain."

How about "Fort Lee or not Fort Lee? That's the congestion."

An elderly woman was reported to have died of a heart attack when paramedics were delayed from reaching her. Wonder how many Christie supporters were caught in the traffic jam. Very nice parody. The security code for this comment is SHT. Quite appropriate. Mainstream media were promoting Christie for Republican nomination, knowing any Democrat could beat him. They will have to back a different loser, now.

Good to see you, Mr. P. Had a feeling you couldn't resist a right-wing oopsy.

Very nice, John. Maybe you could use, "I Cannot Schnell, Can You?" Ironically, the security code for this comment is "JET."

After reading Patrick's comment, now I realize the reason why Christie is fat, I mean he's full of it all this time.
