Christie Turkey

A musical interlude for your Wednesday.

With Chris Christie-sized apologies to Simon and Garfunkel, submitted for your entertainment is an adaptation of their classic, “Bridge Over Troubled Waters”, dedicated to New Jersey’s current governor and future convict.

BRIDGE INTO TROUBLED WATERS

When you’re Christie
Stealing all
When schemes are in your eye
(The FB)I will find them all

Time’s not on your side
When crimes get rough
And alibis just won’t come
Like a bridge into troubled water
I will play me dumb
Like a bridge into troubled water
I will play me dumb

When you’re bound to run
When you’re in the lead
When polling falls so hard
(The FB)I will come for you

You’ll take the fall
When subpoenas come
And claims made by a chum
Like a bridge into troubled water
I will play me dumb
Like a bridge into troubled water
I will play me dumb

Rail on  Surrogate Guys,
Rail on by
Your time is done to shill
The Fed teams are on their way

See how they smile
If you need false hope
Fox’s sailing right behind
But like a bridge into troubled water
It’s downhill this time
Like a bridge into troubled water
It’s downhill this time

Thanks for the link, Kalima, and the
subpoenas couldn’t come to a more
“deserving” bully and thug,
masquerading as an honest man
and governor!

Sorry CCR!

I see a Fat Man Writhing,
I see trouble on the way,
Traffic jams to the horizon,
I see bad times all day.

He’s so round tonight,
But he’s in a lot of strife,
There’s a Fat Man on the writhe!

When Sandy Hurricane was blowin’,
He took credit for the fix,
Unless you didn’t quite endorse him,
Well then, the funds for you are NIX!

Chorus.

PPO – that’s wonderful, too! I’m going to be humming all these songs all day long.

Good morning,pinkpantheroz,

I was thinking of trying my hand at adapting the lyrics of a popular song to reflect the woes of the bridge-blocking, strong-arm, bullyboy tactics of the Christie Cabal — but no more.

You’ve just done it to perfection, and you can’t be topped. To attempt it now would be to bring coals to Newcastle or, more to the point, like blocking the remaining open approach lane from Fort Lee to the George Washington Bridge.

Wow, pinkpanther, just WOW! 🙂

EDIT:
And you don’t need to say “Sorry” to Creedence Clearwater Revival — they would be in awe and applaud your version!

You are incredibly kind, noman. Blush!

Thank you for the compliment,
pinkpantheroz. But I just call them
as I see ’em, and you’re incredibly
talented.

And BTW, if you haven’t noticed it
yet, please see the edit to my original
accolade to you above.

Noman, I’m replying to your query here, because there wasn’t a reply button on your last post. Yes, I saw you You-know-where, and had my handle, pinkpantheroz, the same there.
Maybe we didn’t share interests, but I do remember your handle coming up.

NoManIsAnIsland

NoManIsAnIsland

Thanks. It was fine to reply
here, and I’ve run into the no-reply button situation myself a number of times and done as you just did!

I don’t think I saw your handle
coming up you-know-where, but I might have in the 11 months I posted.

At any rate, I’m very glad to meet you now. Who said clouds
never have silver linings?

Unless you’re a very early bird
— it’s 3:35 A.M. in Melbourne
as I type these words — you’re
not up yet, but good morning
to you when you are, and I’ll
try to see you on Vox Pop
— I know about it but haven’t
been there yet.

pinkpantheroz

You’re even more generous! Maybe we can meet in Vox Pop tomorrow? It is a pleasure writing here, in comparison to that Site That Has No Name! Hope you’re enjoying it as well.

Well, it has just gone 2.00 am here in Melbourne, so I’m off to bed. Cheerio everyone for now.

I don’t know if you saw my post of 8:37 AM U.S. CST yet,
but being on opposite sides of
the International Date Line
may be causing a mix up for us
in regard to Vox Pop.

It’s Saturday afternoon in the U.S., and it appears Vox Pop starts at 7:00 PM PST on Fridays. So if I don’t catch
you before then, I hope to see
you there NEXT Friday night, our time!

Thank you again. I’ll look for you on Vox Pop tomorrow; but when its 2:00 AM in Melbourne, it’s 9:00 AM the day before where I am, close to the geographical center of the Continental U.S., so I’m not sure if we’ll make contact there!

I certainly am also enjoying writing here in comparison to “that Site That Has No Name”
…and Dares Not Say It!

I don’t think we met there. I was No Man Is An Island there as well. What, if I may ask, was
your screen name?

Good on you, and cheerio!

Perfect lyrics for an incredible event presided over by someone who thought he walked on that water.

Thanks, Ad Lib. And thanks for the Lt.Gov’s speech – I saw it when it ran on the news and was whomperjawed at her “performance” that, yes, was clearly scripted and untrue.

Scandal after scandal on the Right, all of them federal charges so they’re not just walking away unscathed as state charges might allow. These folks are taking their medicine, and to quote another song, no “Spoonful of Sugar” will help them.

Hubris is a terrible thing.

Very well said, choicelady — and I’m in complete agreement
with you save for “These folks are taking their medicine.”

As they continue to pile lie upon lie and expect us to believe them, they aren’t taking their medicine at all. But if they
come to trial on federal corruption charges and are convicted
and sent up the river, THEN they will take their medicine, and
poetic justice will be theirs and ours, too.

Nirek

NoMan, that is what they do. Lie until people start to believe it. They believe that if you tell a lie enough times it becomes truth. We know better though.

NoManIsAnIsland

NoManIsAnIsland

Of course that’s what they do, Nirek. While they’re too young to have studied at the club foot of the late and very unlamented Joseph Goebbels, nevertheless they have proved apt students and users of his Big Lie technique.

We certainly do know better, and so will
many federal juries — which will be kept
busy for some time hearing the cases of
official corruption that should soon come cascading down on Christie and his
cowardly cronies.

“Wronger Than The Storm” works for me!

Absolutely precious AdLib, and as clever and astute as always. Loved it and thank you for the laugh. 😆

Very well said, AdLib! I hope we’ll see soon if Christie can take it
as well as he dishes it out, though I rather doubt he will.

Pretty funny Ad.

Another line may be, “A lap band round a troubled waistline.”

Love it, AdLib! Hey this is fun.

Can I try one for Ohio’s own John Boehner?

Let’s stick with the Simon and Garfunkel theme. How about “59th Street Bridge Song”? Otherwise known as “Feelin’ Groovy”?

Slow down. I’m drinkin’ too fast.

Got to make the Merlot last.

Gavellin’ in the House alone,

Lookin’ for wine and feelin’ boozy.

Hello, Koch-boys, whatcha buyin’?

I’m for sale. Complete with cryin’.

Ain’tcha got no cash for me?

I’m lookin’ for votes and feelin’ boozy.

Got no principles. No promises to keep.

I’m orange and I’m drowsy and ready to weep.

Let your Tea Party drop all its crazy on me.

I’m lookin’ for cash and feelin’ boozy.

Kes, that was great. I sang it in my head and it works great!

Thanks so much for the kind words, Nirek and friends. It was fun.

You nailed it, Kesman, and you nailed Boozener — I meant Boehner. Yeah, that’s the ticket, I meant Boehner!

LOL! Very well done kes. Kudos.

Priceless, AdLib! Beats the Bachmann Tenament Symphony all ends up!

Too funny!

“I will play me dumb”

Simon and Garfunkle would be proud.
