The Toll Roads [parody based on the TV show theme "The Love Boat'] by Rev. Reynard N. Blake, Jr.
Cones, Chris Christie did move
Governor, tell me, was that true?
Laugh on--belittle press corps
Governor, the buck stops with you
The Toll Roads--strong-arming folks like Soprano thugs
The Toll Roads--memories fade when subpoenaed, huh?
Will your staff down in Trenton
Fall on swords at your command?
And does, your staff run the show?
Correspondence files help the public know
Who is in charge?
Are you, or not?
