Rocker Bruce Springsteen lampooned an embattled politician from his native New Jersey by performing a parody version of his hit Born To Run on U.S. TV. The Boss took aim at the state's Governor Chris Christie during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, mocking the politician's alleged involvement in a scheme which brought traffic chaos to New Jersey and New York City by closing lanes on the George Washington Bridge. Springsteen teamed up with Fallon to perform a comedy version of Born To Run, with lyrics mocking Christie and the bridge scandal, singing, "You got Wall Street masters stuck cheek-to-cheek with blue collar truckers/ and man I really got to take a leak, but I can't, I'm stuck in Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey, traffic jam." Christie is reportedly a big fan of Springsteen's music.
