I would like to tell you a story today

A story of how my confidence in life went astray

That one fateful day

On the Jersey Bridge To Nowhere

It started with a call for an ambulance

After experiencing sharp pains in my chest

These pains I could no longer bear

Please get me out of here!

On the Jersey Bridge To Nowhere

The ambulance at last had finally arrived

I was relieved to be finally put inside

Now here I will reside

On the Jersey Bridge To Nowhere

The paramedics are finally here!

Their arrival to the hospital half-way there

Had filled me with great cheer

I heard one whisper, ” It’s too late I fear.”

On the Jersey Bridge To Nowhere

And so here I sing my sad song

Of the day gone inexplicably wrong

Of the ambulance trip that took too long

Why had the governor done me wrong?

On the Jersey Bridge To Nowhere

Corruption and hypocrisy

Are the enemies of democracy

This I thought as I struggled to breathe

And my ever present vigilance

Fell to eternal sleep

On the Jersey Bridge to Nowhere
