The Lyrics

Michael rows a boat from shore—traffic screws ya.
Michael rows a boat from shore. “Traffic, screw ya!”

Bridge-trip hell is gonna fail—traffic screws ya.
Wicked swells; he’s gotta bail—faster, dude, yeah!

River Hudson is chilly and cold—nasty, too, yeah!
But rusty bridge corrodes the soul—traffic screws ya.

Hudson River is deep and wide—nasty, too, yeah!
Trying the bridge he can’t abide—traffic screws ya.

The river is deep and the river is wide—man, that’s true, yeah.
Sittin’ in a car—just time to bide—jack off, too, yeah!

Michael rows a boat from shore—traffic screws ya.
Michael knows the Fort Lee score. “Traffic, screw ya!”
