There are a few things I really love: Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London" and pointing out the many, many ways New Jersey politicians find to waste our money.

(Well, OK, I really love great pork products too, but now I'm getting off topic).

I close out every morning show with the former, and I spend a lot of time on the latter — because I really do believe that if people know what's going on, they can make a difference. We saw it with your countless calls to legislators to defeat the 23-cent gas tax hike (though that fight still isn't quite over), and so long as you stay vigilant, we'll see it again and again.

Together, all of us who care about our state and its future will make New Jersey the state it should be — we love it here, despite all its flaws, and we're #digginin.

I got a real kick out of this song my friend and colleague Paul Porowski from Chasing News wrote — who needs "Werewolves of London" when you've got "Vampires of Trenton?"

For copyright reasons, we can't use Paul's recording on our website — but maybe I should start closing out the show with it every day. Take a look at the lyrics and let me know what you think.

But hey — a lot of you are really talented. I'd love to see one of you take this on too! Record a version, post it on YouTube and tweet me at @NJ1015 and @BillSpadea. I can't wait!

Vampires of Trenton
by Paul Porowski

I saw some legislators with ball point pens in their hands

Trying to sign the TTF with some major gas pains

They were looking to lower the tax rate for headlines

Making you give up your hard earned cash again

AAAAHOO! VAMPIRES IN TRENTON
Aaahoo!
AAAAHOO! VAMPIRES IN TRENTON
Aaahoo!

YA EVER HEAR THEM FLAPPIN' WINGS AROUND YOUR DOOR.

YA BETTER NOT LET THEM IN

THEY MUTILATED THE LITTLE OLD ASSEMBLY BILL LATE THAT NIGHT

AAAAAWWWH, VAMPIRES OF TRENTON AGAIN
Aaahoo!
VAMPIRES OF TRENTON
aAAAAHOOO
Aaahoo!
VAMPIRES OF TRENTON AGAIN
Aaahoo!
