"You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not lie to the FBI."

Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon channeled Bruce Springsteen on Monday night to address the recent guilty plea by Michael Flynn to lying under oath to FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian investigation. 

Sporting mirrored shades, a red bandana, and no sleeves, Fallon sang a festive, politically charged version of Springtsteen's "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" called "Robert Mueller's Comin' to Town."

"It's all cold down along D.C., wind's whipping round the White House," Fallon said in his best Springsteen growl. "You guys all been good this year? Jared, you been good? Everybody in the Trump administration been good, or what? That's not many, not many -- you guys are in trouble out here..."

He then launched into the chorus: "You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not lie to the FBI. Robert Mueller's comin' to town."

Other lyrics included references to Russian meetings, Mueller "seeing all your emails" and knowing that "you tried to collude." 

"It isn't fake news, for goodness' sake," crooned Fallon.
