Bruce Springsteen’s “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” is one of those seminal holiday records that puts listeners right in the Christmas spirit. On The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon got viewers into the indictment spirit with a spoof: “Robert Mueller’s Comin’ to Town.”

Fallon brushed off his trusty old Springsteen impression and rewrote the lyrics to reflect developments in the U.S. Special Counsel’s investigation of Donald Trump and associates’ contact with Russia during the 2016 election.

Lyrics about emails and collusion touched on big news of the season, while the chorus brought the song home with recent news about Michael Flynn.

Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Advisor, pled guilty on Friday to lying to FBI agents about his Russia contacts.
