Given all the buzz about Jay Leno”s upcoming replacement on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon decided to capitalize on the moment with a hilarious, good-natured song.
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon began last night (April 1) with an appropriate April Fools Day spoof in which Leno called in for a chat.
Jay asked, Hey, kid. How you holding up, before declaring, Ill live. Ive been through this before, yknow. Got to admit, Im a little sick of this.
Then they launched into a song!
Only you, every night you throw to me, Jay Leno
In the news, all they do, is say Im replacing you
They think I can woo
Leno crooned back,
So the network says
Here”s an idea
Pack your bags, take a hike
Fallon: Tonight, Tonight
Who”s gonna host Tonight
Is it gonna be Jimmy or Jay
Where will they tape Tonight
In New York Will it stay in L.A.
Leno: Tonight, Tonight
My ratings were all right
Twenty years and I”m still in first place
I”ve got Fox on the line
Or maybe I could take over for Dave
In unison: Tonight, Tonight
Why do they say we fight
I like you, you like me, we”re okay
Who cares who hosts Tonight
People just watch online the next day!
