Late Night With Jimmy Fallon

McCartney offers up 'Yesterday's' scrambled eggs on Fallon

Is there any musical great who Jimmy Fallon can't get to do an amazing performance on his "Late Night" show? He's had Bruce Springsteen do little Willow Smith's viral hit "Whip My Hair," Justin Timberlake perform the history of rap and much, much more.

But Thursday night's musical performance may be one of the best, if not the absolute best. You see, Fallon not only landed Paul McCartney, he got the Beatle to sing. And not just any song, but "Yesterday," a tune that the Guinness World Records notes has the most cover versions. On top of that, McCartney didn't even perform the official lyrics, the musician offered up the original and hilarious lyrics!

A sample: "Scrambled eggs, oh my baby how I love your legs! Not as much as I love scrambled eggs, oh we should eat some scrambled eggs. Waffle fries, oh my darling how I love your thighs! Not as much as I love waffle fries, oh have you tried ... the waffle fries."

Check it out:

 

As someone who seriously loves both scrambled eggs and waffle fries (but not so much the tofu wings), I think this version is even better than the original! What do you think? Better? Worse? One of Fallon's best musical offerings?
