Paul McCartney Spoofs “Yesterday” on ‘Fallon’
The Beatle concocts hilarious new lyrics of his classic song on late-night TV.
Paul McCartney dropped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon yesterday, where he talked about hanging out with President Obama, being recognized at the prestigious Kennedy Center Honors, and his other big lifetime achievements. Nothing earth shattering, but he did cap off his appearance with a hilarious version of his Beatles classic “Yesterday” — featuring never-before-heard lyrics. Check it out below.
According to McCartney, the icon originally wrote the song — the most covered tune in the history of pop music — with alternate words to make them easier to remember, subbing the “yesterday” lyric with “scrambled eggs.” Rhymes with: “Oh, my baby, how I love your legs.”
McCartney, duetting with Fallon, then go on to offer more gut-busting alternate lyrics for the song, including musings on waffle fries, tofu wings (Macca’s vegetarian), and onion rings. Hungry yet?
