Jimmy Fallon Gets to Sing with Paul McCartney


Last night, Jimmy Fallon got to sing with another Beatle. He had Ringo Starr on this summer, and now Paul McCartney.

Since McCartney is going to be on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, he couldn’t do a regular performance. So Jimmy brilliantly thought up a funny bit: he and McCartney would sing “Yesterday” with its original “Scrambled Eggs” lyrics. Only, there were no lyrics — just those words — so Fallon and team came up with hilarious verses.

Jimmy’s on a roll–his New York magazine cover was great, and the Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young duet was also genius

Congrats Jimmy–well done!
