It’s not just that it’s the Muppets, it’s that it’s also one of the greatest songs in the history of mankind, and one of those songs that lends itself so well to covers (appropriately, this echoes the Mavis Staples’ cover)

This is how you leave a show, folks. This is how you walk out those doors, and enter the big time, echoing Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz, the final performance of The Band. You wanna pay homage, you pay homage to the motherf**king best.

Plus one billion style points.

Honest, to God, you see something like this, and you think: Jimmy Fallon must have the best parents. Congrats, Fallon, and good luck with The Tonight Show.
