James Taylor and Jimmy Fallon sing on a seesaw on Tonight Show

Posted on

Jimmy Fallon pulled out his well-known (and at times scarily accurate) impersonation of James Taylor when the musician himself appeared on The Tonight Show. But rather than strum along on guitar with him to a classic Taylor track, the two James Taylors decided to sing an original song about seesaws… while playing on a seesaw.

The two Taylors sat opposite each other on a seesaw sitting conveniently in Fallon’s studio, singing about how much the power of the seesaw can change your world view. Though Taylor’s view was also thrown off as the two bobbed up and down and he had to stare at someone who looked just like him.

It may not be his next “Fire and Rain” or “Country Road,” but don’t be surprised to hear yourself humming “Two James Taylors on a Seesaw” later today.
