James Taylor: Jimmy Kimmel appearance includes 'in my pants' joke

Posted on


“I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain… in my pants.”

That may not be exactly how you remember James Taylor’s classic song “Fire and Rain,” but the legendary songwriter showed us on Wednesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he’s added a twist (recommended by Kimmel) to his hits.

Now you can hear all of your favorite James Taylor songs with the words “in my pants” at the end.

“Oh, Mexico, in my pants, sounds so simple I just got to go, in my pants…” Taylor sang.

Kimmel and Taylor joined forces in a fake infomercial to promote the Taylor’s new greatest hits album, and they both seemed eager to show us all the times Taylor added “in my pants” to his songs.

“You won’t believe how much music James Taylor has in his pants,” Kimmel said.

“It’s a lot,” James confirmed.
