Idris Elba and Jimmy Fal­lon trans­late clas­sic lyrics

Some clas­sic songs are so iconic that many peo­ple ig­nore the orig­i­nal mean­ing of the lyrics for the sake of a sing-a-long. Sin­gles like Brit­ney Spears’ Baby One More Time and Boyz II Men’s I’ll Make Love To You are so iconic, it doesn’t mat­ter what the lyri­cal con­tent re­ally is since fans will still belt it. But Jimmy Fal­lon and Idris Elba ex­per­i­mented with lyrics dur­ing a skit this week that de­liv­ered a re­vamped ver­sion of clas­sic lyrics af­ter the pair ran the con­tent through Google Trans­late. The two dropped to their knees belt­ing ’90’s pop ra­dio sta­ples, turn­ing the Boyz II hit into some­thing strictly their own.

James Cor­den gets pay­back on Gor­don Ram­say

But in that time, ‘The Mooch’ be­came the golden child of the late-night as his bad be­hav­iour and dirty lan­guage made him the per­fect tar­get for a tidal wave of jokes. As one last salute to the past 10 days, Jimmy Kim­mel imag­ined what Scara­mucci would say in a non-fil­tered in­ter­view af­ter his fir­ing, which in­cluded a ton of ex­ple­tive mo­ments. “How was I fired? How the f--- do you think? A magic owl flew in my f---ing win­dow while I was tak­ing a dump,” Kim­mel’s makeshift Mooch said.
