Darius Rucker stopped by “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” to share a few songs from his latest album, When Was the Last Time.

While the South Carolina native performed his single, “For the First Time,” he also teamed up with Jimmy for a special song to thank the troops in honor of Memorial Day weekend. The fun part about their duet was that the song they sang was a parody of Hootie & the Blowfish’s, song “Only Wanna Be With You.” 

Darius, who is frontman for Hootie & the Blowfish, took the liberty to change the song to “Only Wanna Thank the Troops.”

Army, Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines / Here’s to the Navy for protecting all our seas / You serve with bravery / you serve with style / you serve with six-pack abs, I can barely run a mile / Well we owe it all to you / I only wanna thank the troops,” the two took turns singing to an audience filled with U.S. Armed forces. 

“We’re here to honor you / and to perform /  ’cause you look so damn good in those kick ass uniforms / brave men and women / is all I see / so let’s pass a law that says our troops can drink for free /  Well we owe it all to you / I only wanna thank the troops / Without you we’d be screwed / I only wanna thank the troops.

You fight for freedom / all across the land / I hope while you are here you have a one night stand / Let loose in New York / and be great / hope when your captain pukes you get it all on tape / just don’t post it on Youtube / I only wanna thank the troops / don’t get a bad tattoo / I only wanna thank the troops/ Thanks for all you do / I only wanna thank the troops.”

To the red, white and blue / I only wanna thank the troops / I only wanna thank the troops.”

“Thank you to all our men and women in uniform,” Jimmy said at the end of the song.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend to all!
