Jimmy Fallon (as James Taylor) sings "Romney & Bain"

This week at the Democratic National Convention, James Taylor entertained the delegates. On Friday on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host who's previously parodied David Bowie, Neil Young and Eddie Vedder, among others, added Taylor to his list, transforming "Fire & Rain" into a spot-on "Romney & Bain."

This week at the Democratic National Convention, James Taylor entertained the delegates. On Friday on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host who's previously parodied David Bowie, Neil Young and Eddie Vedder, among others, added Taylor to his list, transforming "Fire & Rain" into a spot-on "Romney & Bain."

Fallon's performance is a pro-Obama guitar strummer, for sure, but with bipartisan digs. It mentions Vice President Biden's name followed by the lyric "Oh Joe keep your piehole closed you're killing me" and rhymes "I've heard Bill Clinton speeches I thought would never end" with "I've seen Chris Christie jiggling in the wind." 

Thanks to Joan Myers for this. Watch below.
