Jimmy Fallon has completed his very final ‘Late Night’, as he makes the move to replace Jay Leno as the host of ‘The Tonight Show’. Fallon was joined onstage by the The Muppets for a performance that may possibly be the chat show host’s best work yet. Singing hit track, ‘The Weight’ better known by its chorus, ’Take A Load Of Annie/Fanny’, the gang bid farewell to ‘Late Night‘.

Take a Load of Annie

I pulled into Nazareth, was feelin’ about half past dead
I just need some place where I can lay my head
“Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?”
He just grinned and shook my hand, and “no”, was all he said

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

I picked up my bag, I went lookin’ for a place to hide
When I saw karma and the Devil walkin’ side by side
I said, “Hey, karma, come on, let’s go downtown”
She said, “I gotta go, but m’friend can stick around”

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

Go down, Miss Moses, there’s nothin’ you can say
It’s just ol’ Luke, and Luke’s waitin’ on Judgement Day
“Well Luke, my friend, what about young Anna Lee?”
He said, “do me a favor son, won’t ya stay and keep Anna Lee company?”

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, and, and, and you put the load right on me

Catch a cannonball now, to take me down the line
My bag is sinkin’ low and I do believe it’s time
To get back to Miss Piggy, you know she’s the only one
Who sends me here with her regards for everyone

Take a load off Annie, take a load for free
Take a load off Annie, and you put the load
Put the load, put the load, put the load right on me.

Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooold
