VIDEO Jimmy Fallon’s Green Day farewell to “Lost” with altered lyrics

Jimmy Fallon as Green Day on the 2010 Emmy Awards

On the 62nd Prime Time Emmy Awards show Jimmy Fallon did a three-part tribute to television shows that ended in 2010 by performing popular songs with rewritten lyrics.

The tribute trifecta began with Elton John’s “Candle In the Wind” for 24 which was followed by Boys II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” for Law and Order.

The last parody was for Lost and was set to the tune of Green Day’s “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).” Here’s a fantastic high-definition video of the performance followed by the altered lyrics. (Be sure to click “Full Screen” on this one!)

Another show is gone
’cause Lost is over too
Locke was the smoke monster
and Jacob was some dude
Goodbye to Kate and Sawyer
Hurley Ben and Jack
He grew a crazy beard and said
“We have to go back”
“We have to go baaaaaaack!”

The Island it was was mythical
but in the end they died
I didn’t understand it but I tried

The Island it was was mythical
and in the end they died
I didn’t understand it but I tried

Thank You!
