On Thursday, May 24, the audience on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was all those on military Fleet Week. The host and Darius Rucker paid tribute to them with “Only Wanna Thank The Troops.”

The two donned guitars and changed up the lyrics to Hootie & the Blowfish’s 1995 hit “Only Wanna Be With You”. They tried to keep straight faces as they sang the funny lyrics like:

“You serve with bravery / You serve with style / You serve with six pack abs, I can barely run a mile.”
