Jurassic Park is forever! More than 20 years after Jeff Goldblum starred in the celebrated adventure flick alongside Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Richard Attenborough, the actor is still voicing his love for the film.
Goldblum, 61, stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers this week, and got to talking about Jurassic Park and its famous theme song. While the original melodic theme is without words, Goldblum told Seth Meyers, 40, that he has learned accompanying lyrics to the song.
“One could go on the internet, as I did a while ago, and I only learned a piece,” Goldblum said of the fan-written lyrics. “There’s something more. You could go on it right now… somebody else wrote this. I know not whom, but they wrote something to the tune, which I’ll bet you know because people mostly see that 200 times.”
Goldblum then grabbed a mic and, with a little assistance from Meyers’ band, belted the lyrics to the theme.
“In Jurassic Park / scary in the dark / I’m so scared that I’ll be eaten,” he crooned.
Goldblum taught the lyrics to Meyers and his studio audience, leading the group in a rousing sing-along.
“I will say, all things being equal, I think it was probably right not to have the lyrics in the actual film,” Meyers said. “I think it was better with no lyrics in the film.”
For his part, Goldblum disagreed. “Really?” he questioned. “I think it was a big mistake.”
