From the man who brought you "The Chanukah Song," it's an ode to David Letterman! Adam Sandler reminded Us of his musical side on the Late Show on Tuesday, May 12, breaking out a guitar to honor the departing late-night host.
Speaking to Letterman, 68, just days before his final show on May 20, Sandler took the opportunity to pay tribute to the iconic comedian.
"I've been trying to write this song for you for the last whenever," Sandler, 48, told his longtime pal. While the Big Daddy star hesitated to leave the guest couch, he finally got up the nerve, taking the mic from Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra.
"Alright, I swear to you, I'm a little emotional," Sandler admitted, readying himself to play his original creation. "I'm gonna try not to get too…"
Strumming on the guitar, the Saturday Night Live alum crooned, "There simply is no better man than good old David Letterman / And no one gets Julia Roberts' face redder than a flirty David Letterman. He's leaving after 30 years, and you know he will be missed / If you like gap-toothed men in double-breasted suits, he's number one on your top ten list."
Sandler went on to make off-color jokes about Letterman's rival Jay Leno, his own mother, and CBS exec Les Moonves.
"There simply is no better man than our hero David Letterman / I can't thank you enough for all you've done / And I'm sure I ain't the only one," Sandler continued. "'Cause you paved the way for every late-night show / Both Jimmys should get on their knees and blow… you kisses, you kisses. No more interviewing Heidi Klum or Cheryl Tiegs / Now you're just the oldest dad at little league."
The veteran TV personality will indeed have more time to spend with 11-year-old son Harry and wife Regina Lasko once he wraps his 33-year run on late night.
Sandler geared up to send Letterman off with a bang, picking up the tempo to belt, "And when you say goodbye and take your final drive, in your Ferrari full of stolen office supplies / And we watch you go with eyes full of tears, I hope the cops pull you over and drag you back here for 30 more years! / 'Cause you're the king of comedy, our best friend on TV."
