lyrics

You want music you can build a house on,
and I want to be King of the World.
You want licks that you can eat for breakfast,
and I just want to win over girls.

So Jimmy, Jimmy what'chu doin?
Jimmy, Jimmy what'chu doin?
Put me on your show,
pu-put me on your show.
Jimmy, Jimmy what'chu doin?
Jimmy, Jimmy, what'chu doin?
Can I be you?
Can I be you?

You want stars with looks and lots of talent
and I want to be thin but always eat.
You want me to dance like Jimmy Fallon,
but I just want to go out and drink.

(trombone/trumpet interlude)

(shimmy break)

You, and I, and you, and I
dancing, and singing, together, on your show.
Come on, Jimmy!

So Jimmy, Jimmy, what'chu doin?
Jimmy, Jimmy, what'chu doin?
Have you any wool?
Ha-have you any wool?
Jimmy, Jimmy, what'chu doin?
Jimmy, Jimmy, what'chu doin?

Jimmy and the Roots, Ji-Jimmy and the Roots.

(brass outro)
