On The Tonight Show, in honor of New York City’s annual Fleet Week, Darius Rucker and Jimmy Fallon remade the Hootie & the Blowfish hit, “Only Wanna Be with You.”

It was a special occasion, as the audience was filled with men and women in uniform in town for New York’s 30th Fleet Week. Fallon and Rucker wanted to honor them and show their support.

The two parodied the original with a version titled “Only Wanna Thank the Troops,” in which Fallon and Rucker sang, “Army, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Marines, here’s to the Navy for protecting all our seas. You serve with bravery, you serve with style, you serve with six-pack abs, I can barely run a mile. Well, we owe it all to you. I only wanna thank the troops.”

Enjoying their moment, the all-military Fleet Week audience stood up, danced, and laughed to such lyrics as, “You fight for freedom all across the land. I hope while you are here you have a one-night stand. Let loose in New York and make it great. Hope when your captain pukes you get it all on tape. Just don’t post it on YouTube. I only wanna thank the troops.”
