Jimmy Fallon scored a touchdown of his own Super Bowl night with an amazing rendition of Bob Dylan’s iconic ’60s ballad “The Times They Are A Changin’.” He not only impersonated the singer, but updated the lyrics to send a message to Donald Trump.

In the opening refrain he sang:

Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that our country don’t feel like our home
And that silence speaks louder than those who condone
If a tweet to you is worth favin’
Then lift up your voices and put down your phones
For the times, they are a-changin’

He also tackled the #MeToo movement, kneeling NFL players and fake news.

Another refrain went like this:

Come journalists, writers who report the facts,
And brandish your pen to fend off his attacks.
Look past what he says and look at how he acts,
The fire and fury is raging.
For his words can hurt, but your words can fight back

Fallon was in Minneapolis for the game and also interviewed the cast of “This Is Us,” which debuted its first episode after the game.

The talk show host also talked up Justin Timblerlake about his performance and that Prince tribute.

Fallon’s musical tributes have been hilarious and pointed.

In December, he impersonated Bruce Springsteen to sing “Robert Mueller’s Comin’ to Town,” based on the tune “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

Before that, he did Springsteen, again, to sing about “Bridgegate,” the New Jersey scandal that tarnished Gov. Chris Christie. On that one, Springsteen made a surprise appearance.

Check out the performance below and the lyrics below that. Sing along!

Come gather round people wherever you roam
And admit that our country don’t feel like our home
And that silence speaks louder than those who condone
If a tweet to you is worth favin’
Then lift up your voices and put down your phones
For the times, they are a-changin’

Come women and men who hashtag #MeToo
And believe me when I say that we believe you
For weak is the man who calls truth “fake news”
Time’s up, our silence we’re breaking
And even though Mel Gibson was in Daddy’s Home 2
Well, the times, they are a-changin’

Come athletes with platforms throughout the land
Who by taking a knee are taking a stand
And before you shout out that they should be banned
Listen to what they are saying
Perhaps they’d stand up if you reached out your hand
Well, the times they are a-changing

Come journalists, writers who report the facts
And brandish your pen to fend off his attacks
Look past what he says and look at how he acts
The fire and fury is raging
For his words can hurt, but your words can fight back
New York Times, they aren’t a-failin’

Come leaders who bully like Internet trolls
We’ll curse you with four-letter words “love” and “hope”
For we will go high even when you go low
The order is re-arranging
For you have the power, but we have the vote
The times, they are a-changin’
