James Taylor Performs “Carolina (or Anywhere Else) in My Mind”

Published on May 20, 2020

James Taylor (Jimmy Fallon) gives his song “Carolina in My Mind” a quarantine twist. Full lyrics below:

In my mind, I’m goin’ to Carolina
Or any place that’s outside
Really anywhere that’s outside
Any ol’ place I don’t reside
Would pretty much be fine
Goin’, anywhere but my house in my mind
I’m sure there’s a silver sun
but I’m stuck inside and I can’t see one
I just watch my French bread rise
And I’m starting over with season one of Ozark – Yes I’m
Goin’ literally anywhere else in my mind
In my mind I’m goin’ to Benihana
Just to see a shrimp fly
Just to see some rice fry
Just to remember what mouths look like
Would sure feel pretty nice
So I’m going to Benihana in my mind
In my mind I’m goin’ to the Home Depot
I don’t need tools or house plants
Just wanna smell humans and wear pants
Find that cashier Michael
Just to hear him compare twine 
Yes, I’m goin’ to the Home Depot in my mind
With a motherload of puzzles layin’ around me
And a pair of 20-pound weights I won’t use
Yes it feels like life could go on like this forever
But just remember… There are
No travel restrictions in our minds
So in our minds we’re goin’ to Carolina
Six feet don’t count in your mind
Gonna shake hands and hug real tight
And before
we know it it’ll be all right
And we’ll leave this all behind
Won’t have to go to Carolina in our minds
Won’t have to go to Carolina in… our minds.

    Sometimes when I get lonely, I like to grab a fistful of baby carrots and jam them into the depths of my anus.

    You just gave me a reason not to be lonely anymore. This was beautiful.

    I freaking love Jimmy Fallon so much. This dude is so talented. My dad used to do some stand up. He didn’t get too far with it but he still thinks he’s funny. He’s been talking about meeting Jimmy for a few years now. We love you #jimmyfallon
