Tonight Show is the only broadcast TV late-night show in originals this week, and Jimmy Fallon is bring back his Bernie Sanders impression.

In Monday night’s sketch, Fallon channels the Dems best-funded candidate in a crowded field that’s expected to hit 20 when Joe Biden announces this week. Fallon/Sanders is joined by Black Thought from The Roots, to rap “Old Town Hall,” to the tune of “Old Town Road.”

Fallon recently introduced his Beto O’Rourke and Pete Buttigieg impressions, among 2020’s new Dem hopefuls. But he has been fine tuning his Bernie Sanders since the Vermont senator ran against Hillary Clinton for the Dem nomination in the 2016 race.

“Bernie” begins:

I’m gonna talk to voters at the old town hall
I’m gonna tell ‘em we don’t need no wall
I’m gonna rant and rave about billionaires
Ain’t gonna take a break to comb my hair

I got money in the stacks
Forget your super PACs
Bernie bros in back
You would think this is a frat, now
Got a chance to see
Mayor Pete’s ID
We’re both born in ‘83
But in different centuries.
