Country music star Chris Stapleton and actor Chris Pratt took on Dirty Dancing's “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.” Enjoy their side-splitting duet right here!

Country music phenom Chris Stapleton and actor Chris Pratt treated the Jimmy Kimmel Live! viewers to a special musical collaboration. Guest host Pratt had Guillermo spin “The Wheel of Cheesy Duets” and it landed on very interesting song selection— “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” from the classic film Dirty Dancing. 

Watch the stars and real-life friends pour themselves into this familiar tune! (Wait for the infamous lift at the end…)

Oh man, that was incredibly entertaining. The 1987 tune was orignally recorded by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes, and used as the theme song for the film Dirty Dancing, which stared actors actors Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. The romantic tune won an Academy Award for “Best Original Song”, a Golden Globe Award for “Best Original Song”, and a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

This humorous skit isn’t the first time the celebrities have sang together, a few months back Chris Pratt joined Chris Stapleton onstage at the Kentucky native’s Nashville concert for a rendition of “Tennessee Whiskey.” In May, Stapleton sent Pratt a tape of his album From A Room: Volume 1, along with a Walkman to listen to the album. This gift might sound rather meaningless, but it’s actually quite unique. In the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, Chris Pratt’s character enjoys using a Walkman to listen to a special mixtape made by his deceased mother.

Besides Chris Stapleton, Pratt enjoys listening to other country artists such as Eric Church and Tim McGraw. In fact, the actor claims that Church’s music encouraged him to get into character while filming the latest installment of the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World.

We hope Stapleton and Pratt continue collaborating together— it’s comedic gold. In case you were wondering, here are the song’s complete lyrics. This situation becomes even funnier when you follow along with all the words.

“(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” Lyrics 

Now I’ve had the time of my life
No I never felt like this before
Yes I swear it’s the truth
and I owe it all to you
‘Cause I’ve had the time of my life
and I owe it all to you
I’ve been waiting for so long
Now I’ve finally found someone
To stand by me
We saw the writing on the wall
As we felt this magical fantasy
Now with passion in our eyes
There’s no way we could disguise it secretly
So we take each other’s hand
‘Cause we seem to understand the urgency
Just remember
You’re the one thing
I can’t get enough of
So I’ll tell you something
This could be love because
I’ve had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before
Yes I swear it’s the truth
and I owe it all to you
With my body and soul
I want you more than you’ll ever know
So we’ll just let it go
Don’t be afraid to lose control
Yes I know what’s on your mind
When you say:
“Stay with me tonight.”
Just remember
You’re the one thing
I can’t get enough of
So I’ll tell you something
This could be love because
‘Cause I had the time of my life
No I’ve never felt this way before
Yes I swear it’s the truth
and I owe it all to you
‘Cause I’ve had the time of my life
and I’ve searched through every open door
Till I found the truth
and I owe it all to you
Now I’ve had the time of my life
No I never felt this way before
Yes I swear it’s the truth
and I owe it all to you
‘Cause I’ve had the time of my life
No I’ve never felt this way before
Yes I swear it’s the truth
and I owe it all to you
‘Cause I had the time of my life
and I’ve searched through every open door
Till I’ve found the truth
and I owe it all to you
