John Legend Adds Hilarious Lyrics to ‘Downton Abbey’ Theme Song (Video)

Remix starts with a diversity remark, ends in Lady Edith diss

“Downton Abbey” had one of the better theme songs on television, just with one glaring omission: lyrics.

John Legend took care of that Monday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” when the Grammy winner added words to the tune, one night after the series wrapped up on U.S. airwaves.

“Everyone we know is very white/We don’t have one black friend,” the funny remix began.

Later, Legend opines that the Dowager Countess of Grantham — played by Maggie Smith — “needs to get laid.”

The best lyric, however, may have been this one at the very end: “Edith is such a loser, why won’t she just die?”
