Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen — Christopher Walken!

[Cheers and applause]

Christopher Walken: Thank you. Thanks so much. I’m glad to be back hosting “Saturday Night Live.” I miss this place. You know, in the movies, I never get a chance to do things like this. Sing, dance, do crazy make-em ups. Since I turned 39, I don’t go out much and I don’t stay up very late, and sometimes…

[ A crew member hands Christopher a microphone. The SNL Band strikes up a tune behind Walken. ] [singing]“Saturday Night
is the loneliest night
of the week.
‘Cause that’s the night
that my sweetie and I
used to dance cheek to cheek.
I don’t mind
Sunday night at all.
‘Cause that’s the night
friends come to call
and Monday to Friday’s a gas
and another, ‘nother week goes past.”

RACHEL DRATCH, ANA GASTEYER, CHERI O’TERI, AND MOLLY SHANNON ENTER and dance on either side of Christopher.

[singing]“Saturday Night
is the loneliest night
of the week –”

Oh, looks like I’ve got company.

[singing]“I sing the song that I sang
for the memories.
I usually seek
until I hear you knock at the door,
until you’re in my arms once more.
Saturday night’s
the loneliest night of the week.”

[ There’s an instrumental break in the music. Christopher and the ladies dance in sync. ] [singing]“Until I hear you at the door,
until you’re in my arms once more,
Saturday night’s
the loneliest night of the week!”

We’ve got a great show. Christina Aguilera’s here. We’ll be right back.

[singing]”Saturday night’s
the loneliest night of the week…”
