Watch Samuel L. Jackson's "Boy Meets World" Poetry Slam



Samuel L. Jackson is a huge fan of ... "Boy Meets World?" 

Performing on Tuesday night's "Tonight Show," the "Captain America" star recited a slam poem about the classic '90s sitcom.

After puffing on a cigarette, the actor delivered a dramatic homage to the TGIF series.

"Boy meets world. Boy greets world. Hello, world! I am Cory Matthews: short and average, head full of curls. The year: 1993. We see two boys who lack both brains and brawn: Cory Matthews and Hunter, or Hunter comma Shawn. Hair parted down the middle, jacket made of leather, alas one man's trailer trash is another man's treasure. Boy meets world. Boy meets girl. Topanga, Topanga, Topanga, beats the heart of Cory, a story as old as time. Daughter of hippies, the name of a gypsy. 'Topanga!'"

We won't ruin the rest of the poem -- just watch the video above!
