Stephen Colbert doesn’t love you.

Just when we’re getting excited for a new era of Stephen Colbert’s comedy, a perfect vintage morsel pops up to remind us that he’s a bona fide star.

The Second City Network recently released a 21-year-old clip featuring Colbert with Jenna Jolovitz. They performed a song about a bland relationship, perfectly fitting for a failed first date or a long-term relationship hitting total indifference. The general refrain is, “If I loved you I’d sing you a love song, if I loved you I’d give you the moon / If I loved you I’d sing you a love song, but I don’t,” with different topics intermingled.

The clip is the latest in a string of video moments that continue to build anticipation for his Late Show takeover in the fall. Previously Colbert parodied Donald Trump’s presidential announcement, shredded Justice Scalia dissent on marriage equality, and defended Pluto from scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson. He’ll begin his official Late Show run Sept 8.
