There's a lot less sex appeal but just as much fun in Jimmy Fallon's version of Robin Thicke's provocative hit "Blurred Lines."

The R&B singer and Late Night house band The Roots grabbed xylophones, shakers and a Casio keyboard to re-create the song as if it were being performed by class of precocious elementary school students.

Thicke's original song, featuring T.I. and Pharrell, has been criticized as being sexist, though Thicke dismissed the claims earlier this week.

"It's actually a feminist movement within itself. It's saying that women and men are equals as animals and as power," he said on NBC's Today. "It doesn't matter if you're a good girl or a bad girl; you can still have a good time."
