Colbert's last song

Colbert's finale was virtually perfect, wasn't it? It can be so hard to stick the landing on a last episode but Team Colbert got it right. See it for yourself below

I was surprised to learn about the heritage of the song used for the musical finale. While it was playing, I thought I recognized it as a Muppet song. Turns out its a World War II era hit, that relates to boys going off to war. The lyrics are actually a promise to meet again in heaven, if things don't work out
We'll meet again, Don't know where,don't know when, But I know we'll meet again, some sunny day. Keep smiling through, Just like you always do,T ill the blue skies drive the dark clouds, far away. 
With Colbert defeating death in the episodes last segment, and being carried of into eternity by Santa Claus, Alec Trebek, and Unicorn Lincoln, that sort of makes sense...
