The Lyrics

Look,
If you have one dream,
To become a top fifty quizzer
To beat every team that's ever quizzed
In one quiz match
Would you study for it?
Or just skip it? Yo

Gets out of the Chevy
Needs sleep
Brain is heavy
He thought about practicing already
Time is running
His team's not having practice, does not look right
As he finds out, they were playing games all night
What a ghost town
He sat down, don't know how
Opens his mouth, all the answers come flying out
He's tired down, yet his brain is ready now
In practice round, winds up quizzing out
Heads off to the quiz match – Look who's here, quiz coach
And, look he's so happy, he quizzed out so fast
But he won't give up practicing, he stopped his lazy studying
Don't seem so bad to me, he hopes he's not bad
Or real' slow like first-time rookies,
He don't need all those distractions while memorizing passages
That's how it'll go down, he'll get so fanatic-y.
It better get in his head fast and make sure it lasts

CHORUS:
You better quiz yourself in your quiz book
You know that you wanna go to the top before you're too old
Do you really want this real' bad? Is it yes or no?
It's too soon to be studying, but when is the right time?
You better quiz yourself in the book that you're studying
In quizzing, haven't read it yet, I know
You're running out of shots to the top, here's your chance to go
This chance may happen only once in your lifetime
You gotta

His scores are great even though his whole team's is weak'ning
The team has got him pleading – "Study please?"
As he moves forward- closer to the award
The role of the team is soon ignored, individual's more important
Team only causes problems, quiz coach don't got them
They're scattered all over, he calls them from all over
Goes to go show his team his top-fifty award, "Way to go, quizzer!"
He knows his team's placing low, so don't bother
He goes home and prays to God the Father
"Lord," he prays, "I know the team can go farther."
"But they seem like they don't want to bother."
And he moves on and reads his quizzing notes until he knows them cold and tells others
So his teammates are told to be bold and begin to try harder
So the slow become fast and the dumb becomes smarter

CHORUS:
You better quiz yourself in your quiz book
You know that you wanna go to the top before you're too old
Do you really want this real' bad? Is it yes or no?
It's too soon to be studying, but when is the right time?
You better quiz yourself in the book that you're studying
In quizzing, haven't read it yet, I know
You're running out of shots to the top, here's your chance to go
This chance may happen only once in your lifetime
You gotta

No more games, I've been changed, you call that strange
That I carefully study every single page
I've been quizzing since the beginning, my position changed
I used to be subbing at the beginner stage
But I kept trying and studying for next season
You better believe that's for a good reason
All the pride inside amplified by the fact
That I want bad a score of 6-6-5
But all of my plans collide with team's slacking
Like to win all of it "cause I want pride and you can't go buy those trophies
And be on the movie, there's no good excuses, this is go time
And these questions are so hard, and getting even harder
Tryin' to give quizmasters good answers, plus
Errors got ya caught up between and error outs and bein' a slower buzzer
Babe, I really wanna scream because it's too much for me
To stay at my high spot, and make sure I don't flop
I've got to be to the point I can't suffer any loss
I formulated a plot for ending up on the top
Winning is the one-and-only option, failure's not
Team, I love you, but you guys got to know
You cannot hold me back when I am hot
So here I go, this is my shot
Brain fail me not cuz this may be the last opportunity that I got

CHORUS:
You better quiz yourself in your quiz book
You know that you wanna go to the top before you're too old
Do you really want this real' bad? Is it yes or no?
It's too soon to be studying, but when is the right time?
You better quiz yourself in the book that you're studying
In quizzing, haven't read it yet, I know
You're running out of shots to the top, here's your chance to go
This chance may happen only once in your lifetime
You gotta quiz!

You can quiz on anything you set your mind to, man
