The Lyrics

Somebody once said,
"Bonuses aren't everthing
you have to buzz in once or twice"
I was looking kind of dumb with my buzzer by my thumb
Cause I haven't buzzed in even once yet
But then my buzzes start comin'
And they don't stop comin'
Helped get team bonus, which made me realize something
Buzzing in makes quizzing a whole lot of fun
Makes you look smart even though your brain is dumb
So much to quiz on, so little time
But I'm thinking I'm gonna do just fine
You won't go far on bonuses though
You can't answer "less your buzzer light glows

Buzz in - answer 3 right - get yourself a quiz out
Buzz in - with 3 teammates - help them get team bonus
It's good if your buzzer light glows
But only buzz in on the questions you know

Buzzing is cool, so your buzzing gets crazy
Hope during your studies you've aren't too lazy
But what the quizmaster says makes the differ
According to the hole in his quizbook's picture
But I see my coach's patience is getting pretty thin
My teammates are annoyed so I better buzz in
Quizzing like that - but practice is a bore
But become a Top 50 quizzer is its own reward

Buzz in - answer 3 right - get yourself a quiz out
Buzz in - with 3 teammates - help them get team bonus
It's good if your buzzer light glows
But only buzz in on the questions you know

Buzz in - answer 3 right - get yourself a quiz out
Buzz in - with 3 teammates - help them get team bonus
It's good if your buzzer light glows
But only you can buzz...

Some quizzer contested, "He buzzed to block team bonus" and the quizmaster asked for a rebuddal
I said, "Yep, that's a concept, you could look at it that way, but I buzzed in only because it was key"
Well, my buzzes they keep comin'
And they don't stop stop comin'
Helped get team bonus, which made me realize something
Buzzing in makes quizzing a whole lot of fun
Makes you look smart even though your brain is dumb
So much to quiz on, so little time
But I'm thinking I'm gonna do just fine
You can't answer "less your buzzer light glows (GLOW!)
Prove everyone the material you know

Buzz in - answer 3 right - get yourself a quiz out
Buzz in - with 3 teammates - help them get team bonus
It's good if your buzzer light glows
But only buzz in on the questions you know
It's good if your buzzer light glows
But only buzz in on the questions you know

Uhmmm...the Monkees never did "All Star"; they did "I'm A Believer," which Smash Mouth later covered. Oh well. Nice job anyways.
