The Lyrics

On NOV.30th 2004, Will Be A Night We Never Forget. KEN JENNINGS LOST.
Ken, You Were On The Show Long Enough
We Have Found A New Game Show Legend
With Some Friends I Just Called
I'll Never Be Angry
And You, My Friend, You'll See
Alex Has A Friend In You
(Alex Has A Friend In You)

Ken, You Were Always Beating The Best
You Feel Like You Came Out Of Nowhere
If You Ever Look Behind
You Won't Know What To Find
Jeopardy! Is The #1 Game Show
You Did A Great Job, Way To Go
(You Did A Great Job, Way To Go)

I Used To Watch Monopoly
Now It's The Price Is Right
I Used To Watch Monopoly
Now It's The Price Is Right
Ken, Most People Got Tired Of You
I Listen To What They Say
They Won't See You Anymore
We Just Don't Like You Anymore
I'm Sure You Won't Be On Again
If They Had A Player Like Ken
(A Player) Like Ken
(Like Ken) Like Ken

All those capital letters are so annoying that I can't get through any of your parodies to see if they're any good, and I don't think that I'm alone in my opinion. Why do you do it? Do you like doing things the wrong way? How does everyone else feel?
Melanie Lee - December 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Sorry, Hound Dogs, but your pacing is off in so many places it interferes with the humor. First of all, use rhymes where the original did. Second, make sure the rhythm and accentuation of the words you choose match the original. For example, "We have found a new game show legend" doesn't fall the same way as "We both found what we are looking for". Third, like Capital Punishment said, Don't Capitalize Every Word. Using "Ben" for "Ken" was a great idea, but the execution is lacking. Better luck next time. 2-2-2.

Jessy, I was able to adjust the pacing as I went through your parody, and by holding some syllables longer on certain beats in the music, your parody works find just the way it is, so I decided it deserves a 5 for pacing. And you already know, Jessy, that I like how you Capitalize Each Word, Because That Is Your Personal Artistic Trademark, Just Like The Poet e.e. cummings Who Never Used Any Capital Letters At All. And you also know, Jessy, that I like how your parodies' lines don't always rhyme to each other and how the meaning of a line can appear suddenly unrelated from the meaning of the line just before it - - - I don't care what other people think, Jessy, I still enjoy your parodies because they have that Zen-like quality you have heard me talk about many times before. 5-5-5, and please don't change your writing style - - - it's unconventional and I love how it disturbs some people and forces them to momentarily give up their preconceived notions.

Ooops, two typos in my previous comment: "your parody works find" should be "your parody works fine", and, "suddenly unrelated from the meaning" should be "suddenly unrelated to the meaning".

You know, Johnny D has a point. I rather like this. 444.

Pacing is pretty off. Sorry.
