The Lyrics

If you've been watching "Jeopardy!" lately and wonder where Ken Jennings is, well, the show's on summer break and Ken won't return until the 2004-2005 season begins on September 6. In the meantime, they're showing reruns of all the tournaments and special shows they ran during the 2003-2004 season.
Summer has come and "Jeopardy!"'s in reruns
Ken Jennings won't come back until September 6
Well, it don't really matter to me
I can't stand those reruns of "Jeopardy!"

You see, you don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")

Somewhere, somehow, somebody wonders where the heck ol' Ken is
He ain't gonna come back to the show till September
Honey, it don't make no difference to me
Baby, when all you've got are reruns of "Jeopardy!"

You see, you don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")
Oh, baby, you don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")

Baby, you just have to remember
Ken's gonna come back some time in September
Right now, it's just reruns you see
When you turn on the tube to watch "Jeopardy!"

(instrumental break)

Somewhere, somehow, somebody wonders where the heck ol' Ken is
He ain't gonna come back to the show till September
Honey, it don't really matter to me
There's just only reruns of "Jeopardy!"

You see, you don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")
Oh, you don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")
You don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!"
(Don't have to watch Ken on "Jeopardy!")
