The Lyrics

I won on Jeopardy!...
I won on Jeopardy!...

Now look at that Mormon, that's the way you do it
You win on that quiz show on the TV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin' on Jeopardy!
Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Lemme tell ya that guy ain't dumb
Maybe get a cramp using that little trigger
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

He's just hit another Daily Double!
Run another category
His opponents know they are in trouble
And he'll win again on Jeopardy!

See the little Mormon and how quick he is to buzz in
Yeah buddy, that's just not fair
That little Mormon has won another game
That little Mormon he's a millionaire

He's just hit another Daily Double!
Run another category
His opponents know they are in trouble
And he'll win again on Jeopardy!

I can't believe he's gotten this far
I can't believe how much he's won
Look at that Mormon, he's shaking his head at the camera
Man, he's sure having fun
And he's up there, what's that? The crowd's applauding
Another win in his record winning streak
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Get your money for nothin', win on Jeopardy!

He's just hit another Daily Double!
Run another category
His opponents know they are in trouble
And he'll win again on Jeopardy!, lord

Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
You win on that quiz show on the TV
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothin', win on Jeopardy!
Money for nothin' on Jeopardy!

I won on, I won on, I won on Jeopardy!
I won on, I won on, I won on Jeopardy!

Well done, and I love your name!

The pacing was a little off, and who gives a damn! Really, really, really funny makes up for it! Let's see, I'll take AMIRIGHTERS for $200. The answer: "This parodist appears to have a big future ahead of her. "Who is 'Hell On High Heels'?"

Thank you, Michael and Ashkicksass. :) And I'm pleased you like the name - I've always thought it does a good job combining my attitude with my boot collection. I'm working on a few more, and will post them once they are done :)

Nice job. I'm getting tired of Ken Jennings myself. (BTW, did you see the back cover fold-in on the latest issue of MAD Magazine?)
Hell On High Heels - October 28, 2004 - Report this comment
I have to admit (not that it's much of a shock) that I'm a huge Ken Jennings fan. I'm hoping a certain rumor isn't true at all... I haven't really read MAD for years, since I didn't see the latest fold-in. What is it?

Great job on the parody! How about looking at my parody "I Lost On Jeopardy Again" along with my other parodies?
