The Lyrics

For three years in a row, I have won a competition on campus known as the History FaceOff. Two of those years, I teamed up with Dr. Melissa Ann Murry Eaton and Mark Durst, along with one newcomer.
I won the, I won the FaceOff
I won the, I won the FaceOff
I won the, I won the FaceOff
I won the, I won the FaceOff!

Now look at them history buffs, that's the way you do it
You win the history competition on the campus
That ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Money for nothing, and the gift card's free

Now that ain't workin', that's the way you do it
Let me tell you, them guys ain't dumb
Maybe get a blister on the palm of your hand
Maybe get a blister on your thumb

They just won another qualifier
And are headed to the title match
Their opponents know they are in trouble
And they'll win the FaceOff once again!

See all those nerds and how sharp they are in history
Yeah, buddy, that just ain't fair
Mondak and Company have won another game!
Mondak and Company are undefeated!

They just won another qualifier
And are headed to the title match
Their opponents know they are in trouble
And they'll the FaceOff once again!

They just won another qualifier
And are headed to the title match
Their opponents know they are in trouble
And they'll win the FaceOff once again!

I can't believe Mondak is undefeated
I can't believe how he prepeared
Look at that Catholic, he's thrown up his arms to the heavens
Man, he's sure having fun
And he's up there. What's that? The crowd is cheering
Another winning year for Mondak's team
Oh, now, that ain't workin'. That's the way you do it
Get your money for nothing, and the gift card's free

They just won another qualifier
And are headed for the title match
Their opponents know they are in trouble
And they'll win the FaceOff once again, lord

Now, that ain't workin'. That's the way you do it.
You win the history competition on the campus.
That ain't workin'! That's the way you do it
Money for nothing, and the gift card's free

Money for nothing, and the gift card's free
Money for nothing, and the gift card's free

Money for nothing, g-g-g-g-gift card's free
Money for nothing, and the gift card's free

Money for nothing, and the gift card's free
Money for nothing, and the gift card's free

Look at that, look at that

I won the, I won the, I won the FaceOff
Money for nothing
I won the, I won the, I won the FaceOff

I won the, I won the, I won the FaceOff
I won the, I won the, I won the FaceOff

Easy, easy money for nothing
Easy, easy gift card's free

Easy, easy money for nothing
Easy, easy gift card's free

That ain't workin'!
