The Lyrics

This is inspired by my actual Jeopardy tryout in Cleveland in July 2005. Except that I got questions right, though I still didn't pass.
I was there
To try out for a game
In Cleveland, Ohio
To win cash
Or maybe scholarships
For random stuff I know

I got lost
In the subway
I couldn't find the hotel
Got a map
Found the building
With 80 other people, as well

Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh

The big doors
Opened at 9 a.m.
I found an empty chair
With a pen
That said Jeopardy
And the test questionnaire

We warmed up
With some questions
And watched a cool DVD
Test begun
Johnny Gilbert
Read all the questions, 1 to 50

Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh

[interlude]

When they announced
Who would move on
My name they did not call
I tell friends
I missed by one
But I'm pretty sure I missed them all

Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
Testing for Jeopardy, baby
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
Can't get on Jeopardy, baby,
Ooooh-ooh-oooooh
No chance on Jeopardy
