The Lyrics

Ken Jennings----Jeopardy's longest playing player.Don't hate the player........**** that....I hate him.(j/k)
(Jeopardy music played by bells)

Ken is on the show again,
(Please no more)
Clearing all the subjects,
Getting dollars by the thousands.
Oh Ken, is Jeopardy your work?
(He's the best.)
Jeopardy's his billing address,
He'll go on another day too.

If you are smart, give Ken a chance,
After he beats you, then he'll start to dance.
The buzzer is there, for you there's no use.
But Ken should be charged with buzzer abuse.

Ken finished day 32,
(Cleared the board)
Now he broke a million,
And everyone is tired of him.
Oh Ken, engineering's your work,
(Now what's next)
Jeopardy's the place where he lives,
He's is going to wager more.

They had a win-rule for up to five days,
Now it is gone, and Ken is the craze.
Next is Price is Right, good luck Mr. Bob,
Then Wheel of Fortune, Pat Sajack is gone,

Ken is a genius at work,
(What a dork)
In the last round he bid something,
And he wrote some words to a girl.
Now Ken's paying Jeopardy's bills,
(More or less)
Think about the cash he's making,
And that he has been on Leno.

He's on your Tv, and now in the movies.
Straight from Utah, he thinks he's groovy.
The buzzer's useless to anyone else.
Unless you kill Ken and Alex as well.

So Ken!
(God, no more)
He could keep on going, like the Energizer Bunny, oh boy.
So Ken!
(What is next?)
Think about the stuff that you'll buy,
Charities are waiting.

Ken's still on that stupid show.
(Man, I'm bored)
Think about the people,
Why don't you call it a day tonight.
Ken, please just give it a rest.
(He's the best)
We all know that you are smart,
And we all recognize it.

Kenny's now going to far.
(God, no more)
Kenny is starting a war.
(Give us rest)
(The buzzer's there, for you there's no use.)
Ken, please just give us our board.
(But Ken should be charged with buzzer abuse)

Oh Ken.

Good parody, man, but wouldn't it be a scary thought if they fired Alex and hired Ken to host Jeop!'s 21st season? That could happen with all the money he's won. ***** on the parody.

I think Alex and Ken are gay lovers. They probably make out after the show.
