The Lyrics

Answer: http://www.spaff.com/poesy/jennings.html
Question: Where is Robert Lund's recording of this parody?
Kenny Jennings
You're on my T-V
You're up there kicking
Butt on Jep-purr-dy
I know you think I just tuned in days ago
But I've sat here for every freaking show

Jennings, you'll never bore me
You're - Utah's coolest guy
Jennings, please spell it for me
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)

Kenny Jennings'
Rivals have troubles
See them cursing
When you get Daily Doubles
I try to play you from home
But I don't know stuff
I try phrasing like a question
It's too fetchin' tough

Jennings, your wad's arriving
Two - point-five million high
Jennings, that's lots of tithing
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)

You got ta (You got ta) You got ta
You got ta meet Brother Trebek!
You got us (You got us) You got us
Yelling Oh My
Yelling Oh My Heck!

[Contemplative instrumental break]

Jennings, you've made his-tor-ee
Wear - ing your mission tie
Spell this degree of glory:
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)
J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie
(J-E - O-P-A - R-D-Y-ee-yie)

LOL!!!!!!! HILARIOUS as usual, great job!

I ignored your pacing problem, because the song is that good. Keep on, spaff.com! :D

Jackie: Thanks again for your unwavering support.
Jonathan: Thanks for your generosity. May I ask you to elaborate on the problem?

Once again, Mighty Spaff, your sheer brilliance slaps the cuffs on my keyboard-hands and drags me to the 5-key three times in utter submission to your dominatrix-like parody-genius. Please sir, may I read another? ;-)
Arwen - September 25, 2004 - Report this comment
Funny stuff, Mr. Spafford. I kick myself daily for not seeking out and snatching up Mr. Jennings when I had the chance as a Utah resident. Dammit. 5s...
Claude Prez - September 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Hey Arwen, what a coincidence; I lick myself daily too...oh...never mind...Great stuff as usual Spaff

Fabulous job, Spaff!
nally - September 27, 2004 - Report this comment
This one was really good! I have been watching Jeopardy lately, so I know all about Ken monopolizing the championship. 5-5-5.

Thanx, Johngleberry & Holiday Rhodes & C4P & Sister Kicksass & nelly!

Johnny Divine: I wish I had a nickel for every time I'd been called a dominatrix. Now get back in there with the gimp.

Sister Evenstar: Don't worry - there are still plenty of other eligible bachelors in Utah. Mark Hacking, for example.
Mike - October 05, 2004 - Report this comment
The pacing was slightly off because J-E-O-P-A-R-D-Y is 8 letters and 867-5309 is obviously 7 digits, but because of how the '9' was sung in the original song, the extra letter does not detract from the parody at all. 5-5-5
Mr. X - October 05, 2004 - Report this comment
Mike: the number 7 has two syllables, hence the letters O and P are sung in place of it. J-E-OP-A-R-D-Y vs. 8-6-7-5-3-0-9. Got it?
Kendra - October 06, 2004 - Report this comment
I LOVE THIS SONG... I've BEEN WATCHING KEN SINCE THE BEGINNNING... THIS SONG ROCKS... LOL
Spaff.com - October 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanx, Mike, X, and Kendra!

Ah, the age-old characters-vs-syllables conundrum. Consider: "12,000" has only three syllables; "7,777" (a much smaller number) has thirteen. And HTTP has four syllables while WWW has nine. I don't get it either.
Paul Robinson - October 11, 2004 - Report this comment
Spaff - These folks should know by now you should always wear a conundrum when reading a "Spaff" parody. Folks, remember, "CAWSS" ( "CARE, be AWARE, and always WEAR a conundrum and practice "SAFE SPAFF"...)
Mr. X - October 12, 2004 - Report this comment
There's a whole buncha things I don't get either. Like, in your comment on October 2nd at 5:41 PM. The last person who commented before then was nally, not nelly. Look at his name carefully.

This song is absolutely hilarious! I've watched every episode of Jeopardy except for a few since Ken started winning... ("I've been here for every freakin show!") hehe... great song!
John Jenkins - December 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Very well done, Spaff. Who would have guessed that he would get tripped up for not knowing H&R Block?
Charlie Decker - December 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Very nice. Too bad you stole my idea!! Eh, yours is probably better anyway.

Thanx, P-Rob ("wear a conundrum" - heh heh) & ajcool & WI Ben & Johnkins & Sgt Decker (where's yours?)

Mr. X: Plaesa axcusa ma.

All: I don't know who's behind the inordinate number of votes on this, but it ain't me, babe. For the record.

Great one Spaff, almost as good as Nailing Charile's Angels, but not as good as you're verison of "It's not easy" but anywho I must give you fives!!!

OK, Matthias - from now on, everything's going to be recorded in a Kermit voice.
