The Lyrics

And the answer is: "He won't stop winning on Jeopardy." (The buzzer rings) Who is Ken Jennings? Correct.
Oh-oh-oh-oh

I was there to match my intellect on national TV
The same time they, oh, lifted their limit of only five straight wins
Was it rigged? I don't think so, I guess it just had been my night
Trebek, he gave the answers
Oh, and I always got the questions right, -ight, -ight

I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)

Well, I've been on one whole season now
Keep going to the bank
Oh, when I got the Daily Double now
I had a winning streak
I took Potpourri for one hundred
And then I had more dough to win
Well, I'm conceited now, Announcer
Just tell me now what I'm gonna win, yeah, yeah

I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)

That's right, Ken--You won! And let me tell you what you're gonna win:
an XBox with a game of your choice; XBox by Sony International
A DVD of Mad Max
And a two-year's supply of Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco Treat
But that's not all
You'll also win yourself the new "The Jerk" DVD, millions of dollars,
You'll win games and accessories for your XBox, and three packs of bubble gum
You will get to come back tomorrow
You get sixty-seven lousy copies of our home game
You're a complete cheater!

Don't know much 'bout my winning streak
I guess I just was way too bright
Well, I sure hope I win enough
To buy the Jeopardy show rights, -ights, -ights

I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
I won on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
I won on Jeopardy, baby

(Ken gets a ride to the bank. Greg Kihn is driving; his bride, and Weird Al are also in the car.)

**Weird Al**
"Ken, you really need to let somebody else get at chance at winning Jeopardy. You've been on the show for nearly a whole season! You might as well host the danged show!"

**Ken**
"You know, you're right...."

**Greg Kihn**
"You have enough money to buy the rights to the show from Merv Griffin." (Laughs hysterically)

**Bride**
"Hey Greg, how long have we been in this smelly old car?"

**Greg**
"Uhhh.... almost twenty years."

**Everybody**
"Peee-yeeeeewwwwww!!!!"

Good job on the parody, but including a made-up script about Ken Jennings with Weird Al, Greg Kiln, & a bride was not a good idea. The last part of the script grossed me out.

Nice try, but I think you pulled a little more out of the original besides the melody.
