The Lyrics

The game always seems so easy
When it’s someone else who plays
I dream about getting on there
But hope I don’t make mistakes
Just can’t wait to reveal each clue
And clear off the big game board
Do do do do do do do do
What more is you lookin' for?

I want to be
On Jeopardy!
Don’t think I’ve ever
Seen gameshows better
On my TV
From Ancient History to Today
The Amazon to Zimbabwe
Can’t be devotin'
Full time to gloatin’
On Jeopardy!

The most recent champ is happy
As off through the clues they roll
The new challengers ain't happy
They sad 'cause they buzzed in slow
But new challenger is lucky
They in for a twist of fate
When the final question’s Hungary
Guess who’s gonna know too late
Oh no!

I want to be
On Jeopardy!
I’m not a genius
Just read Oedipus
Sampled what cultures love to cook
Read every Pritzker winning book
Don’t want no troubles
With Daily Doubles
On Jeopardy! (On Jeopardy!)
On Jeopardy! (On Jeopardy!)

Brushed up on Theatre
Bible and Shakespeare
Presidencies (Presidency-y-y-ies)
People from surgeons to valets
They get the urge 'n' want to play
I just can’t take it
Can’t wait to make it
On Jeopardy!

The most wins is Ken
Brad grabbed the most cash
Amy’s winning streak
Stopped with Bangladesh
And James was all in
For thirty eight wins
Alex is the greatest host
Mattea can pay
Her loans back today
Collins twenty wins
Thirteen Austin slayed
Matt Amodio
Ran a rodeo
With all those facts they know!

Yeah, I want to be (On Jeopardy!)
I want to be (On Jeopardy!)
When every evening
Those notes start ringing
It's music to me (it's music to me)
What’s Fortune got? You buy vowels
I’ll risk it all on Daily Doubles
Share intro stories
Run categories
On Jeopardy!
Pounce on pop culture
Just like a vulture
On Jeopardy!
Each little clue here
Shows something new here
That's why it's harder
Folks are much smarter
Want to get lucky
Win the most money
On Jeopardy!
