The Lyrics

Ken Jennings won 74 games and over $2.5 million on "Jeopardy!" Sadly, he choked in the "Ultimate Tournament of Champions" and gave up the crown of "Highest-Paid Game Show Contestant Ever" to Brad Rutter. Still, Brad didn't have a streak like Ken. So Mr. Jennings, this one's for you!
(Kenny Jennings...Kenny Jennings)

When Ken Jennings tried out for "Jeopardy!" with all the other geeks
He had no idea he'd have to stay for close to twenty weeks
There is no one any greater
Getting...answers first and giving questions later
Because he's...Kenny Jennings
The new King of Jeopardy! (King of Jeopardy!)

Well, his button finger's swift and he always gets the answer right
By the first commercial break, he has won every game outright
Now ev'ry lady wants to be his doll, though
He looks like a relative of Waldo
But, no, he's...Kenny Jennings
The new King of Jeopardy! (King of Jeopardy!)

(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny (oh, yes, he's Kenny Jennings)
Better watch out, nerds, for this super-nerd will blow you away

Well, Merv Griffin isn't dead but, if he was, he would turn in his grave
(Merv would turn in his grave)
Just for selling off the show that Ken has made into the latest crave
(Ken made it the latest crave)
The ratings have gone of the scale
Because he...makes the other challengers look pale
Because he's...Kenny Jennings
The new King of Jeopardy! (King of Jeopardy!)

Well, some people can't believe that I guy like him can be so smart
(Boo-doo-wop, doo-wop bop doo-wop)
Like he took an encyclopedia and can recite each word by heart
(Boo-doo-wop, doo-wop bop doo-wop)
Some purists shiver at what he has done
Because it...kinda reminds them of Twenty-One
Because he's...Kenny Jennings
The new King of Jeopardy! (King of Jeopardy!)

(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny (oh, yes, he's Kenny Jennings)
Better watch out, nerds, for this super-nerd will blow you away

"Press Your Luck" had Bill Larson
"Tic Tac Dough"'s Thom McGee
But not even Richard Hatch
Can be as dominant as he

He was finally defeated at appearance number seven-five
(They killed Kenny! They killed Ken!)
But for years he'll be known as the greatest game show player alive
(Yeah for Kenny! Yeah for Ken!)
But now contestants are getting quite vexed
Because he's...trying out for "Wheel of Fortune" next
Because he's...Kenny Jennings
The new King of Jeopardy! (King of Jeopardy!)

(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny, Kenny Jennings
(Oh, yeah, he's...)
Kenny, Kenny Jennings
Yes, he's Kenny (oh, yes, he's Kenny Jennings)
Better watch out, nerds, for this super-nerd will blow you away
(Watch out, nerds; he'll blow you away!)
Better watch out, nerds, for this super-nerd will blow you away
(Watch out, nerds; he'll blow you away!)
Better watch out, nerds...
For this super-nerd will blow you away

(Jeopardy theme music)
I actually DID record this one... though I had to jury rig an "a capella" version since I could find a karaoke version. If you're up to hearing a snippet (and don't say I didn't warn you), head to The Sick, Sad World of Chris Wolvie.
