The Lyrics

If you haven't been watching "Jeopardy!" lately, there's been a guy named Ken Jennings, a software engineer from Salt Lake City, UT, who has amassed over a million dollars in a 29-day run. Previous to the 2003-2004 season, champions were forced to retire after five appearances, but this rule was revoked for the 2003-2004 season, and champions stay on until they lose.
Come and listen to my story 'bout a man named Ken
Software engineer, probably hasn't many friends
And then one day while watching my TV
He shows up on this show they call "Jeopardy!"
Quiz show, that is.
Alex Trebek.
Question the answers.

Well, the next thing you know ol' Ken's a millionaire
People often wonder if he's ever gonna get off of there
Well, they removed the limit, so it may not ever be
When he's ever gonna get off the show they call "Jeopardy!"
No more limit.
Stay as long as you want.

There may never be a day when they kiss ol' Ken goodbye
And if that day comes, probably no one will even cry
He'll probably be on there forever winning lots and lots of dough
And we'll never even know if he's ever gonna go
Keep on winning.
Piling up the cash.
Y'all stay tuned now, you hear?
