  • Song Lyrics:
    Oh-oh-oh-oh

    I was there to match my intellect on national TV
    Against a plumber, oh, and an architect, both with a PhD
    I was tense, I was nervous, I guess it just wasn't my night
    Art Fleming gave the answers
    Oh, but I couldn't get the questions right, -ight, -ight

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

    Well, I knew I was in trouble now
    My hope of winning sank
    Oh, 'cause I got the Daily Double now
    And then my mind went blank
    I took Potpourri for one hundred
    And then my head started to spin
    Well, I'm givin' up, Don Pardo
    Just tell me now what I didn't win, yeah, yeah

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

    That's right, Al--You lost.
    And let me tell you what you didn't win:
    a twenty volume set of the Encyclopedia International,
    a case of Turtle Wax,
    and a year's supply of Rice-A-Roni, the San Francisco Treat.
    But that's not all.
    You also made yourself look like a jerk in front of millions of people.
    And you brought shame and disgrace to your family name for generations to come.
    You don't get to come back tomorrow.
    You don't even get a lousy copy of our home game.
    You're a complete loser!

    Don't know what I was thinkin' of
    I guess I just wasn't too bright
    Well, I sure hope I do better
    Next weekend on The Price Is Right, -ight, -ight

    I lost on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
    I lost on Jeopardy, baby (oooh)
    I lost on Jeopardy, baby
    (Sonic SBL)

    Should now be Ken Jennings song after winning 75 times on Jeopardy. Or better yet maybe Al should make an updated version of I Lost On Jeopardy all about Ken Jennings.

    Not just Art Fleming & Don Pardo, but Greg Kihn and Dr. Demento were in the video too :)
