about

Chris Ward is a nerdcore rapper from Illinois. Since he first started his career in 2001, Chris has created an extremely loyal national following and released several original albums. On Twenty-Six and a Half, hear his cover of the Weird Al parody “I Lost on Jeopardy” from Al’s “‘Weird Al’ Yankovic In 3-D” album.

lyrics

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 Flemming gave the answers
Oh, but I couldn't get the questions right-ight-ight

I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh
I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh

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

I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh
I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh

[Spoken]
That's right Al -- you lost.
And let me tell you what you didn't win: a twenty set volume of the Encyclopedia International,
a case of Turtle Wax, and a years supply of Rice-A-Roni, the San Fransisco treat.
But that's not all, you also made yourself look like a jerk in front of millions of people.
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 to bright
Well, I sure hope I do better
Next weekend on the Price Is Right-ight-ight

I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh
I lost on Jeopardy, baby, ooh
I lost on Jeopardy, baby
