Motley Crue's "Girls, Girls, Girls" Lyrics Read By Alex Trebek On 'Jeopardy' Is So Weird & Here's What He Should Read Next
I am no trivia wizard, but even I have to admit that there's something truly beautiful about watching Jeopardy host Alex Trebek read the game show answers out loud to his guests. His delivery is dolphin smooth and perfectly consistent, no matter what the answer he's reading happens to be. Nothing could prove that more than his recent reading of an answer from the "Hard Rockers" category: Monday night's Jeopardy episode, which was part of the Teacher's Tournament, brought out Trebek's inner rockstar — and it was equal parts awkward and legendary.
The "question" that the contestants needed to guess correctly was "Who is Motley Crue?" and the answer was the lyrics to the band's tune "Girls, Girls, Girls." It's not exactly poetry (unless you consider '80s glam metal poetry, in which case I do not fault you in the slightest) but that didn't stop Trebek from reading the lyrics with an enthusiasm he typically reserves for quotes by Thomas Jefferson and Machiavelli. Here are the lyrics:
Girls, girls, girls... long legs and burgundy lips... Girls, girls, girls... dancing down the Sunset strip... Girls, girls, girls.
So yeah. Lots and lots of girls... girls... girls. And if you can't imagine what Trebek would sound like with these words unspooling from his mustached lips, well, just watch the video for yourself.
I love it. I have never loved anything more than it. And it got me thinking — what lyrics would be even more awkward for Trebek to read aloud? Here are just a few suggestions...
"Drunk in Love" by Beyonce
It doesn't exactly matter what song lyric he chooses from the tune (though the one above would be PRIME) because any part would be horrendously awkward to read aloud.
"Stupid Hoe" by Nicki Minaj
Would die happy if this were to happen. I can only imagine the enthusiasm he would use.
"Baby" by Justin Bieber
"And I was like, baby, baby, baby, noooo."
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Theme Song
If he can do the extreme finger motions, all the better.
"Bang, Bang" by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj
I mean, if the way he says "girls" is disturbing, imagine "bang, bang!" It might be too much for any of us to handle.
