Mercedes Benz


by Janis Joplin
(A cappella)

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz
My friends all drive Porches, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a color TV
Dialing for dollars is trying to find me
I’ll wait for delivery each day ‘til three
So lord, won’t you buy me a color TV?

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town
I’m counting on you lord, so please don’t let me down
Prove that you love me and buy the next round
So Lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town?

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes-Benz?
