JANIS JOPLIN LYRICS
"Mercedes Benz"

Oh Lord, wonít 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, wonít you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

Oh Lord, wonít you buy me a color TV ?
Dialing For Dollars is trying to find me.
I wait for delivery each day until three,
So oh Lord, wonít you buy me a color TV ?

Oh Lord, wonít you buy me a night on the town ?
Iím counting on you, Lord, please donít let me down.
Prove that you love me and buy the next round,
Oh Lord, wonít you buy me a night on the town ?

Everybody!
Oh Lord, wonít 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 oh Lord, wonít you buy me a Mercedes Benz ?

Thatís it!
