mercedes benz lyrics – janis joplin

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 ?

oh lord, won’t 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, 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, please don’t let me down.
prove that you love me and buy the next round,
oh lord, won’t you buy me a night on the town ?

everybody!
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 oh lord, won’t you buy me a mercedes benz ?

that’s it!
