Mercedes Benz Lyrics

I saw this on a web page a while ago, and since we all know original ideas suck, I will use this one. Let me explain the concept. "Mercedez Benz" is one of Janis Joplin's most memorable songs. Very short, extremely simple. I'm sure it was originally meant to be a fun little filler track, but it became one of her most beloved songs. The lyrics go as such:

 

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 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 Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?

 

That’s it!

 

The idea is that it's such a simple song structure, you can just add verses you make up yourself. The site I went to just had hundreds of surfer posted additional lyrics. Remember, all four lines must rhyme and must begin with "Oh Lord, won’t you buy me..." and end with "So Lord (or 'Oh Lord"), won’t you buy me ." And try to keep it similiar meter. Here goes mine.

 

Oh lord, won't you buy me, a new network card?

The one I got's busted, damaged and marred,

I've tried hard to fix it, I've tried real hard,

So Lord, won’t you buy me a new network card?

 

Lame, I kow, but that's the idea.

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a good chinese whore

I sure like those asians, and could really use more

There's just somethin' great about oriental backdoor

So, Lord, won't you buy me a good chinese whore

 

Heh...well, I thought it was amusing...

 

Okok, how 'bout this?

 

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a nice brand new car

Since I wrecked my last one, I can't go very far

C'mon, now, I just wanna go to the bar

So, Lord, won't you buy me a nice brand new car

Oh lord won't you buy me a 48" TV

My bro-in-law's got one and its getting to me

I know that it's bigger than my eye can see

But lord won't you buy me a 48" TV

 

Oh lord won't you buy me some Dolby Surround

Shit ain't worth watching unless it shakes the ground

Our house is detached with no neighbours around

So lord won't you buy me some Dolby Surround

 

Interesting as to who capitalises lord...

Oh Lord, won'tcha buy me a new pair of legs?

Some crazy bitch broke mine like a couple've eggs

She'd had one too many of those Heinekin kegs

So Lord won'tcha buy me a new pair of legs?

 

Oh Lord, won'tcha make me a damn rich old miser?

'Cuz that lady had one too many budweisers!

Beats waiting on my investment in Pfizer

So Lord, won't you make me a damn rich old miser!

 

Oh Lord, won'tcha find me one good attorney

One who will take on my insurance company

Dammit! Of course I'm eligible! I got cut off at the knees!

So Lord, won'tcha find me one good attorney.

 

And Lord, finally, get me out of this bed

I've been sitting here for months! I feel like I'm dead!

And, God, I really wish I could get some good...oh never mind...

...I'm done...
