JANIS AT HER FUNNIEST....


JANIS JOPLIN LYRICS"Mercedes Benz"
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 all.

I have tried to put the video on here of her singing it..but it is beyond my abilities..even after tex told me how to do it..fucker...not tex..video's...

I haven't seen the video and I'm too lazy to go look for it.
One of my co-workers would leave the office when I played that song. I played it a lot for that reason :)

I would just love to change my car and having been to look at one yesterday at a local garage I realise that 'Lord' aint gonna buy me nothing...

I'm gonna have to learn how to do the video thing. I still haven't figured out why some of my links still don't work.
Janis was great to listen to. I still do actually. At work I play the only good FM station here. They play all 70's and 80's classic rock. I just wish they would play a bigger variety.
Looks like some new visitors. What's your secret?

rainwolf:i make people get up and leave the room when I sing it...
old:don't you wish you could actually pray to someone and have them answer your prayers..i don't understand how those people at the grammy's are always thanking god for letting them win...wonder what their secret is?
nitiwit:tex told me how to do it..but still couldn't get it to work...
I hunt them down and drag them here by force..threaten to bip them...
