Lyrics and explanation



Mercedes Benz Janis Joplin

Lyrics Janis Joplin
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 it!
Press Quote

(Translation, quote in French here)

About the covers :

There is
no tracks from Cure, Janis Joplin or PJ Harvey. As for Bowie, it would have been too obvious?

Yes, we are maybe too close to them to make a relevant cover. If we covered PJ Harvey, it would sound like Placebo.  During gigs, sometimes we cover a track or another from Cure (from the Pornography era). And Brian covers from time to time, during the encore, Janis Joplin's Mercedes Benz, alone, a capella. But I don't know if we should record it... I wonder if it wouldn't be better to save this for the ephemeral instant of a concert.
