Do you ever wonder how some of the great songs that we all love that were written back in the 60's, 70;'s and 80's would have changed if the artists would have written those same songs in 2020? Let's have some fun with this!

Richard

Janis Joplin's original song lyrics for her song "Mercedes Benz" that was released on her "Pearl" album back in 1971.

Verse 1:

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

Verse 2:

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

Verse 3:

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

Verse
4:

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

Spoken:
That's it! (cackle)

Here are my thoughts on how Janis might have written this same song in 2020.

Verse 1:

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a sleeve of toilet paper
My friends all
have sleeves of paper towels, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So Lord, won't you buy me a
sleeve of toliet paper

Verse 2:

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a sleeve of paper napkins
Wall-Mart is trying to find me
I wait for delivery
from Amazon each day until three
So oh Lord, won't you buy me a
sleeve of paper napkins

Verse 3:

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a night at my favorite restaurant in 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
at my favorite restaurant in town

[Verse
4]

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a sleeve of toilet paper
My friends all
have sleeves of paper towels, I must make amends
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends
So Lord, won't you buy me a
sleeve of toilet paper

Spoken:
That's it! (cackle)
