    Do You Ever Wonder

    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)
    For some unknown reason, nobody seems to take me seriously............

    Thanks Tim!

    I suppose that I'm the only one here with a weird sense of musical humor though as nobody else picked up the ball and ran with it!
