Janis Joplin '09 - Poem by Mike Michaels

If anyone wants to google the original lyrics, the first line was approximately 'Oh Lord won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz'

Sorry Janis......

Oh Lord, please pur-chase me a luxury vehicle
I am impecunious, I need a miracle
Rode the bus all my lifetime to immense ridicule
So Lord, please pur-chase me a luxury vehicle

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a laptop PC
They are all beyond my affordability
How I have yearned for computing portability
With onboard universal, wireless connectivity
Lord if you buy me a laptop PC
I promise, every Sunday, you will hear from me

Oh Lord, please build me a luxury residence
I know you can hear me, I require no evidence
Just ten bedrooms, a swimming pool and an electrified fence
And my soul will be yours from this day hence

Oh Lord, won't you buy me a plasma TV
My old cathode ray tube is too hard to see
I need something larger, with HD in 3D
And I'm sorry that last year I wrote to SC
Please don't take offence, accept my apology
Then Lord please send me that plasma TV

    I stood on a nearby hill
    And spoke to God.
    I asked him to help me win the lottery
    And the week passed and I did not win.
    I returned to the hill
    And spoke to God.
    I asked him, 'Please god help me win the lottery.'
    And the week passed and I did not win.
    I went again to the hill
    And spoke to God.
    I said, 'Dear God, I've asked you twice before,
    please help me win the lottery'
    This time the clouds parted and a mighty voice,
    The voice of God spoke,
    'You've got to buy a ticket.

    (The Lord helps those who help themselves.)
