Oh Lord Won’t You Buy Me A Mercedes Benz?

I thought Friday should be fun or for me, a more tongue-in-cheek kinda day.  I wrote this years ago, when I had had my fill of prosperity preachers.  And sometimes I re-write everything but the chorus.  OLWYBMAMB is a country song that should be sung really twangy, with a stomp of the foot!  If I could sing, I would sing it for you, but I don’t want to ruin your weekend.

So start stomping and pinch your nose tight!

OH LORD WON’T YOU BUY ME A MERCEDES BENZ? BY Joni Berry

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
I’ve been drivn’ this wreck around since Abe Lincoln was in.
It won’t go in drive so I sa been backing up all day.
Oh, Lord won’t you help me to find a way?
Well, if you ever been living in a little ole town.
Not having wheels don’t mean you can’t get around.
But since them developers came and bought up all the land.
Now, all the townsfolk has jumped on the luxury band.
CHORUS
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
I’ve been drivn’ this wreck around since Abe Lincoln was in.
It won’t go in drive so I sa been backing up all day.
Oh, Lord won’t you help me  to find a way?
The small Baptist church up on the hill, has a new prosperity preacher,
And Lord, you ought to hear what he has been teachin’ us.
He said if I want my pockets full of hundred dollar bills,
Then give him my paycheck, cause that is God’s will.
CHORUS
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
I’ve been drivn’ this wreck around since Abe Lincoln was in.
It won’t go in drive so I sa been backing up all day.
Oh, Lord won’t you help me to find a way?
He said the Lord, will bless me with more than I need.
Well now I am broke, so I is planting a seed.
The funny thing Lord is I don ’t know who he’s been giving to,
Cause he drives a mercedes, nice…shiny…and new!
CHORUS
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
I’ve been drivn’ this wreck around since Abe Lincoln was in.
It won’t go in drive so I sa been backing up all day.
Oh, Lord won’t you help me to find a way?
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
