So good they made songs about it!:
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…
Joplin Janis – Mercedes Benz lyrics
I don' t believe anyone got a Mercedes Benz by praying for it, God helps those that help themselves.
Janis' version was a cover of a Bessie Smith song..
