Oh Lord…

Karise Eden, the Voice contestant, has really come into her own. Compared to her first audition on the show and the confident career she is now pursuing, she has really come into her own.

Belting out Janis’s unforgettable “Mercedes BenzKarise nails down these challenging vocals effortlessly and channels the raspy soul of our beloved Janis.

“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz? My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends “

Now, I know what you’re thinking- she does not have half as much expression that Janis did while performing this song 3 days before her unfortunate passing, however, she makes it her own.

Interesting Fact: Joplin got the idea for this song after riding in Bobby Womack’s new Mercedes 600.

There is no denying the natural pitch and vocal range that Karise was born with and we love that she is sharing it with the world!

Rock on girl!

+ Mercedes Benz Lyrics +

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?

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?

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?

Everybody!
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?

That’s it!
