Translation Blues

Translation Blues

Inspired by Janis Joplin’s “Mercedes Benz.”

Oh Lord, won’t you give me a text that makes sense?
The deadline is looming, I must make amends.
Worked hard all the week long, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you give me a text that makes sense?

Oh Lord, won’t you get them to pay me the fee?
Dying for Dollars, ain’t working for free.
I wait for delivery each day until three,
So Lord, won’t you get them to pay me the fee?

Oh Lord, won’t you spare me another meltdown?
I’m counting on you Lord, please don’t let me down.
Prove that you love me, I’m worked to the ground,
Oh Lord, won’t you spare me another meltdown?

Everybody!
Oh Lord, won’t you give me a text that makes sense?
The deadline is looming, I must make amends.
Worked hard all the week long, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you give me a text that makes sense?
