The Leica M9 Song

I wrote this on September 14, 2009, in an earlier incarnation of this site. And I retrieved it from the Wayback Machine that registers and stores many millions of web pages. It was inspired by something I read from Fraser Smith, and Janis Joplin’s Oh Lord Won’t You Buy Me A Mercedes Benz


The Leica Song

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Leica M9?
I’m done shooting Nikons, I want to shoot prime.
It’s full-frame or nothing, and a big LCD, And manual focus, please explain that to me.

Oh Lord, how I wanted a Leica M8, But now I am grateful that you made me wait.
Worked hard all my lifetime, to get what is mine, Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Leica M9.
Oh Lord, do this one thing, this one thing for me, And Lord I’ll review it – I’ll do it for free.
