This Janis Joplin song lyric seems to be commenting on consumerism and the pursuit of wealth and material goods. “Dialing For Dollars” was a game show from the 1960s where contestants would win money and prizes.

Joplin appears to be sarcastically asking God to help her acquire wealth and possessions like a color TV by winning on such a game show. The quote suggests she views this pursuit of wealth and consumerism as empty or meaningless.

Janis Joplin was born on January 19, 1943 in Port Arthur, Texas. Sadly, her life and career were cut short when she died of a drug overdose on October 4, 1970 at the young age of 27. She was a highly influential singer and songwriter who became one of the most popular and acclaimed performers at the Woodstock festival in 1969.
