God Bless The Child - Lyrics

Them thats got shall get
Them thats not shall lose
So the bible says and it still is news
Mama may have papa may have
But God bless the child
That got its own, that got its own

Yes the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets dont ever make the grade
Mama may have, papa may have
But God bless the child
Thats got its own, thats got its own

Money youve got lots of friends
Crowding around the door
When youre gone
And the spending ends
They dont come no more
Rich relations give
Crusts of bread and such
You can help your self
But dont take to much
Mama may have, papa may have
But God bless the child
Thats got its own, thats got its own

Writer(s): BILLIE HOLIDAY, ARTHUR HERZOG JR.
