God Bless the Child
Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says, and it still is news
Your mama may have, your papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own

The strong get more
The weak ones pay
Empty pockets, well, they don't ever make the grade
Mama may have, papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own
Who's got his own

When you've got money, you've got lots of friends
They're always hanging 'round your door
But when the money's all gone, and the spending ends
They don't come 'round much any more

Rich relations give a crust of bread and such
You can help yourself, but you better not take too much, no
Mama may have, papa may have
But God bless the child who's got his own
Who's got his own

Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says, and it still is news
Your mama may have, your papa may have
God bless the child that's got his own
Them that's got his own
Them that's got his own
