God Bless the Child Lyrics

Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible said and it still is news, oh, oh
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

Yes, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade, oh
Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
When you're gone, and spending ends
They don't come round no more

Rich relations give
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much, oh
Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own
