God Bless the Child Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Them that's got, shall get
Them that's not, shall lose
So the Bible said, and it still is news
Mama may have, and papa may have
Verse 2
God bless' the child,
That's got his own
That's got his own
Yes the strong seem to get more
Verse 3
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't
Ever make the grade
As mama may have
Verse 4
And papa may have
God bless' the child
That's got his own
That's got his own.
Verse 5
And when you got money,
You got a lots of friends
Crowdin' 'round your door
When the money's gone
Verse 6
And all you're spendin' ends
They won't be 'round any more
No, no, no more
And rich relations
Verse 7
May give you
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much
Verse 8
Mama may have
And your papa may have
But God bless' the child
That's got his own
Verse 9
That's got his own
God bless' the child who can stand up and say
I've got my own
Ev'ry child's, got to have his own!
