God Bless the Child

(Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr.)

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

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

Money, you got lots o'friends
Crowdin' round the door.
When you're gone and spendin' ends,
They don't come no more.

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