God Bless the Child
(Arthur Herzog and Billie Holliday)

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

Money, you got lots of friends,
Crowdin' 'round the door,
When you're gone and spending 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 child that's got his own!
That's got his own.

Recorded by Billie Holliday, Pearl Bailey et al.
