God Bless The Child

Written By: Arthur Herzog Jr. / Billie Holiday

 

Them thatís got shall get
Thems that not shall lose
So the Bible says
And it still is news

Mama may have
Papa may have
But God bless the child
Thatís got his own
Thatís got his own

Yes the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets donít
Ever make the grade

Mama may have
And Papa may have
But God bless the child
Thatís got his own
Thatís got his own

Money youíve got lots of friends
Hangin round your door
When youíre gone and spendin ends
They donít come back no more

Rich relations give
Crusts of bread and such
You can help yourself
But donít take too much

Mama may have
Papa may have
But God bless the child
Thatís got his own
Thatís got his own
