God Bless The Child

A. Herzog Jr/Billie Holiday
Them that's got shall get Them that's not shall lose So the Bible said but 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 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 Money, you've got lots of friends Crowding round the door When you're gone, spending ends They don't come no more 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've got lots of friends Crowding round the door Money's gone, and spending ends They don't come no more Mama may have, Papa may have But God bless the child that's got his own That's got his own But God bless the child that's got his own That's got his own
