  • 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

    God bless' the child,
    That's got his own
    That's got his own
    Yes the strong seem to get more

    While the weak ones fade
    Empty pockets don't
    Ever make the grade
    As mama may have

    And papa may have
    God bless' the child
    That's got his own
    That's got his own.

    And when you got money,
    You got a lots of friends
    Crowdin' 'round your door
    When the money's gone

    And all you're spendin' ends
    They won't be 'round any more
    No, no, no more
    And rich relations

    May give you
    A crust of bread and such
    You can help yourself
    But don't take too much

    Mama may have
    And your papa may have
    But God bless' the child
    That's got his own

    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!
