Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says and it still is news

Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own

And the strong get more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade

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
All hangin' 'round your door
But when the money's gone
And all your spendin' ends
They won't hang around any more

Rich relations may give you
A crust of bread and such
Sayin' help, go on help yourself
But don't take too much

Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own
That's got his own
That's got his own

Mama may have and Papa may have
But God bless the child who can stand up and say
He's got his own

Songwriters
HOLIDAY, JIMMY
