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

Your mama may have
Your papa may have
But God bless the child
Who's got his own

The strong get more
The weak ones fade
Empty pockets
Well, they don't ever make the grade

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

When you've got money
You've got lots of friends
They're always hangin' around your door
But when the money's all gone
And the spending ends
They don't come around much anymore

Rich relations give
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But you better not take too much, no

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

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

Your mama may have
Your papa may have
But God bless the child
That's got his own
Them that's got his own
Them that's got his own

HOLIDAY, JIMMY
