Then that's got shall get
Them that's not shall loose
So the Bible said and 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

Well 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 your door
When it's gone and spending ends
They don't come round no more

Rich relations give
Crusts 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

Songwriters
HOLIDAY, JIMMY
