    Lyrics

    Them that's got shall get
    Them that's not shall lose
    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

    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
    When you're gone, spending ends
    They don't come no more
    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

    Mama may have, papa may have
    But God bless the child that's got his own
    That's got his own
    He just worry 'bout nothin'
    'Cause he's got his own
