    Lyrics

    (B. Holiday / A. Herzog)

    Those that's got shall get
    Those that's not shall lose
    So the bible said and it still is true

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

    Well the strong seem to get 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

    And when you got money
    You got lots of friends
    Crawling round your door
    When the money's gone
    And all your spending ends
    They won't be around no more

    Rich relations may give you
    A crust of bread and such
    You can help yourself but don't take too much

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

    When you got money
    You got lots of friends
    Crawling round your door
    When the money's gone
    And all your spending ends
    They won't be around no more

    Rich relations may give you
    A 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 who can turn round and say
    I've got my own
