God Bless The Child
by David Peaston

Them that's got shall have
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says, 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 get smart
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the chils that's got his own, that's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
They're crowding around your door
But when you're gone and spending ends
They don't come 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 thats got his own, that's got his own
