"God Bless the Child" as written by and Arthur Herzog Jr. Billie Holiday....
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
That's got his own

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
That's got his own
That's got his own

They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Cause he's got his own
They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Cause he's got his own
They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Nothing
Nothing

Rich relations give
Crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much
Mama may have, papa may have
God bless the child that's got his own
That's got his own
That's got his own

They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Cause he's got his own
They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Cause he's got his own
They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Cause he's got his own
They don't worry 'bout nothin'
Nothing
Nothing

God bless the child
God bless the child
God bless the child
God bless the child
The child
