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,
AND THE SPENDING ENDS,
THEY DON'T COME NO MORE.

RICH RELATIONS GIVE
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
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.
