Them that's got shall have 
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 
(Repeat) 

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 
Yes he's got his own
