​God Bless The Child

This song is by Mikalah Gordon and appears on the television soundtrack American Idol Season 4 (2005).

"Them that's got shall get
Them that's not shall lose"
So the Bible said
And it still is news

Mama may have
And 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
And 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 around your door
When you're gone and spending ends
They don't come around no more

Rich relations give
Crusts of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much

Mama may have
And 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 around your door
When you're gone and spending ends
They don't come around no more

Rich relations, they give
Crusts of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don't take too much off

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

He just don't worry about nothing
'Cause he's got his own
