Audra McDonald - God Bless the Child Lyrics

Broadway Singer
Audra McDonald - God Bless the Child Lyrics


(Song from Lady Day at Emerson's Bar and Grill Show 2014)

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 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

(short bridge)

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 ’bout nothing
‘Cause he’s got his own
