Aretha Franklin - Trouble In Mind
God Bless The Child


Them that’s god shall get
Them that’s not shall lose
So the bible says
And it still is news

Momma may have
Poppa may have
God bless the child
That’s got his own
That’s got his own

Well, the strong gets more
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don’t
Ever make the grade

You’ve got lots of friends
Crowding round the door
And when it’s gone and
Spending ends
Rich relations will give you
A crust of bread and such
You can help yourself
But don’t take too much
