God Bless the Child

Lyrics ,Music:Arthur Herzog Jr. ,Billie Holiday

The song was publishe 1941.

On December 30, 1938, Billie Holiday began singing
at Barney Josephson’s Cafe Society nightclub at a salary of $75 a week,
seven-days-a-week.
The gig had been arranged by impresario John Hammond, who,
although not Holiday’s manager per se, had been instrumental
in many strategic career moves for her.
Holiday was happy to have a steady New York engagement after being
on the road with the big bands of Count Basie and Artie Shaw.

Working at Cafe Society was the first time she was able to have
complete artistic control over her material.
She began singing and recording more standards rather than
Tin Pan Alley material that song pluggers insisted she do.
Although she quit Cafe Society in August, 1939, the exposure there,
plus having a recording in the charts (“Strange Fruit”),
enabled her to find work at 52nd Streets clubs such as Kelly’s Stables
and the Famous Door for much better pay.
In May, 1941, when she recorded “God Bless the Child,”
she was working at Kelly’s Stables for $300 a week
with pianist Art Tatum accompanying her.




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, 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

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
