Annie Lennox - God Bless The Child Lyrics

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 and Papa may have
But God bless the child 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 round no more

Rich relations give
Crust 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

    Listen to the Eva Cassidy version of this. My band does that version. And add the rhythm that Earth Wind and Fire used on the Chorus/Bridge.

  8. Fay Goodwin

    No I don't like this at all, it just failed in several ways, shame because I usually like Annie and her songs and choices of, same goes for several songs sung from the Nostalgia Album, some worked some didn't!


    Obrigada por existir <3

    I love this song and I love love love Miss Annie but I hated the arrangement. She seemed to be battling the piano. Maybe just the soulful B3 at the beginning and then bring in some strings for an ethereal quality and to enhance her voice.
    Just slow it down and let the notes marinate while the song simmers and deliver it in the end.

    I love Annie Lennox but I'm sorry to say that I didn't "feel it" here. I loved her version of Cole Porter's "Every Time We Say Goodbye". Perhaps it was this arrangement.

  23. Jose Nissan

    You are amazingly Wonderful Anniel!!!

  24. Emme Elliott


  25. Kelly

    You are a fantastic lady.  I wish one day to meet you.  It is a dream of mine. 

    Karla lomeli

    Kelly Jans me too :'( Haha I hope one day will That possible

  26. Jazzy Tunes

    I love this song,  but I'd like to hit the piano player, those chords are completely wrong.  Please show a little respect to the composer.  If you did that to one of my songs, you'd hear from me.     

  27. Wahkeena Sitka

    I respect Annie's decision to record this song.. It's one of my favorites sung by Billie Holliday. But I don't like her rendition of it. sorry.. not into it.
