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.

~Billie Holiday, “God Bless the Child“ (1941)

When you comin’ home, dad?

I don’t know when, but we’ll get together then, son

You know we’ll have a good time then

~Harry Chapin, “Cat’s in the Cradle,” Verities and Balderdash (1974)
