WAR!

 

Oh no

There's got to be a better way

Say it again

There's got to be a better way-yeah

What is it good for?

War has caused unrest

Among the younger generation

Induction then destruction

Who wants to die?

War-huh

What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing

Say it again

War-huh

What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing

Yeah

War-I despise

'Cos it means destruction

Of innocent lives

War means tears

To thousands of mothers how

When their sons go off to fight

And lose their lives

I said

War-huh

It's an enemy of all mankind

No point of war

'Cos you're a man

Give it to me one time-now

Give it to me one time-now

War has shattered

Many young men's dreams

We've got no place for it today

They say we must fight to keep our freedom

But Lord, there's just got to be a better way

It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker

War

Friend only to the undertaker

War

War

War-Good God, now

Now

Give it to me one time now

Now now

What is it good for?
