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?
