Edwin Starr – War

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y’allWar, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to meOhhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent livesWar means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their livesI said, war, huh
Good God, y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it againWar, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to meWar, it ain’t nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It’s an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, war-huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to meWar, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y’all
War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to meWar, it ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it’s got one friend
That’s the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can’t give life
It can only take it awayOoooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it againWar, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to meWar, it ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there’s got to be a better wayOoooooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say itWar, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing
