EDWIN STARR lyrics – 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’all

.

War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

.

Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives

.

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

.

I said, war, huh
Good God, y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

.

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

.

War, 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 me

.

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’all
War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

.

War, 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 away

.

Ooooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

.

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

.

War, 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 way

.

Ooooooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

.

War, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing
