War, war
War, huh
War, huh
War, huh
War, huh

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, look out
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

Ooh, war, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Ooh, war, I despise
'Cause 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 heart breaker
War, friend only
To the undertaker

Ooh, 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

Ah, war 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

War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing

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

War, it ain't nothing
But a heart breaker
War, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker

Ooh, 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

Ooh, 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 heart breaker
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

Ooh, 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

War, it ain't nothing
But a heart breaker
War, friend only
To the undertaker
