Joan Osborne – War lyrics

Chorus:
War
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
Friend only to the undertaker
War means tears
To thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight
And their daughters lose their lives in

Chorus

War, it's an enemy of all mankind
The news of war, it breaks my heart and closes my mind
War has caused unrest to a whole generation
Induction then destruction
And who wants to die in a

War
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Tell me
War
What is it good for
Ask yourself this question

Peace Love and Understanding;
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But lord, lord there's got to be a better way

War
What is it good for
Tell me, tell me, tell me
War

What is it good for

Can you tell me now
There's got to be a better way
