War Lyrics

by Joan Osborne

War
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
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

War
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Tell me war
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing

War, it's an enemy of all mankind
The news of war
It breaks my heart and close my mind
War has laid waste 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

Oh 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, Lord there's got to be a better way

Say war
What is it good for?
Tell me, tell me, tell me
War
What is it good for?
What is it good for?
What is it good for?

Ohh, can you tell me now?
There's got to be a better way
