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
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Oh, 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

War, huh
Good God, y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

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

War, it ain't nothing
But a heart breaker
What is it good for
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-huh

Good God y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

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

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Come on, let me hear

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

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
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all

War, whoa
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Come on say

War, whoa
Come on, shout it y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Come on, come on now

And it ain't nothing but a heart breaker
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?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all

War, huh
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all

War, huh
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
