War
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
War
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing

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

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

What is it good for?

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