Edwin Starr - War (Live) [From Backdraft] Lyrics

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Ah, ha, ha, ha

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

War, huh
(Huh, look out)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Oh, war I despise
'Cause it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight
And lose their lives

I said, war, huh
(Good God y'all)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Just say it again

War, huh
(Woh, woh woh Lord)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker

Ah, war is an enemy
To all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind

War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction, then destruction
Who wants to die?

Ahh, war, huh
(Good God, y'all)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it

War, huh
(Ah ha yeah, huh)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, it got one friend, that's the undertaker

Ah, war has shattered
Many a young man's dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean

Life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars each day
War can't give life
It can only take it away

Ahh, war, huh
(Good God y'all)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, huh
(Woh woh woh, Lord)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker, 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 knows
There's gotta be a better way

Ahh, war huh
(Good God y'all)
What is it good for?
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it

War, huh
(Good God y'all)
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout it, nothing
War, huh
(It ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker)
