War...huh...yeah What is it good for? Absolutely nothing Uh ha haa ha War...huh...yeah What is it good for? Absolutley nothing...say it again y'all War..huh...look out... What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...listen to me ohhhhh WAR! I despise, 'cos it means destruction of innocent lives, War means tears to thousands of mother's eyes, When their sons gone to fight and lose their lives. I said WAR!...huh...good God y'all, What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...say it again War! Huh...What is it good for (Edwin sings 'Wohh oh Lord' over the top) Absolutely nothing...listen to me WAR! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker, War. Friend only to the undertaker. Ohhh! 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? Ohhh WAR! good God y'all huh What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...say it say it SAY IT! WAR!...uh huh yeah hu! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...listen to me WAR! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker, War! It's got one friend that's the undertaker. Ohhhh! War has shattered many a young man's dream, Made him disabled, bitter and mean, Life is much too short and precious to spend fighting wars these days. War can't give life, it can only take it away! Ohhh WAR! huh...good God y'all What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...say it again War!...huh...woh oh oh Lord What is it good for? Absolutely nothing...listen to me War! It ain't nothing but a heartbreaker, War. Friend only to the undertaker...woo Peace lovin' understand then 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. Ohhhhhhh WAR! huh...good God y'all... What is it good for?...you tell me! Say it say it say it saaaay it! War! good God now...huh What is it good for? Stand up and shout it...NOTHING [END]
