Lyrics:
War... (huh!) Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Uh huh uh hu-uh.

War... (huh!) Yeah!
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Say it again y'all.

War... (huh!) Look out!
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Listen to me.

Ahhh war...
I despise, cause it means destruction of innocent life.
War means tears to thousands of mothers' eyes,
when their sons go off to fight and lose their lives.

I said, war... (huh!) Good God y'all.
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Say it again.

War... (huh!) Whoa whoa whoa Lord.
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Listen to me.

War...
It ain't nothin' but a heart breaker.
War...
Friend only, to the undertaker.

Ahhh 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?

Ahhh war... (huh!) Good God y'all.
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Say it, say it, say it.

War... (huh!) Uh huh yeah, huh!
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Listen to me.

War...
It ain't nothin' but a heart breaker.
War...
Its got one friend, that's the undertaker.

Ahhh war...
has shattered, many a young man's dreams.
Made him disabled, bitter and mean.
Life is but too short and precious,
it's been fighting wars each day.
War can't give life, it can only take it away.

Ahhh war... (huh!) Good God y'all.
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Say it again.

War... (huh!) Whoa whoa whoa Lord.
What is it good for?
Absolutely... (nothin'!) Listen to me.

War...
It ain't nothin' but a heart breaker.
War...
Friend only, to the undertaker.

wooo

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.

Ahhh war... (huh!) Good God y'all.
What is it good for?
You tell 'em. (nothin'!) Say it, say it, say it, say it.

War... (huh!) Good God now, huh!
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout it. (nothin'!)... [FADE OUT]
