Lyrics (otw) War 

War

Edwin Starr

War, huh, yeah

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing

War, huh, yeah

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing

Say it again, why’all

War, huh, good god

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 to fight

And lose their lives

I said, war, huh good god, why’all

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing say it again

War, whoa, lord

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing, listen to me

it ain’t nothing but a heart-breaker

(War) friend only to the undertaker

Oh, 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 why’all

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing

Say it, say it, say it

War, huh

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing listen to me

it ain’t nothing but a heart breaker

(War) it’s got one friend that’s the undertaker

Oh, 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

Oh, war, huh good god why’all

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing say it again

whoa, lord

What is it good for

Absolutely nothing listen to me

it ain’t nothing but a heart breaker

(War) 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

Oh, war, huh good god why’all

What is it good for you tell me

Say it, say it, say it, say it

huh good god why’all

What is it good for

Stand up and shout it nothing

Songwriters: Barret Strong / Norman Whitfield

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
