War
Edwin Starr Lyrics


War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, uhh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'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 mother's 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 nothing, just say it again
War (whoa), huh (oh Lord)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me

(War) 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? Oh

War, huh (good God y'all)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War (uh-huh), huh (yeah, huh)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me

(War) 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 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, oh

War, huh (good God y'all)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, say it again

War (whoa), huh (oh Lord)
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me

(War) It ain't nothing but a heart breaker
(War) Friend only to The Undertaker, woo
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 (God y'all)
What is it good for? You tell me (nothing)
Say it, say it, say it, say it

War (good God), huh (now, huh)
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout it (nothing)

It's fantastic to know that the world still supports my big brother's music... thank you all.

Your brother sang what most were thinking. Although, I support our Troops because they're only fighting on Orders given to them and they should be respected always.

I know our government operates on Financial Opportunities, an example would be "Pearl Harbor" 1941 a day we will live in infamy!!!!!

Another would be September 11th, 2001 aka 9-11, the government is made up of Snollygosters (politicians)who are shrewd and unprincipled, and Kakistoracy (the least qualified or the worst)and we the Grumbletonians (people) are unhappy and angry with them."

I had the pleasure of meeting him and being his personal bouncer for the evening at an event in a pub club called brannigans in Edinburgh, Scotland. The most humble and loveliest man ever! Loved his people.. and they certainly loved him.. a true pleasure to meet and spend time with!
