Absolutely nothing
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, why'all
Verse 2
War, huh, good god
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
Verse 3
Oh, war, I despise
'Cause it means destruction of innocent lives
Verse 4
War means tears to thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

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, ah, war-huh, good god why'all
What is it good for

Say it, say it, say it

What is it good for
Absolutely nothing listen to me
Verse 8
(War) it ain't nothing but a heart breaker
(War) it's got one friend that's the undertaker

To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away

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
Verse 12
Oh, war, huh good god why'all
What is it good for you tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it
Verse 13
(War) huh good god why'all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it nothing
