War

In the style of

Edwin Starr

Lyrics

war
huh
yeah
absolutely
uh huh uh huh

yeah
absolutely
say it again y'all
huh
look out
absolutely
listen to me
ah war

i despise
'cause it means
destruction
of innocent lives

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
absolutely
say it again

woh ooh woh ooh
woh oh lord
absolutely
listen to me

it ain't nothin'
but a heartbreaker
friend only
to the undertaker

aw 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
ah war
good god y'all

absolutely
say it
say it
say it
war
uh huh yeah huh
absolutely
listen to me

it ain't nothin'
but a heartbreaker
it's got one friend
that's the undertaker

aw 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
ah war
good god y'all
absolutely
say it again

woh ooh woh ooh
woh oh lord
ah absolutely
listen to me

it ain't nothin'
but a heartbreaker
friend only
to the undertaker
woo

peace love and
understandin'
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
aw

war
god y'all
you tell 'em
say it
say it
say it
say it

good god now
huh
stand up and shout it
it ain't nothin'
but a heartbreaker
