Oh no-there's got to be a better way Say it again There's got to be a better way-yeah What is it good for? (war) Man has a sense for the discovery of beauty How rich is the world for one who makes you for us to show Beauty must have power over man, war After the end of the war I want to devote myself To my thoughts for five to ten years and to writing them down War has caused unrest among the younger generation Induction then destruction, who wants to die? Wars come and go what remains are only the values of culture Then of course there is revolutionary love Love of comrades fighting for the people and love of people Not an abstract people but people one meets and works with When Che Guevara taught of love being At the center of revolutionary endeavor, he meant both For people like Che or George Jackson or Malcolm X Love was the prime mover of their struggle That love cost them their lives, love coupled with a man's pride Love coupled with a man's pride Give it to you on top, now War, I despise 'cause it means destruction of innocent lives War, means tears to thousands of mothers how When their sons go off to fight and lose their lives I said, war, good god, now, what is it good for? Absolutely, nothing Say it again, war, 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, war (War, war, war, war) War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing Say it, war, good god now, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing, say it, (war) Oh no, there's got to be a better way Say it again, there's got to be a better way Yeah, what is it good for? War, what is it good for?
