War means tears in thousands of mothers’ eyes
Em
When their sons go out to fight and lose their lives

War, uh! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing
War, uh!  What is it good for? Absolutely nothing
War, it’s nothing but a heart breaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
War is an enemy to all mankind, the thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest with the youngest generation
Induction then destruction who wants to die? Ah

War, ah um, What is it good for? You tell me nothing, um
War, uh! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing
Good God war! It’s nothing but a heartbreaker
War! Friend only to the undertaker
Wars have 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, can only take it away  Ah!

War! uh um! What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing (say it again!)
War, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah what is it good for? Absolutely nothing, say it again!
War, nothing but a heartbreaker, What is it good for? 
Friend only to the undertaker!
War!
