Sung to the song War by Edwin Starr (1969)




War

War, huh, yeah
Who is it really for?
Narcisist control freaks, uh
War, huh, yeah
Who is it really for?
Narcisist control freaks, uh
Say it again y'all
War, huh, yeah
Who is it really for?
Narcisist control freaks, listen to me

 

War, I surmise
Has already taken way too many lives
War means the poor, get hit the very worst
'Cause they can't control a fight
You brought to their life

 

I said WAR, huh, good God y'all
Who is it really for?
Narcisist control freaks, just say it again
WAR, whoa oh Lord
Who is it really for?
Narcisist control freaks, listen to me

 

It aint nuthin but a money maker
Friend only to the debt-collector
Oh, War, it's devastating, to all God's kind
The thought of war should blow your mind
War has caused so much death
It's so easy to look and see
Now it's nuclear destruction
We all could die. Oh

 

War, huh, Good God y'all

Who is it really for?

Narcisist control freaks

Shout it from the roof tops

War, uh-huh, yeah, uh

Who is it really for?

Narcisist control freaks, listen to me

 

It ain't nothing but a murder scene

It's got one friend, the documentary

Oh, war, has shattered many societies

Made them crumble to their knees

Everything gets taken

By the wealthy debtees

War can't help us

It can't save us from ourselves

 

War, huh, Good God y'all

Who is it really for?

Narcisist control freaks

Say it again

War, uh-huh, yeah, uh

Who is it really for?

Narcisist control freaks, listen to me

 

(This last verse can not be said better than the original song)

 

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
