Yeah, Edwin Starr had very eloquently explained to everyone in this 1970 song about what good is war. Although it was anti-Vietnam War protest version back then, but looking back at how things have been going on lately, this will perfectly fit. Just two days prior to this day we saluted all the veteran's for their courage and honored them for protecting us. And then history repeats this day. A planned attach by terrorists on innocent people in Paris. Was there a reason for this attack? Was anyone who was hurt or killed in this massacre reason behind the attack? The answer is no. A retaliation for something that has no purpose. Yet, so many lives lost. Begs to ask why fight? Why hate? Of course one never gets answers but only pray that sometime in future all this madness will end and we truly will live in harmony and peace.

Thank you Edwin for trying to push some sense into everyone. Although he had help with Lyrics by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong. It was for his album War & Peace, so aptly titled.



Lyrics in English:

War, Huh Yeah; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Oh Hoh, Oh
War Huh Yeah; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Say It Again Y'all
War, Huh Good God; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Listen To Me

Oh, 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; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Just Say It Again
War Whoa Lord; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Listen To Me
War, It Ain't Nothin' But A Heartbreak
War, Friend Only To The Undertaker

Oh 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

War, Good God, Y'all; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Say It, Say It, Say It
War, Uh Huh, Yeah, Huh; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Listen To Me
War, It Ain't Nothin' But A Heartbreaker
War, It's Got One Friend That's The Undertaker

Oh, War Has Shattered Many Young Man's Dreams
Made Him Disabled Bitter And Mean
Life Is Much Too Short And Precious To Spend Fighting Wars These Days
War Can't Give Life It Can Only Take It Away, Ooh

War, Huh, Good God Y'all; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Say It Again
War, Whoa, Lord; What Is It Good For?
Absolutely Nothing, Listen To Me
War, It Ain't Nothin' But A Heartbreaker
War, Friend Only To The Undertaker

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

War, Huh, Good God Y'all; What Is It Good For?
You Tell 'Em, Say It, Say It, Say It, Say It
War, Good Lord, Huh; What Is It Good For?
Stand Up And Shout It, Nothing
War, It Ain't Nothin' But A Heartbreaker
