Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band – “War” (Live – 1985)

April 14, 2018 at 9:15 am (Life & Politics, Music)

“Blind faith in your leaders — or in anything — will get you killed.”

War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Come on
 
War is something that I despise
For it means destruction of innocent lives
Ten thousand bullets in a mother’s cry
When their son’s go out to fight to give their lives in a…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
War
It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to the undertaker
 
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war it just blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Induction, destruction, who wants to die in a…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
War
It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War
Friend only to an undertaker
 
War has shattered many young men’s dreams
Made them disabled bitter and mean
Life is too precious to be fighting wars each day
War can’t give life it can only take it away
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
 
Peace, love and understanding it all
There must be some place for these things today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord there’s gotta be another way that’s better than…
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Come on now
 
War!
What is it good for? Absolutely nothing!
Say it again… war!
What is it good for? Nothing!
 
I’m talkin’ about war!
