Did you hear about?
Have you heard?
I have seen the news on the Tv
about the war that is happening. This is bad.
War it means the destructuon of innocent lives
War means tears
Tears to thousands of mother's eyes when their sons go off to fight
And lose their lives
War what is it good for?
It ain't nothing but a heart-breaker
The thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die? Oh
Oh, war, has shattered many a young man's dreams. Made him disabled, bitter and mean.
Has shattered dreams of many people
Life is much too short and precious
To spend fighting wars each day
War can't give life. It can only take it away.
Peace, love and understanding, tell me. Is there no place for them today?
