The following is posted on behalf of Mr E.Star because I can't say it any better than he already has.
War, what IS it good for ?

War, Huh, yeah
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Ahuh
War, Huh, yeah
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again, y'all
War, Huh
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me
Oww!

War, I despise;
Because it means destruction of innocent lives.
War means tears to thousands of loving eyes,
When their sons go to fight and lose their lives.

I said
War, Huh, Good God Y'all
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
War, Huh, Oh Lord
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me
War, Huh,
It ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker,
friend only to the undertaker.

Oh, War is an enemy of all mankind ,
The point of war blows my mind.
War has caused unrest within the younger generation.
Induction, then destruction
Who wants to die?!?

Ow, War, huh, Good God, Y'all,
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Say it, Say it, Say it
War, Huh, yeah
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me
War,
It ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker,
It got one friend that's the undertaker.

War has shattered many young men's dreams.
Made him disabled, bitter and mean!
Life is but too surely precious to
fight mighty wars each day;
War can't give life it can only take it away.

Ow, War, huh, Good God, Y'all,
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Say it again,
War, Huh,
<What is it good for?>
Absolutely nothing!
Listen to me
War,
It ain't nothin' but a heartbreaker,
friend only to the undertaker
Whoo!

Peace, love and understanding, tell me
is there no place for the everyday?
They say we must fight
to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way
Ow!

War, huh, Good God, Y'all,
<What is it good for?>
You tell me, Huh
Say it, Say it, Say it
War, Huh, yeah
<What is it good for?>
nothing!
