War


WAR
(Chorus)
War, why war
Why clean we these bloodstain floors?
I say
War, why war
Why not open up the door?
And end this horrible war.

Days, ever so slowly drift on by.
Why must we spread our harsh-full lies?
All we hear in the distant are our baby’s cry
As their heroes die.

War, why war
Why clean these bloodstain floors?
I say
War, why war
Why not open up the door?
And end this horrible war.

And when the day is done
We are still, on the run
If we just use words instead of our gun
We shall have finally won.

War, why war
Why clean we these bloodstain floors?
I say
War, why war
Why not open up the door?
And end this horrible war.

(Repeat Chorus) -optional
