Edwin Starr sjunger den största protestlåten under hela vietnamkriget (någonsin tom). Den låg på första plats på Billboard Hot 100. Bruce Springsteen gjorde en grym version av den här låten 1985 under Born in the USA Tour.

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
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


Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives


War means tears
To thousands of mothers 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
Say it again


War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me


War, it ain't nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It's an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, war-huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me


War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
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


War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away


Ooooh, 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 nothing 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


Ooooooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it


War, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing
