What they fightin' for?
What they fightin' for?
What they fightin' for?
What they fightin' for?
What they fightin' for?

War, war, war
Please tell me, what they fightin' for?
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth

The armchair generals send the men to fight
With a gun in some foreign land
With orders to shoot and kill the enemy
But there's something I can't understand
What is there to be gained? (What is there to be gained?)
Only heartache and pain (only heartache and pain)
Has the world gone insane?
Look they're fightin' again
For what I don't know!

War, war, war
Please tell me, what they fightin' for?
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth

War, war, war
Please tell me, what they fightin' for?
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth

All these nations who claim that they're uniting
Try to make peace your goal
Don't you dictate, with brutality and hate
Aiming to seek control
Try to set an example (set an example)
Instead of trying to trample (instead of trying to trample)
All over the weaker ones
You've been doing it since time begun, yeah!

War, war, war
Please tell me, what they fightin' for?
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth

War, war, war
Please tell me, what they fightin' for?
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth
Now

Tell me what dem fightin' for?!
Please tell me what dem fightin' for?!
(War-war-war-war-war...)

The armchair generals send the men to fight
With a gun in some foreign land
With orders to shoot and kill the enemy
But there's something I can't understand
What is there to be gained? (What is there to be gained?)
Only heartache and pain (only heartache and pain)
Has the world gone insane?
Look they're fightin' again
For what I don't know!

(War, war, war)
Please tell me what they fightin' for
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth

(War, war, war)
Please tell me what they fightin' for
In all four corners of the earth
They don't know what life is worth (no-no-no)
