Music and Lyrics by Boy George
Performed by Jesse Borrego, Gene Anthony Ray, Carlo Imperato & Billy Hufsey
 

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And love means nothing
In some strange quarters

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And I heard the banging
On hearts and fingers
WAR

People build a world
With narrow confidence
Like a child at birth
A man with no defense

What's mine is my own
I won't give it to you
No matter what you say
No matter what you do

Now we're fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the streets
Won't somebody help me
Oh

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And love means nothing
In some strange waters

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And I heard the banging
Of hearts and fingers
WAR

Mine is far behind
In search of something new
Like the Philistine's
We're burning witches too

This world of hate
Must be in time for you
It's not what you say
And it's not what you do

Now we're fighting in our hearts
Fighting in the streets
Won't somebody help me

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And love means nothing
In some strange waters

War, war is stupid
And people are stupid
And I heard the banging
Of hearts and fingers
WAR

War  (repeats & fades out)
