"There Is A War" lyrics

There Is A War

There is a war between the rich and poor
A war between the man and the woman
There is a war between the ones who say there is a war
And the ones who say there isn't

Why don't you come on back to the war
That's right, get in it
Why don't you come on back to the war
It's just beginning

Well I live here with a woman and a child
The situation makes me kind of nervous
Yes, I rise up from her arms
She says "I guess you call this love"
I call it service

Why don't you come on back to the war
Don't be a tourist
Why don't you come on back to the war
Before it hurts us
Why don't you come on back to the war
Let's all get nervous

You cannot stand what I've become
You much prefer the gentleman I was before
I was so easy to defeat
I was so easy to control
I didn't even know there was a war

Why don't you come on back to the war
Don't be embarrassed
Why don't you come on back to the war
You can still get married

There is a war between the rich and poor
A war between the man and the woman
There is a war between the left and right
A war between the black and white
A war between the odd and the even

Why don't you come on back to the war
Pick up your tiny burden
Why don't you come on back to the war
Let's all get even
Why don't you come on back to the war
Can't you hear me speaking?
