"Man Of War" PDF Print E-mail
(track by the Jacksons, from album "Going Places", released in 1977)

You think that your way
Is the best way of all,
You don’t know everything,
So you don’t know it all.
You don’t respect a man
For the way that he feels.
You can’t make people do things
Against their will.

[Chorus]

Man of war,
Don’t go to war no more.
Why don’t you,
Why don’t you study peace?
Man of war,
Don’t go to war no more,
Study peace,
’Cause peace is what we need.

Just because your army
Gives you strength,
Gives you might,
Truth is gonna win,
Wrong will never conquer right!
Every man has a right
To think and be free.
You’re like a spoiled brat,
You want, everything you see.

[Chorus]

Man of war
Don’t go to war no more,
Why don’t you,
Why don’t you study peace?
Man of war,
Don’t go to war no more,
Study peace,
’Cause peace is what we need.
[Bridge]

You think that your bombs, guns and planes
Make you a big man,
When you attack and invade
On another man’s land?
Trying to make him be
What you want him to be,
Make him do
What you want him to do,
Make him say
What you want him to say,
It wasn’t meant to be that way.

You think that your way
Is the best way of all,
You don’t know everything,
So you don’t know it all.
(Everybody)
You got to respect a man
For the way that he feels,
You can’t make people do things
Against their will.

[Chorus]
