Who wins a war?
Is it the soldier or marine?
The President or Queen?
Who wins a war?

Who wins a war?
Is it the orphan or the amputee?
The widow of those lost at sea?
Who wins a war?

Why win a war?
For pride or prosperity?
For principles or property?
Why win a war?

Why win a war?
Is it for patriotism or oil
We shuffle off this mortal coil?
Why win a war?

Who wins a war?
Fat merchants in their beds?
Or political talking heads?
Who wins a war?
