Lyrics

How Long?
(Thompson)

How long will we keep on fighting?
How long must this war go on?
How long will we keep on dying?
How long must I sing this song?

They said there'd be nothin' to it
They said that it would be over soon
They told us lots of pretty lies
Wanna shoot them off too the moon
How Long?
How Long? (How long?)

There's no way to call this vict'ry
Ninety-thousand civilians gone
This war was never supposed to happen
Grim Reaper marches on

There's really just one answer
One way to make this horror stop
Best never to have started
Let's quit! Walk away! Let it drop!
How Long?
How Long? (How long?)

(lead break)

There's really just one answer
One way to make this horror stop
Best never to have started
But now, walk away! Let it drop!

How long will we keep on fighting?
How long must this war go on?
How long will we keep on dying?
How long must I sing this song?
How Long?
How Long? (How long?)
