Marlon:
You think that your way
Is the best way for 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 and
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

Michael:
Just because your army
Gives you strength and gives you might
Truth is gonna win wrong will
Never conquer right
Every man has the 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

Michael:
You think that your bombs, guns, and planes
Make you a big man
When you attack and invade
On another man’s land
Tryin’ 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

Marlon:
You think your way
Is the best way for all
You don’t know everything so
You don’t know it all
You got to 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
