Woman and war
Have they not been together since the beginning of Mankind
Eve -- the cause of Man's inhumanity to Man
Cleopatra -- the cause of the Egypto-Roman war
Marie Antoinette -- a cause of the French revolution

To be rid of one, perhaps we had best be rid of the other
And since we cannot lose the woman
We therefore must annihilate war

Woman and man
These are sores in the sides of Man
Woman and war
What are they for -- not the good of Man

Woman brings us beauty, woman brings us love
Woman bears our children loved by All above

War will bring us hatred, war will bring us strife
War will thrust our souls into a dying life

Woman and war
We must be rid of one of them
Which one will it be
