Better Lyrics:
(War, huh) Yeah!

Edwin Starr's, "War"
Better Lyrics:
Ballet is the tool of all girlhood
The thought of ballet calms her mind
Ballet has caused relaxation within the younger generations
Induction then graduation
Who wants to dance?
Original Lyrics:
War is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest within the younger generations
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die?
