"War" is a soul song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for the Motown label in 1969. Whitfield produced the song, a blatant anti-Vietnam War protest, with The Temptations as the original vocalists. After Motown began receiving repeated requests to release "War" as a single, Whitfield re-recorded the song with Edwin Starr as the vocalist, deciding to withhold the Temptations' version so as not to alienate their more conservative fans. Starr's version of "War" was a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1970, and is not only the most successful and well-known record of his career, but is also one of the most popular protest songs ever recorded. Its power was reasserted when Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band took their rendition into the Top 10 again in 1986.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_(song)

Are you speaking approximately Grace Slick ??? Is the music "White Rabbit" ?? "One pill makes you bigger, one pill makes you small, and those that mom delivers don't do something in any respect, pass ask Alice, while she's ten ft tall". What a minute..no count number if that's Nancy, it would nicely be "those Boots Are Made For Walkin' .

Edwin Starr has a version of War and Bob Marley has a version of War too. Not sure which one you like or wanted. I prefer Bob Marley's.
Hope that helps.
