National Health  The Kinks

Nervous tension, man's invention,
Is the biggest killer that's around to[C]day
Let the tension out or it will build and build inside
And strike you down some [G]day
Nervous tension, man's invention
Is the biggest waste of human ener[C]gy
Let the tension out, or it will surely kill
And that will be a trage[G]dy
[D]Valium helps you for a while
But somehow valium seems to [C]bring me down
There's [D]no pill I can recommend where side effects
Aren't guaranteed to [C]send you round the [D]bend
You gotta [G]let out the tension
With a [C]little bit of exer[G]cise
Loosen up your muscles
And feel the [C]knots in your body un[G]tie
We oh we oh
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah [G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah [G]
[G]It sure beats quaaludes
It sure beats cocaine[G]
Even Freud recommends it
Cos it re[C]lieves the strain[G]
Altogether now
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah[G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah [G]
[C]Some people say it sends you deaf
[D]Some people say it sends you blind
[E]Some people say it makes you old
[F]some people say it blows your [G]mind
But I say
[G]If it's good for your health
It's [C]good for your mind[G]
If it keeps you together
It's [C]really all right[G]
We oh we oh
Oh c'mon, kick the cat
[G]Oh oh oh oh it's the [C]state of the national health[G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]Blame it on the national health[G]
[C]Nervous tension, nervous tension,
[D]nervous tension,nervous tension
[E]nervous tension, nervous tension[F].
[G]Nervous tension, man's invention
Is the biggest killer that's [C]around
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah [G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah an [G]
[D]Valium helps you for a while
But somehow valium seems to [C]bring me down
There's [D]no pill I can recommend where side effects
Aren't guaranteed to [C]send you round the [D]bend
I say I say
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]it's good for your health[G]
[G]Keeps you together, [C]it's the state of the national health[G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]Blame it on the national health[G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [G]it's the state of the national health[G]
[G]Oh oh oh oh [C]ah ah ah ah[G]
