Nervous tension, man's invention
Is the biggest killer that's around today
Let the tension out or it will build and build inside
And strike you down some day

Nervous tension, man's invention
Is the biggest waste of human energy
Let the tension out, or it will surely kill
And that will be a tragedy

Valium helps you for a while
But somehow Valium always seems to bring me down
There's no pill I can recommend where side effects
Aren't guaranteed to send you round the bend

You gotta let out the tension
With a little bit of exercise
Loosen up your muscles
And feel the knots in your body untie

It sure beats Quaaludes
It sure beats cocaine
Even Freud recommends it
'Cause it relieves the strain, altogether now

Some people say it sends you deaf
Some people say it sends you blind
Some people say it makes you old
Some people say it blows your mind, but I say

If it's good for your health
It's good for your mind
If it keeps you together
It's really all right

Oh c'mon, kick the cat
It's the state of the national health
Blame it on the national health

Nervous tension, nervous tension, nervous tension
Nervous tension, nervous tension, nervous tension
Nervous tension, man's invention
Is the biggest killer that's around

Blame it on the national health
It's the state of the national health

Valium helps you for a while
But somehow Valium always seems to bring me down
There's no pill I can recommend where side effects
Aren't guaranteed to drive you round the bend

I say, I say that it's good for your health
Keeps you together, it's gonna save the national health
Blame it on the national health
It's the state of the national health
