C                           E7
There's a telegram for you, ma'am
Am       F#dim 
And the message is clear
F                         G
It says there's something bugging you
And buzzing in your ear
C                        Am
The results can be quite itchy
F               Adim
So what is your reply?
F             G7           C
Tell your arm to swat that fly!
     F                   G
Hey, there's a telegraph line
        C 
You got yours and I got mine
F               G       C 
It's called the nervous system
F             G
And everybody understands
E7             Am 
Those telegram commands
        F          G                C
And you know that everybody better listen!
C           E7
The central nervous system
   Am                F#dim
Is the brain and the spine
F                      G7
The brain controls the system
F                    C
And the spine is the line
                E7 
Telegrams come in
               Am           F#dim
To tell what's happening to you
F                 G
Then telegrams go out
F                 C
To tell your body what to do

C                  E7
There's a telegram for you, sir
       Am             F#dim
Better read it on the spot
F                  G
It says your hand is near a stove
F                 C 
That's very, very hot
                         Am 
The results can be quite painful
                        F#dim
And there's no time to think
F                G          F                  C
Quick, pull that hand away, and get it to the sink!
F
There's a telegraph line
        C 
You got yours and I got mine
F               G        C
It's called the nervous system
F             G
And everybody understands
      E7       Am
Those telegram commands
    F                  G           C 
And you know that everybody better listen!
                E7
Your peripheral nerves
     Am     F#dim 
They go all out
F                G
Delivering those messages
            C 
Your senses send out
                  E7  
From your hearing and touch
        Am                  F#dim
To your sight and taste and smell
F                   G 
They let your brain react
F                   G      C 
To all the messages they tell

There's a telegram for you, kid
         Am          F#dim
And it's at an awful time
   F                  G 
It says you've got to go on stage
    F 
And you forgot your lines
C                  E7 
You're going to be embarrassed
             Am           F#dim 
Because this telegram's a rush
F                         G              C
Your heart starts beating faster and you blush!
     F                   G
Hey, there's a telegraph line
        C 
You got yours and I got mine
F               G       C 
It's called the nervous system
              E7 
And everybody understands
      Am       F#dim

    F                  G           C 
And you know that everybody better listen!
    E7
The autonomic system
      Am      F#dim 
Has a hold of you
F               G 
Controlling automatically
     F               G 
Some things that you do
     C             E7
Your breathing and your heartbeat
     Am             F#dim
Just go on naturally
    F                        G      F   G      C
And when you're scared, your nerves rev up the speed!
