about

Hypertension is a serious illness. My intention is not to scare people but to make people aware of the disease and encourage people to go to their physician to check their blood pressure on a regular basis.

lyrics

HYPERTENSION (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)

(MEL BORINS/ MITCH GIRIO)

There’s a secret,
You’ve got a secret,
That your body’s not telling you.
Hypertension,
Did I mention,
A silent killer’s stalking you.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.

It’s not a joke,
When you have a stroke.

If your hand goes weak,
And you find it hard to speak,
You may be having a T.I.A.
If your head aches,
Then for heaven sakes,
Measure your blood pressure right away.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.
BRIDGE
Lose the weight,
Exercise,
Protect your kidneys and your eyes.
Halt the salt,
Trim the fat,
You don’t want a heart attack.

It’s not a joke,
When you croak.

Don’t forget to measure,
Your blood pressure,
It’s the only way to know if it’s high.
And if it’s raised,
Take pills each day,
You really don’t want to die.
CHORUS
Your heart’s grown more than twice its size,
The pressure builds in the arteries in your eyes
What a strange surprise
When you realize you’ve died.
