Complicated Life
by The Kinks
from "Muswell Hillbillies"


D A A D x2

Verse 1:

Well I woke this morning with a pain in my neck,

G                                    D
A pain in my heart and a pain in my chest,

I went to the doctor and the good doctor said,

G                                                           D
You gotta slow down your life or you're gonna be dead,

G                                    D
Cut out the struggle and strife,

A                                 D
It only complicates your life.

Verse 2:

Well I cut down women, I cut out booze,

G                                         D
I stopped ironing my shirts, cleaning my shoes,

I stopped going to work, stopped reading the news,

G                                                        D
I sit and twiddle my thumbs cos I got nothing to do,

G                  D
Minimal exercise,

A                                      D (let ring)
To help uncomplicate my life,

(D ringing out through this line)
Gotta stand and face it; life is so complicated,


D                                              A
Ladi dah di dahdah, ladi dah di dah dah,

A                                                              D
You gotta get away from the complicated life, son,

D                                 A
Life is overrated, life is complicated,

A                                              D
Must alleviate this complicated life.


A G D x2

G                                    D
Cut out the struggle and strife,

A                                  D
It's such a complicated life.

Verse 3 (same chords as Verse 2);

Like old Mother Hubbard, I got nothin' in the cupboard,
Got no dinner and I got no supper,
Holes in my shoes, I got holes in my socks,
I can't go to work cos I can't get a job,

The bills are rising sky high,
It's such a complicated life,

Gotta stand and face it; life is so complicated,

Chorus x2


A                                                        D
Gotta get away from the complicated life, son,

A                                                        D
Gotta get away from the complicated life.
