Three Cheers for the NHS

THREE CHEERS FOR THE NHS 
Words Sandra Kerr, tune John Brown’s Body

Well every Thursday evening when the clock is striking eight
The people all come to their doors or to their garden gate
They lean out of their windows, and the sound they make is great
As they cheer the NHS!

CHORUS: 
Glory, Glory Hallelujah , everybody’s singing to yah
We’re all out today, because we really want to say
Three cheers for the NHS!

Some clap their hands for ages, till their fingers they are sore
Some they whistle, some they shout and some call out for more
Some bang a spoon or pan or stamp their feet upon the floor
Three cheers for the NHS!

We’re cheering for the nurses and for all the doctors too,
For cleaners and for drivers, we are not forgetting you
And all you lovely carers, thanks so much for all you do
Three cheers for the NHS.

There’s others who are working just to keep us well-supplied
You’re out there facing danger, while we all are safe inside
The service you have given us must never be denied
Three cheers for the NHS.

And when this time has passed we hope you all will get your due
For your courage and commitment will have helped to see us through
You’re essential, indispensable, you’re loyal, brave and true.
Three cheers for the NHS.

CHORUS: 
Glory, Glory Hallelujah , everybody’s singing to yah
We’re all out today, because we really want to say
Three cheers for the NHS!
