"Mother's Little Helper" lyrics

Mother's Little Helper

What a drag it is getting old

"Kids are different today"
I hear every mother say
Mother needs something today
To calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill

She goes running for the shelter
Of her mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way
Gets her through her busy day

"Things are different today"
I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's
Just a drag
So she buys an instant cake
And she burns a frozen steak

And goes running for the shelter
Of her mother's little helper
And to help her on her way
Get her through her busy day

Doctor, please
Some more of these
Outside the door
She took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Men just aren't the same today"
I hear every mother say
"They just don't appreciate
That you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy"
You can tranquilize your mind

So go running for the shelter
Of your mother's little helper
And four help you through the night
Help to minimize your plight

Doctor, please
Some more of these
Outside the door
She took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Life's just much too hard today"
I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness
Just seems a bore
And if you take more of those
You will get an overdose

No more running for the shelter
Of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way
Through your busy dying day
Hey
