The Rolling Stones - Mother’s little helper
Tekst en muziek: Mick Jagger en Keith Richards
(1966)






What a drag it is getting old



“Kids are different today”
I hear ev’ry 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 a mother’s little helper
And it helps her on her way
Gets her through her busy day



“Things are different today”
I hear ev’ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband’s just a drag
So she buys an instant cake
And she burns her frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter
Of a mother’s little helper
And two 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 ev’ry 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 a 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 ev’ry 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
