The Rolling Stones – Mother’s Little Helper Song Lyrics

Artist: The Rolling Stones
Album: Aftermath

[Intro]
What a drag it is getting old

[Verse 1]
“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

[Refrain]
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

[Verse 2]
“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 buys a frozen steak

[Refrain]
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

[Chorus]
Doctor, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

[Verse 3]
“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

[Refrain]
So go running for the shelter of your mother’s little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimise your plight

[Chorus]
Doctor, please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

[Verse 4]
“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

[Refrain]
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
