Mary Coughlan – Mother’s Little Helper Lyrics

“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 to 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 her husband’s just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and burns a frozen steak
And goes running to the shelter of her mother’s little helper
And she helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

Oh, 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 is much too hard today”, I hear every mother say
The pursuit of happiness is just a bore
And if you take more of those, you will catch an overdose
No more running to the shelter of a mother’s little helper

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

No more running to the shelter of your mother’s little helper
They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day
