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 a 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 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 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 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 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

 

(*actually, it's just Flexeril, a muscle relaxant often prescribed for fibromyalgia).
