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).

    Did you throw them up in the air? At night? How did you do this?

    derrekdimond we dropped them, so they are falling in the air from above where I had the camera set up. i used a black screen behind and below the yellow pills. it was a team effort; i asked my husband to help me out, and he kindly assisted in this effort. i would need three hands to have done this shot alone.
