(Played during AOL sessions)

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 her husband's just a drag
So she falls and hits the cake
and she burns her frozen steak

and goes running for the shelter
of a mother's little helper
and to help her on her way
gets 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 for help you through your 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 since you take more of those, you will get to know the dose

No more running for the shelter
of a mother's little helper
They just help you on your way
through your busy dying day

Hey!
