Mothers Little Helper  Rolling Stones

e-0-2-3--3-2-0-- x2



[Em]Kids are different today, I hear every mother say
Mother [Em]needs something today to calm her d[F]own   [D]
And though s[G]he's not really ill, there's a l[C]ittle y[C]ell-[C/B]-ow [Am]pill
She goes [Am]running for the shelter of a [D7]mother's little helper
And it [Em]helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day
[Em]Things are different today, I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for her husband's just a [F]drag  [D]
So she [G]buys an instant cake and she [C]burns her [C/B]frozen [Am]steak
And goes [Am]running for the shelter of a [D7]mother's little helper
And two [Em]help her on her way, get her through her busy day
Doctor, [C]please, some more of [D]these
Outside the d[G]oor she took four m[C]ore
[Am]What a [C]drag it [D]is getting [Em]old
[Em]Men just aren't the same today, I hear every mother say
They just [Em]don't appreciate that you get [F]tired   [D]
They're so [G]hard to satisfy, you can [C]tranqui[C/B]lize your [Am]mind
So go [Am]running for the shelter of a [D7]mother's little helper
And four [Em]help you through the night, help to minimize your plight
Doctor, [C]please, some more of [D]these
Outside the d[G]oor she took four m[C]ore
[Am]What a [C]drag it [D]is getting [Em]old
Life's just [Em]much too hard today, I hear every mother say
The pur[Em]suit of happiness just seems a [F]bore   [D]
And if [G]you take more of those, you will [C]get an [C/B]over[Am]dose
No more [Am]running for the shelter of her [D7]mother's little helper
They just [Em]helped you on your way through your busy dying day
Outro:
[G]  [G]  [C]  [G]  [G]Hey!

You can skip the C/B chord. and the Am on what a drag. It makes it much easier.
