The song begins with the line that is also heard as the last line in the repeated bridge section:. 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 .
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, to your busy dying day . The song is based around folksy chords and an eastern-flavoured guitar riff sounding like a sitar , but is a dual- slide riff played on two electric string guitars by Brian Jones and Keith Richards.
