What a drag it is, getting old
"It's so different today", I hear every mother say
They just need something today, for confidence
And though she's not really ill, there's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And the kids are all away, it's a blue and busy day
"Things are different today", I hear every mother say
Couldn't crash before her husband, such a drag
So she buys a [risen] cake and she burns a frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And the kids are all away, it's a blue and busy day
Oh doctor, please, I'm [on my knees], outside the door she took for more
What a drag it is, getting old
When you stop and save today, I hear every mother say
They just don't appreciate that you've retired
They're so hard to satisfy, lookin' tranquil at your mind
And goes running for the shelter of her mother's little helper
And forgets her through the night, helps to minimize her flight
Oh doctor, please, I'm [on my knees], outside the door she took for more
What a drag it is, getting old
When you stop and save today, I hear every mother say
That this mood of happiness is such a bore
If you take some more of those, you will get an overdose
You'll go running for the shelter of your mother's little helper
And forget to run away
Hey!
Uh-oh! I fucked up there a little bit, please don't tell Mick!
Alright! Now it's time to play something a little different
It's a song of our first album (surprise 'em)
And it's gonna be rocking (surprise 'em)
Yeah, surprise, this is called "Surprise for you"
Surprise 'em, surprise 'em
Surprise, surprise (okay, tell 'em what it is)
(Wanna tell 'em what it is, or should I just start it?)
Start it, Frank! Hey, right on
Yeah, ow, alright!
