Title: Mother’s Little Helper
 
What a drag it is getting old
drag: 拖累
"Kids are different today"
kid: 小孩 different: 不同的
I hear every mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
calm somebody down: 使某人平静
And though she's not really ill
though: 尽管,虽然 ill: 生病的
There’s a little yellow pill
pill: 药丸
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
run for: 赶往,跑向 shelter: 庇护,保护 helper: 帮忙者,助手
And it helps her on her way
on one’s way: 在途中
Gets her through her busy day
get through: 度过
 
"Things are different today"
I hear every mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
fresh: 新鲜的 
So she buys an instant cake
instant: 即食的
And she burns her frozen steak
burn:  frozen steak: 【冰冻的牛排】 frozen: 冰冻的 steak: 牛排
And goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two helps 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
appreciate: 意识到
They’re so hard to satisfy
satisfy: 满意,满足
You can tranquilize your mind
tranquilize: 使之平静 mind: 头脑
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night
Help to minimize your plight
minimize: 减少到最小 plight: 悲惨的遭遇 
 
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
pursuit: 追求 happiness: 幸福 seem: 看起来,似乎 bore: 令人讨厌的事
And if you take more of those
You will get an overdose
overdose: 用药过量
No more running to the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way
Through your busy dying day
