NOTE:
For those of you still reading the last comment which was back in 2009 and had a rating
back then of 4 stars please note that I HAVE MADE CORRECTIONS TO THE ORIGINAL TAB I HAD 
a while ago and to me sounds perfect now... However, once the ratings came in and went 
to 4 stars it is extremely hard to get it back up to a 5 star rating... MOST EVERYONE 
NOW RATES IT 5 STARS but there are still a few that just follow the rating previously 
given which was 4 stars instead of 5. Please take this all into consideration as you 
rate this tab now... Please compare this chord tab to all the other chord tabs of this 
song and you will see that this one in my opinion is the easiest to put on auto scroll 
to follow and the most accurate in spite of the rating.

[VERSE]
        Em   
      "Kids are different today,"

       I hear every mother say
                                                  F D
       Mother needs something today to calm her down
                   G
       And though she's not really ill
                  C      Em7    Am
       There's a little yellow pill


[BREAK] 
                 Am              
       She goes running for the shelter 
             D7             
       Of a mother's little helper
               Em
       And it helps her on her way

       Gets her through her busy day

       "Things are different today,"

       I hear every mother say
                                                   F D
       Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
               G
       So she buys an instant cake 
                 C       Em7     Am
       And she burns her frozen steak


[BREAK] 
                     Am              
       And she goes running for the shelter 
             D7             
       Of a mother's little helper
               Em
       And two help her on her way

       Gets her through her busy day

                      D
       Some more of these
                    G
       Outside the door
                      C
       She took four more
        Am     C      D          Em

       "Men just aren't the same today"

       I hear every mother say
                                                 F   D
       They just don't appreciate that you get tired
                   G
       They're so hard to satisfy
                 C     Em7      Am
       You can tranquilise your mind


[BREAK]
               Am
       So go running for the shelter
             D7
       Of a mother's little helper
                   Em

       Help to minimise your plight

       I hear every mother say
                                              F  D
       The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
               G
       And if you take more of those
                 C     Em7  Am
       You will get an overdose


[BREAK]

This is the best version to play of the song. Sounds 100% correct to me. Thanks for doing the entire song the way it should be done.
