Arno - "Mother's little helper" (Rolling Stones cover, Live at Brussels)


What a drag it is getting old
"Kids are different today"
I hear ev'ry 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

"Things are different today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
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 ev'ry mother say
They just don't appreciate that you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy. You can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

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 ev'ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running to the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way through your busy dying day

(Από σήμερα και μέχρι και την Κυριακή λέω να ανεβάζω μόνο covers. Ο Arno δεν είναι και πολύ γνωστός έξω από τις γαλλόφωνες περιοχές. Αν πούμε ότι αv ο Hallyday είναι ο Elvis τους, ο Arno είναι ο δικός τους Tom Waits (με κάτι από Vaudeville μέσα - συνδιασμός που λειτουργεί γαμάτα). Στους δίσκους του δεν θα βρείτε αγγλόφωνες διασκευές. Στα live του όμως, κάνει μερικές εκπληξούλες σαν κι αυτό εδώ το πανέμορφο reworking του κλασσικού κομματιού των Stones)
