Song Lyrics

Something's on my mind
Mother dear, the boy keeps me crying
Don't know which way to turn
Keeps me so confused, keeps me so confused

Mother dear, 'cause for him I yearn
But he treats your daughter bad, keeps your daughter sad
I wish I didn't love him so, 'cause now I can't let him go
Each kiss gets a little sweeter, ooh, my heart gets a little weaker

I'm falling deeper, deeper in love each day
He's no good for me, but I can't break away
Ooh, each day love gets a little stronger
Ooh, heartaches lasts a little longer

Help, help me mother dear
Help, help me mother dear

All my love to him I give it, without him around, I couldn't live
I need him so and he knows it, can't let him go and I show it
Many times I've tried, telling him we're through
But when he takes me in his arms, there's nothing I can do

Oh, it's no use, I can't break loose
I keep loving him more and more and more each passing day
Help, help me mother dear, I'm so in love with him
But he treats your daughter bad, he keeps your daughter sad

I'm calling mother dear, I'm fallin' in love with him
But he treats your daughter bad, he keeps your daughter sad
Help me mother dear, I'm calling, help me, mother dear
But he treats your daughter bad, he keeps your daughter sad

I'm calling mother dear, I'm fallin' in love with him
But he treats your daughter bad

The Supremes were an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Founded as the Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, the Supremes were the most commercially successful of Motown's acts and are, to date, America's most successful vocal group with 12 number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Most of these hits were written and produced by Motown's main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland. At their peak in the mid-1960s, the Supremes rivaled the Beatles in worldwide popularity, and their success made it possible for future African American R&B and soul musicians to find mainstream success.
