The Supremes was an American female singing group and the premier act of Motown Records during the 1960s. Originally founded as the Primettes in Detroit, Michigan, in 1959, the Supremes' repertoire included doo-wop, pop, soul, Broadway show tunes, psychedelic soul, and disco. They 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.

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
His kiss gets a little sweeter
Ooh, my heart gets a little weaker

I'm falling deeper
Deeper in love each day
I know he's no good for me
But I'm too weak to break away

Ooh, each day love gets a little stronger
Ooh, heartaches lasts a little longer

Help, help me mother dear
'Cause I can't help myself
Ooh, he treats your daughter bad
Keeps your daughter sad

So many times I've tried
Telling him we're through
But when he takes me in his arms
There's nothing I can do

Ooh, it's no use
I can't break loose
I keep love him more and more each passing day
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

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

Help, help me mother dear
Help, help me mother dear
He keeps your daughter crying
