???? : cats in the cradle

?????? : ugly kid joe

????????? :

My child arrived just the other day

came to the world in the usual way

but there were planes to catch

and bills to pay

he learned to walk while I was away

he was talking for a minute

and as he grew

he’d say I’m gonna be like you Dad

you know I’m gonna be like you

And the cats in the cradle

and the silver spoon

little boy blue and the

man on the moon

when you comin’ home son

I don’t know when

we’ll get together then

you know we’ll have

a good time then

Well my son turned ten

just the other day

he said thanks for the ball Dad

come on let’s play

can you teach me to throw

I said not today – I got a lot to do

he said that’s o.k.

and he walked away and he

smiled and he said

you know I’m gonna be like him yeah

you know I’m gonna be like him

And the cats in the cradle …

Well he came from college

just the other day

so much like a man I just had to say

I’m proud of you could you

sit for a while

he shook his head

and he said with a smile

what I’d really like Dad

is to borrow the car keys

see you later can I have them please

And the cats in the cradle …

I’ve long since retired

my son’s moved away

I called him up just the other day

I’d like to see you if you don’t mind

he said

I’d love to Dad

if I could find the time

you see my new job’s hassle

and the kids have the flu

but it’s sure nice talking to you Dad

it’s been sure nice talking to you

and as I hung up the phone

I occured to me

he’d grown up just like me

my boy was just like me

And the cats in the cradle …

And the cats in the cradle …

Be the first to like.
