A child arrived just the other day, Came to the world in the usual way,But there were planes to catchAnd bills to pay, he learned to walk while I was awayHe was talking before I knew it and as he grewHe said I"m going to be like you Dad,You know I"m going to be like you.And the cat"s in the cradle, and the silver spoon,Little Boy Blue, and the Man in the Moon,When you coming home son, I don"t know whenWe"ll get together then, you know we"ll have a good time then.My son turned 10 just the other day,Said thanks for the ball now c"mon let"s playWill you teach me to throw, I said not today,I"ve got a lot to do, he said that"s okAnd he walked away and he smiled and he saidYou know I"m going to be like you, Dad,You know I"m going to be like you.And the cat"s in the cradle, and the silver spoon,Little Boy Blue, and the Man in the Moon,When you coming home son, I don"t know whenWe"ll get together then, you know we"ll have a good time then.He came from college just the other day,So much like a man I just had to say,I"m proud of you, won"t you sit for a whileHe shook his head and said with a smile,What I"m feeling like, Dad, is to borrow the car keysSee you later can I have them please.And the cat"s in the cradle, and the silver spoon,Little Boy Blue, and the Man in the Moon,When you coming home son, I don"t know whenWe"ll get together then, you know we"ll have a good time then.I"ve long since retired and my son"s moved awayI called him up just the other dayI"d like to see you, if you don"t mindHe said I"d love to Dad, if I could find the timeYou see my new job"s a hassle and the kids have the fluBut it"s sure nice talking you Dad, it"s been real nice talking to you.And as I hung up the phone it occured to meHe"d grown up just like me, my boy was just like me.And the cat"s in the cradle, and the silver spoon,Little Boy Blue, and the Man in the Moon,When you coming home son, I don"t know whenWe"ll get together then, you know we"ll have a good time then.And the cat"s in the cradle, and the silver spoon,Little Boy Blue, and the Man in the Moon,When you coming home son, I don"t know whenWe"ll get together then, you know we"ll have a good time then.
