A child arived just the other day.
Came to the world in the usual way.
But the planes to catch and bills to pay.
He learned to walk while I was away.
He was talkin' 'fore I knew it.
And as he grew he said I'm gonna be like you dad.
You know I'm gonna be like you.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon.
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
When yoou're comin' home son I don't know when.
Will get together then.
You know will have a good time then.

Well my son turned ten just the other day.
He said thanks for the ball now come on let's play.
Could you teach me to throw I said not today
I got a lot to do he said that's okay yeah.
He walked away and he smiled he was such a doll.
I'm gonna be like him yeah. You know I'm gonna be like him.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon.
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
When yoou're comin' home son I don't know when.
Will get together then.
You know will have a good time then.

Well he came from collage 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 cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon.
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
When yoou're comin' home son I don't know when.
Will get together then.
You know will have a good time then.

I've long since retired and 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 a hazzle and the kids hade the flu.
But it's sure nice talkin' to you dad.
It's been sure nice talkin' to you.

And as I hung up the phone it occured to me.
He'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 on the moon.
When yoou're comin' home son I don't know when.
Will get together then.
You know will have a good time then.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon.
Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
When yoou're comin' home son I don't know when.
Will get together then.
You know will have a good time then.
