Cat's in the Cradle Lyrics

Cat's in the Cradle(In the Style of Harry Chapin (Karaoke Version Teaching Vocal)) - ProTracks Karaoke

 

My child arrived just the other day

 

He 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

And he was talking fore I knew it

And as he grew

He'd say 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 you coming home Dad

I don't know when

We'll get together then

 

You know we'll have a good time then

 

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 ok

And he walked away

But his smile never dimmed

And said 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 you coming home Dad

I don't know when

We'll get together then

 

You gonna have a good time then

 

Well he came from college just the other day

So much like a man I just had to say

Son I'm proud of you can you sit for a while

He shook his head and 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 you coming home son

I don't know when

We'll get together then Dad

You know we'll have a good time then

 

I've long since retired

My son's moved away

 

I called him up just the other day

 

I said I'd like to see you if you don't mind

He said I'd love to Dad

If I can find the time

 

You see my new job's a hassle

And 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 it occurred 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 in the moon

When you coming home son

I don't know when

 

We'll get together then yeah

 

You know we'll have a good time then
