Cat's In The Cradle

Johnny Cash

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 talkin' 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 in the moon
When you comin' home dad I don't know when
But 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 okay
And he he walked away but his smile never dimmed
Said I'm gonna be like him yeah you know I'm gonna be like him
And the cat's in the cradle...

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 awhile 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...
[ guitar ]
Now I've lretired 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 the kids have 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...
