(Verse 1)
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,
Hed say Im gonna be like you, yeh,
I know Im gonna be like you.

(Chorus)
And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon.
When ya comin home Dad?
I dont know when, well get together then, son,
ya know well have a good time then.

(Verse 2)
Well my son turned 10 just the other day,
He said Thanks for the ball Dad, come lets play.
Can ya teach me to throw? I said
Not today, I got a lot to do. He said Thats ok.
And then, he walked away but a smile never came,
He said Im gonna be like him, yeh,
Ya know Im gonna be like him.

(Chorus)
And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon.
When ya comin home Dad?
I dont know when, well get together then, son,
ya know well have a good time then.

(Verse 3)
Well he came from college just the other day,
So much like a man I just had to say
Son Im proud of you, can ya sit for a while?
He shook his head, and he said with a smile
What Id really like Dad, is to borrow the car keys.
See ya later, can I have them please?

(Chorus)
And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon.
When ya comin home son?
I dont know when, well get together then, Dad,
ya know well have a good time then.

(Verse 4)
Well Ive long since retired, my sons moved away,
I called him up just the other day.
I said Id like to see you, if you dont mind.
He said Id love to Dad, if I can find the time.
You see my new jobs a hassle and the kids have the flu,
But its sure nice talking to you Dad,
Its been sure nice talking to you.
And as he hung up the phone it occurred to me,
Hed grown up just like, my boy, was just like me.

(Chorus)
And the cats in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little Boy Blue and The Man In The Moon.
When ya comin home son?
I dont know when, well get together then, Dad,
were gonna have a good time then.
