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, 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 OK And he, He walked away, but his smile never did, 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, But we'll get together then You know we'll 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 he said with a smile What I'm feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys See ya 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, But 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 could find the time You see my new job's a hassle, and the 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 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 you coming home son, I don't know when, But we'll get together then, dad We're gonna have a good time then
