My Dchild arrived just the Fother day; GCame to the world in the Dusual way But there were Dplanes to catch and Fbills to pay. He Glearned to walk while I Dwas away. He was Ctalkin' 'fore I knew it. And as he grew he said, "IF'm gonna be like Dyou, Dad. You Fknow I'm gonna be like Dyou."

Chorus

And the Dcat's in the cradle and the Csilver spoon, LFittle boy blue and the Gman on the moon. "WDhen you comin' home ?" "Son, I Cdon't know when. FWe'll get together Dthen. You Fknow we'll have a good time Dthen." Well, my son turned ten just the other day. He said , "Thanks for the ball, Dad. 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." And he walked away and he smiled and he said, "You know, I'm gonna be like him, yeah. You know I'm gonna be like him."

Chorus

Well, he came from college 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 ?"

Chorus

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, Little boy blue and the man on the moon. "When you comin home, Son ?" "I don't know when. We'll get together then. 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'd like to see you, if you dont 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 talkin' to you, Dad. It's been sure nice talkin' 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.

Chorus
