[Verse 1A]

A child arrived just the other day
Came to the world in the usual way
There were planes to catch, bills to pay
He learned to walk while I was away

[Intro] - Play up to *


[Verse 2A]

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 OK"


[Verse 2B]

He walked away with a smile on his face, he said
"I'm gonna be like him, yeah,
you know I'm gonna be like him"


[Chorus]

The cats in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and a 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

[Verse 3A]

When he came from college just the other day
So much like a man I just have to say
I'm proud of you, could you sit for a while
He shook his head and he said with a smile


[Verse 3B]

What I'm feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
see you later, can I have them please

[Verse 4A]

Long since retired, my son moved away
I called him up just the other day
I'd like to see you, if you don't mind
He said: I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time.


[Vers 4Be]

You see, my new job's ass and the kids got the flew,
but it's sure nice talking to you dad,
it was sure nice talking to you.


[Verse 5B]

And as I hung up the phone is occurred to me
He'd grown up just like me
My boy was just like me!

2) = Bb
3) = Gb
