   D                      F
My child arrived just the other day,
    G                        D
 He came to the world in the usual way.
 D                                  F
 But there were planes to catch and bills to pay.
    G                       D
 He learned to walk while I was away.
            C               C/B          C/A   C/G
 And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew,
            F         F/E     D         F                  F/E     D
 He'd say, "I'm gonna be like you, dad. You know I'm gonna be like you."

              D                           C 
CHO 1:And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
      F                       G    
      Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
      D                              C   
     "When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when,
      F        F/E      D   
      We'll be together then.
          F                 F/E       D
      You know we'll have a good time then."

INTRO  2 first part

 D                          F
 My son turned ten just the other day.
 G                                   D
 He said, "Thanks for the ball, dad, come on let's play.
 D                                    F
 Can you teach me to throw?" I said, "Not today,
 G                             D
 I got a lot to do." He said, "That's ok."
        C            C/B            C/A        C/G
 And he walked away, but his smile, lemme tell you,
 F                F/E     D           F                  F/E     D  
 Said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah.  You know I'm gonna be like him."

              D                           C 
CHO 2:And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
      F                       G    
      Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
      D                              C   
     "When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when,
      F         F/E      D   
      We'll get together then.
          F                 F/E       D
      You know we'll have a good time then."

INTRO  2 first part

       D                             F
 Well, he came from college just the other day,
 G                         D
 So much like a man I just had to say,
 D                         F
 I'm proud of you. Can you sit for a while?"
 G                         D
 He shook his head, and he said with a smile,
           C                    C/B         C/A   C/G
 "What I'm fellin like, dad, is to borrow the car keys.
 F       F/E        D
 See you later. Can I have them please?"

              D                           C 
CHO 3:And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
      F                       G    
      Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
      D                              C   
     "When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when,
      F         F/E      D   
      We'll get together then.
          F                 F/E       D
      You know we'll have a good time then."

 D                              F
 I've long since retired and my son's moved away.
 G                        D                 D
 I called him up just the other day.........
  D                      F
 "I'd like to see you if you don't mind."
 G                                      D                D
 He said, "I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time.......
          C              C/B             C/A           C/G 
 You see, my new job's a hassle, and the kid's got the flu,
 F                  F/E        D
 But it's sure nice talking to you, dad.
 F                 F/E        D
 It's been so nice talking to you........
          C           C/B       C/A         C/G
 And as I hung up the phone, it occurred to me,
 F             F/E       D 
 He'd grown up just like me.
 F          F/E       D 
 My boy was just like me.

              D                           C 
CHO 4:And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
      F                       G    
      Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
      D                              C   
     "When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when,
      F         F/E      D   
      We'll get together then.
          F                 F/E       D
      You know we'll have a good time then."  X 2
