Great Lyrics

Cats in the Cradle by Ugly Kid Joe

I have been listening to this song for a while, always loved it, the music is great, the sounds are cool, and the lyrics are great, here are the lyrics:

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

He was talking ‘fore I knew it and when he could, he said
I’m gonna be like you, dad
You know I’m gonna be like you

And the cats 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

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 OK”

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”

And the cats 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

When 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’m feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys”
“See you later, can I have them please”

And the cats 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 don’t mind”
He said “I’d love to, dad, if I could find the time”

“You see, my new job’s ass and the kids got the flu”
“But it’s sure nice talking to you dad”
“Its been sure nice talking to you”

And as I hung up the phone is occurred to me
He’d grown up just like me
My boy was just like me, yeah yeah

And the cats 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

And the cats 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 the
