Cats in the cradle - Ugly Kid Joe

Strophe) 

A child arrived just the other day 

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 

He was talking fore I knew it and as he grew he said 

I´m gonna be like you, dad 

You know I´m gonna be like you 

 

Refrain) 

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 gogether then 

You know we´ll have a good tome then 

 

 

Strophe) 

Well my son turned ten just the other day 

He said   Thanks for the ball dad, come on let´s play 

Yould you teach me to throw, I said Not today 

I got a lot to do, he said That´s Ok

And he walked away and he smiled and he said 

I´m gonna be like him, yeah 

You know I´m gonna be like him 

 

Refrain) 

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 gogether then 

You know we´ll have a good tome then 

 

Strophe) 

Well 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 

What I´d really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys 

See you later, can I have them please 

 

Refrain) 

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 gogether then 

You know we´ll have a good tome then 

 

Strophe) 

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 a hassle and the kids have the flu 

But it´s sure nice talking to yu dad 

It´s been sure nice talkin´to you

 

Bridge) 

And as I hung up the phone is occurred to me 

He´d grown up just like me 

My boy was just like me 

 

Refrain) 

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 gogether then 

You know we´ll have a good tome then
