Cats In The Cradle And a Silver Spoon

Bon Jovi

My 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 talkin: 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

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
Little boy blue and the man 'n 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 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

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?

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 finnnnd 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
