CATS IN THE CRADLE Lyrics - Ugly Kid Joe

Review The Song (5)



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 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 okay. and he walked away and he smiled and he
said ya know, I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
You know I'm gonna be like him.

And the cat's 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, he came from college just the other day,
So much like a man I just had to say,
son 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?

And the cat's 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 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.

And the cat's 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.

Just to refresh the memories of those, Ugly Kid Joe covered this Cat Stevens orginal. Although I personaly prefer the Ugly Kid Joe version, It's just alot harder to take as seriously as how Cat did It.

Message for Shahid | Reviewer: marcus | 11/22/06

Shahid - you are so right, my friend. But we are on this earth for a speck of time. Yes he may inherit the business one day, but it would be worth so much more to him if he shared more time with you now. Think about the lyrics to Luther Vandross's Dance With My Father.



Very Emotional | Reviewer: Shahid Javid | 3/9/06

I heared this song many times and it made me cry every time. I am going through the same situation as the dad in the song, busy busy with job and business, never have a time for my son Osmaan. He always ask me to do something together, but I tell him all the time that I am busy and have no time. I promised hime that "We will do something together some other time". That promise made him happy every time. This song resembles with my situation.



Emotional | Reviewer: Megan | 10/30/05

This is a sad song! But it is so true about people and their families! This song is one to considered through the ages it should never be over looked!
