"[G]I'm gonna be like y[E]ou, dad,
Y[G]ou know I'm gonna be like y[E]ou"
CHORUS
[E]The cats in the cradle and t[G]he silver spoon
L[D]ittle boy blue and a m[A]an on the moon

[G]You know we'll have a good time t[E]hen

[E]Could you teach me to throw?", I said "N[G]ot today
[A]I got a lot to do", he said "T[E]hat's OK"

[E]I've long since retired, my s[G]on moved away
[A]I called him up jus[E]t the other day
[E]I'd like to see you, i[G]f you don't mind
H[A]e said: I'd love to, dad, i[E]f I could find the time.
You see, [D]my new job's hassle and the kids got the flu,
b[G]ut it's sure nice talking to y[E]ou dad,
[G]it was sure nice talki[E]ng to you.
