"[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[G]ittle boy blue and a m[A]an on the moon
[E]When you comin' home son, [G]I don't know when
[D]We'll get together th[E]en,
[G]You know we'll have a good time t[E]hen

[E]My son turned ten just t[G]he other day

[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"
[D]He walked away with a smile on his face, [G]he said
"I'm gonna be l[E]ike him, yeah,
[G]you know I'm gonna be like h[E]im"
CHORUS
[E]The cats in the cradle and t[G]he silver spoon
L[G]ittle boy blue and a m[A]an on the moon

[E]Well he came from college j[G]ust the other day
[A]So much like a man I just have [E]to say
I[E]'m proud of you, could you s[G]it for a while

Wh[D]at I'm feeling like, dad, is to borrow the car keys
[G]see you later, can [E]I have them please

[E]I've long since retired, my s[G]on moved away
[A]I called him up jus[E]t the other day

H[A]e said: I'd love to, dad, i[E]f I could find the time.
