-He’d say, "I’m gonna be like you, dad.
You know I’m gonna be like you."
-He said, "Thanks for the ball, dad, come on let’s play. Can you teach me to throw?" I said, "Not today,
I got a lot to do." He said, "That’s ok."
And he walked away, but his smile never dimmmed,
Said, "I’m gonna be like him, yeah.
You know I’m gonna be like him."
-"When you coming home, son?" "I don’t know when,
But we’ll get together then, dad.
You know we’ll have a good time then."
-I said, "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 kid’s got the flu, But it’s sure nice talking to you, dad.
It’s been sure nice talking 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 in the moon.
"When you coming home, son?" "I don’t know when,
But we’ll get together then, dad.
You know we’ll have a good time then."
