[Verse 1]

E GMy child arrived just the other day
A EHe came to the world in the usual way
E GBut there were planes to catch and bills to pay
A EHe learned to walk while I was away
D D/C# D/B D/AAnd he was talkin' 'fore I knew it, and as he grew
G D/F# EHe'd say "I'm gonna be like you dad
G D/F# EYou know I'm gonna be like you"
[Chorus]
E DAnd the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon
G ALittle boy blue and the man on the moon
E DWhen you comin' home dad? I don't know when
G D/F# EBut we'll get together then son
G D/F# EYou know we'll have a good time then
[Verse 2]
E GMy son turned ten just the other day
A EHe said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad, come on let's play
E GCan you teach me to throw", I said "Not today
A EI got a lot to do", he said, "That's ok"
D D/C# D/B D/AAnd he walked away but his smile never dimmed
G D/F# EAnd said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah
G D/F# EYou know I'm gonna be like him"
[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
E GWell, he came home from college just the other day
A ESo much like a man I just had to say
E G"Son, I'm proud of you, can you sit for a while?"
A EHe shook his head and said with a smile
D D/C# D/B D/A"What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys
G D/F# ESee you later, can I have them please?"
[Chorus]

G AI called him up just the other day
E GI said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind"
A EHe said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I can find the time
D D/C# D/B D/AYou see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu
G D/F# EBut it's sure nice talking to you, Dad
G D/F# EIt's been sure nice talking to you"
