                [E]My child arrived just the [G]other day, He [A]came to the world in the [E]usual way
But there were planes to catch and [G]bills to pay, [A]He learned to walk while I [E]was away
And he was [D]talking 'for I knew it, and as he grew
He said "[G]I'm gonna [Bm]be like [E]you, dad, you know [G]I'm gonna [Bm]be like [E]you"

    And the [E]cat's in the cradle and the [D]silver spoon, [G]Little boy blue and the [A]man in the moon
    [E]"When you commin' home dad (son)?" "I [D]don't know when, But [G]we'll get to[Bm]gether [E]then, (Dad)
    You know [G]we'll have a [Bm]good time [E]then."

My [E]son turned ten just the [G]other day He said [A]"Thanks for the ball dad, come [E]on let's play
Can you teach me to throw" I said [G]"Not today I got a l[A]ot to do" He said "[E]Thats OK"
[D]He walked away but his smile never dimmed, 
It said [G]I'm gonna [Bm]be like [E]him, yeah, You [G]know I'm gonna [Bm]be like [E]him

Well he [E]came from college just the [G]other day So [A]much like a man I just [E]had to say
"Son I'm proud of you can you [G]sit for a while?" [A]He shook his head and he [E]said with a smile,
"What I'd [D]really like dad is to borrow the car keys, 
[G]See you [Bm]later can I [E]have them please?"

I've [E]long since retired, my [G]son's moved away[A] I called him up just the [E]other day
I said "I'd like to see you if [G]you don't mind" He said "I'd [A]love to dad if I could [E]find the time,
You see the my [D]new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu 
But it's [G]sure nice [Bm]talkin' to [E]you dad.  It's [G]sure nice [Bm]talkin' to [E]you"
And as I [D]hung up the phone it occurred to me, 
He'd [G]grown up [Bm]just like [E]me.   My [G]boy was [Bm]just like [E]me
