Ugly Kid Joe - Cats In The Cradle (Chinese translation) lyrics
EN: My child arrived just the other day;
ZH: 我的孩子只是其他天到达 ；
EN: Came to the world in the usually way
EN: But there were planes to catch and bills to pay.
ZH: 但也有得赶飞机、 付帐单。
EN: He learned to walk while I was away.
EN: He was talkin' 'fore I knew it.
EN: And as he grew he said,
EN: "I'm gonna be like you, Dad.
EN: You know I'm gonna be like you."
EN: And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
EN: Little boy blue and the man on the moon.
EN: "When you comin' home ?"
EN: "Son, I don't know when.
EN: We'll get together then.
EN: You know we'll have a good time then."
EN: Well, my son turned ten just the other day.
EN: He said , "Thanks for the ball, Dad. Come on, let's play.
EN: Could you teach me to throw ?" I said, "Not today.
EN: I got a lot to do." He said, "That's okay."
EN: And he walked away and he smiled and he said,
EN: "You know,
EN: I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
EN: You know I'm gonna be like him."
EN: Well, he came from college just the other day,
EN: So much like a man I just had to say,
EN: "I'm proud of you. Could you sit for a while ?"
EN: He shook his head and he said with a smile,
EN: "What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys.
EN: See you later. Can I have them please ?"
EN: I've long since retired, my son's moved away.
EN: I called him up just the other day.
EN: "I'd like to see you, if you don't mind."
EN: He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
EN: You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu,
EN: But it's sure nice talkin' to you, Dad.
EN: It's been sure nice talkin' to you."
EN: And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
EN: He'd grown up just like me.
EN: My boy was just like me.
EN: (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
