Cat Stevens - Father and Son

It's not time to make a change,

Just relax, take it easy.

You're still young, that's your fault,

There's so much you have to know.

Find a girl, settle down,

If you want you can marry.

Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that it's not easy,

To be calm when you've found something going on.

But take your time, think a lot,

Why, think of everything you've got.

For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.

It's always been the same, same old story.

From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.

Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.

I know I have to go.

It's not time to make a change,

Just sit down, take it slowly.

You're still young, that's your fault,

There's so much you have to go through.

Find a girl, settle down,

if you want you can marry.

Look at me, I am old, but I'm happy.

All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,

It's hard, but it's harder to ignore it.

If they were right, I'd agree, but it's them you know not me.

Now there's a way and I know that I have to go away.

I know I have to go.

Thanks for the lyrics...one of the sad things about C and g is that most of the guys here are not dads...and I've always thought a lot of people (including you, Camino) had some valuable things they could pass on to the next generation...

Thanks, Stang.

I never wanted kids of my own, but I have passed quite a bit to several generations while my business was still going. And, I have two nephews - so that's close enough for me.

Just felt like posting as I've been thinking of my own Dad today.

I thought about my Dad a lot this weekend...lost him over 10 years ago to cancer. I never really got to spend much time w/ him as an adult--from 18 I was away at college then grad school--then moved 1500 miles away to Colorado...we had a lot of time when I was growing up--he retired when I was 8 yrs old (he was 50 when I was born). Sometimes I envy the relationships my sister and brother had w/ him as adults, they had a lot more time w/ him since they are considerably older than I...

In October it will be four years since we lost my Dad - also to cancer.

Funny that this is the first fathers day that I have been preoccupied with thinking about him.
