You're still young, that's your fault
There's so much you have to know

Better than Teach Your Children or Cat's in the Cradle and that's saying a whole f**kin lot. Cat Stevens was one of the most sensitive singer/songw r i t e r s of the age. His lyrics are real and relevant and relate to life and lifetime issues, not just love./sex issues. Don't get that much any more. These kids have no idea what they missed.
Such a great musician. What a shame he went bat-spit crazy.

When I was a boy my dad would tell me that this song reminded him of me. Now that i'm a man it reminds me of him and of how much i love him. It also makes me think about my son. I want my son to know this song and think of me when he is a man. Great father son song... Brings me tears every time i hear it.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
Just a fantastic bit from the CAT.

I will always love his songs!!!
LOVE THIS SONG!!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Thanks, Cat,
we did when we went away to college
believe it or not you are not the first "generation" to feel misunderstoo d
Fantastic lyrics. Boomers, read these lyrics before sending your kids off to college
I will alway like Cat and his songs. Put the political crap in the ditch and listen to his music!
All my life's a circle by Harry Chapin gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it. Especially the live version where he gets the crew to sing the song. I am a father of two boys and a girl.
i just slit my wrists because of this song, other than that...a really good song i like it.
Does anyone know of any similar father/son songs?

Love it
Cat Stevens is such a gresat artist his music is very inspiring and much about things in life we all live through
it's a great song, so moving... so real, so basic. Cat Stevens creates an "everman dialogue" we've all been there.. receiving or giving this message.
I agree, Jamie.
A very moving song.
