Tea for the Tillerman is a masterpiece by Cat Stevens back when he was Cat Stevens. I love Father & Son. Reminds me and my father and my son and I -- I guess something about a cat and a cradle or a circle and a game. Go figure.

I loved and identified with this song 40 years as a 19 year old and was the son, now that I'm 59 I see the Father so clearly watching my son go the same way and will not listen any better than I did. Will we ever learn?

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.

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

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.

Cat Stevens is such a gresat artist his music is very inspiring and much about things in life we all live through
Report as inappropriate
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.
