    "And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon."

    Aside from history and source, what might be one's comments?

    Please be advised that anything posted here might be used in my latest hub masterpiece, as soon as I figure out what that is. smile

      I would say that the cat should get out of the cradle and let the silver spoon rest, while little boy blue continues to play with the man in the moon. tongue

      If instead of the cat in the cradle -  what happens if the experimental cat is in the experimental particle accelerator in Lucerne, might it meet itself coming back - from a visit to the man in the moon.

      Hey Billa,

      The cat's in the cradle? Saying that the cat should get into the cradle is absurd, considering it's already there. lol Just a thought. tongue

    They are all things or phrases from childhood, which is what the song is about.
    And that song always gets my eyes wet when I hear it. Great song.
    And remember to make time for your kids and enjoy them while you can!

    Lavender's blue, dilly dilly, lavender's green,
    When I am king, dilly, dilly, you shall be queen.
    Who told you so, dilly, dilly, who told you so?
    'Twas my own heart, dilly, dilly, that told me so.

    Call up your men, dilly, dilly, set them to work
    Some to the plow, dilly, dilly, some to the fork,
    Some to make hay, dilly, dilly, some to cut corn,
    While you and I, dilly, dilly, keep ourselves warm.

    Lavender's green, dilly, dilly, Lavender's blue,
    If you love me, dilly, dilly, I will love you.
    Let the birds sing, dilly, dilly, And the lambs play;
    We shall be safe, dilly, dilly, out of harm's way.

    I love to dance, dilly, dilly, I love to sing;
    When I am queen, dilly, dilly, You'll be my king.
    Who told me so, dilly, dilly, Who told me so?
    I told myself, dilly, dilly, I told me so.

    The first time I heard that song, I decided that that was not going to be my case, so from then on I spent and still spend as much time with my kids as possible. Thank you for posting it it brought back many good memories....cool

    I don't know why I didn't post the whole thing to begin with. smile


    A child arrived just the other day,
    He came to the world in the usual way.
    But there were planes to catch, and bills to pay.
    He learned to walk while I was away.
    And he was talking 'fore I knew it, and as he grew,
    He'd say, "I'm gonna be like you, dad.
    You know I'm gonna be like you."

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when,
    But we'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

    My son turned ten just the other day.
    He said, "Thanks for the ball, dad, come on let's play.
    Can you teach me to throw?" I said, "Not today,
    I got a lot to do." He said, "That's ok."
    And he walked away, but his smile never dimmed,
    Said, "I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
    You know I'm gonna be like him."

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you coming home, dad?" "I don't know when,
    But we'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

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

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when,
    But we'll get together then, dad.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

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

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when,
    But we'll get together then, dad.
    You know we'll have a good time then."
