Father and Son
by Cat Stevens



FATHER:
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 allot
why, think of everything you've got
for you will still be here tomorrow
but your dreams may not

SON:
How can I try to explain
when I do he turns away again
it's always been the same
the 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

FATHER:
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

SON:
All the times that I've 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 they know
not me
now there's a way
and I know
that I have to go away
I know I have to go
