Father and Son - Cat Stevens Its not time to make a change, Just relax, take it easy. Youre still young, thats your fault, Theres so much you have to know. Find a girl, settle down, If you want you can marry. Look at me, I am old, but Im happy. I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy, To be calm when youve found something going on. But take your time, think a lot, Why, think of everything youve 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. Its always been the same, same old story. From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen. Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away. I know I have to Go. Father Its not time to make a change, Just sit down, take it slowly. Youre still young, thats your fault, Theres 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 Im happy. (son-- away away away, I know I have to Make this decision alone - no) Son All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside, Its hard, but its harder to ignore it. If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me. Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away. I know I have to go. (father-- stay stay stay, why must you go and Make this decision alone? )

This is lovely and provoking some memories of youth when I´ve heard the song very often ...

I just heard this song again yesterday. It is so sweet and I love singing along when I remember the words. Thanks for putting them down.
