That's gotta be 'Cat Stevens' song 'Cats in the Cradle'.
I remember when it came out back in the ..... early 70's I guess.
The song is about procrastination and how we let time slip away...but especially about how we
allow the important things in life, to slip away. The father works and never takes the time out to
enjoy his son or do any activities with him. Dad keeps telling him that he'll make it next time.
Finally the son grows up....to be just like his dad. Only the tables are now turned. Now the dad
keeps asking when his son will come to visit, and the son keeps saying...we'll get together soon...
which of course, never really happens.
