Published on June 15, 2016 with No Comments

Cat’s in the Cradle is a 1974 folk rock song by Harry Chapin from the album Verities & Balderdash. The single topped the Billboard Hot 100 in December 1974. As Chapin’s only No. 1 hit song, it became the best known of his work and a staple for folk rock music.

The song is told in the first-person by a father who is too busy with work to spend time with his son.

In 1992, the hard rock band Ugly Kid Joe included a cover of “Cat’s in the Cradle” on their debut album America’s Least Wanted. The cover was issued as a single in 1993 and peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100, the group’s highest ever position on that chart.
