"Father and Son" as written by and Cat Stevens Yusuf Islam....
It's not time to make a change, just relax and 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 am 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 a lot, why think of everything you've got
For you will still be here tomorrow but your dreams may not


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 I just have to go away
I know I have to go


It's not time to make a change, just sit down and 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


All the times that I've tried 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 I just have to go away
I know I have to go
