Father and Son

Dois momentos diferentes da música “Father and Son”. Primeiro com Cat Stevens, digamos, “original”. Depois Yusuf Islam, nome de Cat Stevens após sua conversão ao Islamismo, num vídeo recente.




FATHER AND SON (1979)

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 a lot
I 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
And it's always been the same, 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

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 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
