30 day challenge day 8: A song that you know all the words to

Ugly Kid Joe—Cat’s In The Cradle

A song that you know all the words to? Is that really supposed to be a challenge? I amaze myself sometimes by singing the lyrics to songs that I’ve not heard for 10 years. Is that information that stored there in my brain preventing me from remembering other stuff? I hope not.

This is another song from 1992—a good year that for me. Ugly Kid Joe rose to fame and this was one of their most popular songs, a cover of the 1974 Harry Chapin song.

This song came to mind because I was talking about it to a friend just the other day. It’s partly because of this song that I try to spend as much time as I do with Reuben, Joshua and Isaac.
